Work is starting on a new £1bn ‘super-terminal’ at Manchester Airport. Readymix North West, after numerous meetings and technical submissions has secured the new Terminal 2 construction works for Expanded Piling and Structures, which started in September.
The project has 5,000m3 concrete in CFA piling works and 35,000m3 concrete in main works in the Terminal, all to be completed by spring 2019. It will be testing times for our Altrincham Plant team/IHCs and Shipping team to deliver this prestige contract in such a short time.
The International Departure Lounge of Terminal 2 will form one of the key features of the transformation works, spanning two levels and 32,467m2, the space will feature new dining, retail and seating facilities. An innovative double-storey green wall acts as the centre piece of the space. It is surrounded by bespoke seating, a children’s playground and an expansive ‘Market’ with dining, restaurants, bars and retail offers.
