MC Construction touches down at Manchester Airport!

MC Construction has completed a £450,000 upgrade to a 48,000 sq ft hangar at Manchester Airport which is used to service vehicles used on the airfield, such as passenger buses, aircraft tugs and baggage trucks. The 15-week project was the Salford-based company’s first under a new Manchester Airport building services framework.

MC Construction undertook below-ground preparatory works before refurbishing the entrance to Hangar 4 in the Western Maintenance Area with a new steel frame, insulated cladding and automated roller shutter doors. The company also created a new pedestrian walkway in the hangar. Much of the work went on out-of-hours to avoid disrupting day-to-day operations at the hangar.

Michelle Richardson, operations director at MC Construction commented:

“This was our first project under this exciting new framework and we are delighted to have assisted Manchester Airport in ensuring the creation of a modern façade for this hangar, without disrupting the day-to-day operations.”

The three-year framework covers airside and landside building works as well as fit-outs to retail, office and commercial properties.

Matthew Gillett, project manager for capital delivery schemes at Manchester Airport, stated:

“The project was complicated given the live working environment, but our key project milestones were met and it was a pleasure working with MC Construction on the programme. We look forward to working with the team again in the future.”
