Manchester Airport

Enabling Manchester Airport’s Transformation Programme

We’re undertaking a very complex project at Manchester Airport that will enable them to continue their £1 billion transformation programme. Due to an electricity substation located in the middle of a taxiway, aircraft are only able to move one-in, one-out, which will affect the future expansion and capacity of the terminal.

Our team are moving the substation, which involves the construction of a brand new substation away from the taxiway, underground directional drilling beneath the taxiway and decommissioning the existing substation. This is all being completed in the middle of the very busy and operational taxiway, requiring the control of foreign object debris and the safety risks that come with working with electricity, construction and in an airside environment.
