Aviation case studies
Air service platforms, RAF Brize Norton
Interserve has designed and built Aircraft Servicing Platforms (ASP), capable of accommodating 18 refuelling and heavy transport aircraft, at RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire.
British Airways Maintenance, Cardiff
Located at Cardiff International Airport, British Airways Maintenance Cardiff (BAMC) provides engineering facilities to overhaul, repair, modify, test and inspect British Airway's long haul fleet of Boeing 747-400 and 777-200 aircraft engines.
Interserve’s engineering design skills, as well as the power and flexibility of its market-leading Alshor Plus shoring, were graphically demonstrated when main contractor Laing O’Rourke decided to use the system in the construction of Dubai airport’s immense and technically challenging new terminal.
Incheon International Airport, Korea
The new Incheon International Airport in Korea is widely acknowledged as one of the best in the world: among other accolades it won Skytrax’s silver medal for Airport of the Year in 2007 following the bronze in 2006.
Runway upgrade, RAF Brize Norton
An Interserve project to upgrade the runway, taxiways and ground lighting at RAF Brize Norton has maintained functional use of the airfield and extended the operational life of the runway by at least 15 years.
School of Army Aviation Middle Wallop
Interserve has created a modern, bespoke air refuelling training facility at the School of Army Aviation in Middle Wallop.
Interserve worked with Thomas Cook over a period of three years to refurbish and rebrand 501 of their stores, taking the branches from the original ‘red’ branding through to ‘blue’ and has also been involved in a number of projects including fitting-out of Thomas Cook foreign exchange bureaux at Heathrow airport’s Terminal 5 (T5).
Wideawake airfield, Ascension Island
Wideawake airfield at Ascension Island is an invaluable link and airhead for the South Atlantic, especially the Falkland Islands and St Helena. Keeping this airhead operational is therefore vital to the military people and freight using the island.
Virgin Atlantic Airways
The project comprising a development totalling some 13,000 sq m in plan area split between buildings and external works involved the construction of an Aircraft Maintenance facility and Ancillary buildings, consisting of a large steel framed hangar, up to 35 metres high, with a linked three-storey office facility.
