Innovative creativity, design and delivery
Opening Cornwall to the world
Cormac’s work on this project was extensive. As well as providing complete civil and structural design services, this major design and build project comprised the strengthening of existing taxiways and aprons, extending apron areas to facilitate wide-bodied aircrafts, kerb removal between taxi-ways and aprons, installing aeronautical ground lighting across the site, and installing a foul sewer rising main. Cormac also delivered all associated infrastructure and incidental works.
Cormac's familiarity with the site and operations, phasing of works and experience in the aviation environment enabled us to deliver the programme with minimal interruption to scheduled services or airport operations. This included completing work in critical zones during the night while the airfield was closed.
All of the work was completed during the Covid lockdown which meant difficulties sourcing welfare for eighty personnel and national material shortages to overcome. But not at a cost to the environment, safety, quality or finance. The project was delivered on time, on budget, and on the world stage. All in just sixteen weeks.
