Construction of 400 car parking spaces at both Jet Parks and Long Stay car parks on behalf of East Midlands Airport. Requiring demolition of existing buildings, lighting, signage, car park bus routes, access roads and circulation roads.

Providing a ‘one stop shop’ Design & Build solution, we liaised with our tried and trusted design specialists to develop value engineering opportunities and provide best value for Manchester Airport Group (MAG).

Effectively collaborating with East Midlands Airport (EMA) Operational Teams at Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) stage, we discovered the original design was over and above the strict budget available.

Through our extensive technical knowledge and previous experience undertaking car park construction, we suggested utilising a ground stabilisation construction method, saving circa £50,000 in outturn costs and allowing the project to commence.

Developing a robust programme, our Contracts Managers ensured the scheme was completed on time and within budget. Effectively monitoring and reviewing key milestones and cost breakdowns and communicating these to MAG in real-time allowed an open and honest approach towards scheme delivery.

Achieving environmentally friendly, sustainable construction, our solution reduced muck away and virgin aggregate required, reducing HGV movements and overall carbon footprint of the scheme.

Reducing vehicle movements allowed our Contracts Manager to develop and implement robust traffic management plans that effectively minimised disruption to the airport critical activities, with no disruption to users of the existing car park.
