The Wessex contract involved changes and new works to the sub-stations and supplies to the new and existing buildings. The works to the new building (landside and airside) involved containment for all services, as well as the general installation and wiring for the lighting and power to the new public areas.
Bournemouth Airport started work on its £45 million redevelopment programme in the summer of 2007. The new departures terminal will be double the size of the old building and the amount of retail/catering space will be tripled.
Over the past few years Bournemouth Airport has been one of the UK’s fastest growing airports. In 2001 the airport handled 265,000 passengers. It now handles over 1 million passengers a year and it is anticipated that the new terminal will be able to cater for increases in passenger traffic over the next decade and beyond.
Wessex Group Operations Director, Ali Morgan said; “Securing this important and valuable contract against stiff competition is a great testament to the variety of services the Wessex Group has to offer. This will be a relatively fast track project requiring a team of on-site managers and engineers to ensure that the project is completed on time and within budget. Facilities are being made at present for a new arrivals building that may be added to this contract or follow at a later date.”
"We can comfortably confirm that Wessex Building Services adopted our apoproach to embody team spirit and display a unified approach in getting the job done successfully, despite a large number of client driven variations that could have swamped a less capable contractor. We have both enjoyed and benefited from your teams energies and professionalism and are looking forward to working with yourselves again in the futurre."
