Completion of Works at Meggitt, Castle Bromwich


The extension to an aircraft tyre testing facility and construction of a new storage building have been completed at Meggitt in the Castle Bromwich area of Birmingham.


The extension of facilities has enabled Meggitt to incorporate modernised systems in their existing testing unit. The construction included various specialised elements to accommodate unique machinery and improve noise attenuation. In particular, the high spec fit out to the extension included high voltage supplies, nitrogen gas and compressed air supply. There was also an intricate arrangement of plinths, pits and ducts all built into the floor slab.

The steel framed and cladded buildings are located on a tight site with overhead electric power lines. Good forward planning in terms of logistics enabled operations to run smoothly, both in terms of client activities and construction work simultaneously.

Externally, a new hard standing area and additional staff parking were created with associated drainage works.

Well done to the construction team for delivering another great project for a happy client.
