Global Aviation & Aerospace Company, Meggitt, Award Quantum with Contract

13.03.2019

Quantum are pleased to begin working with Meggitt to extend their existing facilities in the Castle Bromwich area of Birmingham.

 

Work will begin later this month to construct an extension onto an existing test house facility, in addition to constructing a new building adjacent, as a storage unit.

The new extension will enable Meggitt to incorporate modernised systems into their testing facility. The construction will therefore include various specialised elements to accommodate unique machinery as well as elements incorporated to improve noise attenuation.

The existing unit, used to test aircraft tyres, will continue to operate throughout the construction period, so works will be carried out in close relations with the client to enable both to work simultaneously in a safer and productive manner.

The site is restricted by overhead power cables in close proximity to the proposed new storage building, requiring necessary precautions in construction processes. Given the history of the locality, during the WW2 period, there is the additional hazard due to the potential presence of unexploded ordnance which will require a preconstruction UXO survey.

Externally, new additional car parking, hardstanding area and supporting infrastructure will be provided.
