East Midlands Airport

ABOUT PROJECT

Working with main contractor GF Tomlinsons and lead consultant Moss Architecture, MP Consulting provided a full engineering service for the conversation of an industrial unit on East Midlands Airport site. The project comprised structural survey and reverse engineering of an existing steel framed portal building, to validate use as a fire station. Full building analysis proved that with minor structural strengthening, the frame could be re-used. The building was stripped to bare frame, insulated slab installed plus a new mezzanine area added to provide habitable space for watch members. MP Consulting provided design of foundations, steel frame, external and internal slabs, drainage system with environmental protection for fueling bays and vehicle wash. Project commenced Q4 2014 and will complete in 2015.
