Inviron, the leading building services and facilities management provider, has built on an established partnership with Manchester Airport during the radical £35m redevelopment of Terminal 1.
This year, Inviron has completed the mechanical and electrical installation at the new airside food and beverage project. Inviron is now developing the new airside retail area, which has been relocated and expanded. This is to encourage passengers to move straight through security checks, as research shows that passengers relax fully once they have been through airport security.
The security area, also known as Outbound Controls, has been relocated directly behind the main check-in hall. Here, Inviron has commenced installation of all mechanical and electrical equipment, including lighting, heating and ventilation. This will help to ensure the comfort of passengers whilst passing through the airport.
As the work is being carried out in view of travellers using the airport, Inviron's staff have maintained a truly professional approach thanks to forward planning and considerate execution by the main contractors, working with each other and the Inviron team to ensure minimal disruption to the day-to-day operation of the terminal.
Also, as part of Inviron's work at Manchester Airport, a significant project to supply, install and commission Fixed Electrical Ground Power Units to 35 aircraft stands at Terminals 1 and 3 has now been completed. The state of the art units, which are much smaller and environmentally friendlier than the existing ones, will help reduce the environmental footprint of aircraft, as they provide power to the aircraft whilst they are on the ground. This contract began in August 2006.
