London Gatwick Airport

London's second largest international airport.

North Terminal Baggage Upgrade - £24m

The project to upgrade and modernise the North Terminal baggage system required the reconfiguration, replacement and augmentation of building services within the hall to support the 2 year build programme. Maintaining the existing system with adequate throughput through the Olympics required careful consideration of phasing, enabling and temporary works. New lighting with automatic lighting controls were provided throughout 3 levels of new baggage belts.  New ventilation air handling units were provided to the make-up chutes to improve the staff environment.

Departure Lounge Refurbishment,
South Terminal - £7.3m

The South Terminal expansion project amended the Landside/Airside boundary to create additional Airside Retail and improved amenities for passengers. Hulley and Kirkwood provided detailed design support for the reconfiguration and extension project providing additional central chiller capacity and associated plant on the new roof.  The Departure Lounge lighting was updated throughout with a new concept based on low energy lighting and automatic controls provided.

South Terminal Expansion - International Departures Lounge - £6m

The South Terminal expansion project was driven by the need to increase Airside retail facilities and improve the lounge areas.  This was achieved by reconfiguration of the Airside/Landside boundary to increase Airside areas. The boundary relocation required the reconfiguration of the existing services systems to reflect the reduced Landside facilities and the upgrading and provision of new installations to support the increase in Airside areas.

The original scheme design for the project was carried out by others and Hulley & Kirkwood were appointed direct by Crown House Technologies to provide design support through the production information and construction phases.
