Description

This major refurbishment will totally transform the dated appearance to a much more attractive educational environment. The plans include the formation of a new internal courtyard, the cladding of the exterior of the building and the surfacing and lighting of the western car park. Working with old record drawings is never reliable so to assist with design work SES undertook a building survey.

External building survey:

  • Overall footprint of the building
  • Elevations showing the verticality of the building line and underside levels of the steel support angle

Internal building survey:

  • As-built surveys of the finished floor level on each floor of construction
  • Overall internal dimensions

Description

Handling over 9,000,000 passengers a year and by 2013, passenger numbers are expected to reach 14 million, and as much as 26 million by 2030 it's no surprise MACE Group was brought in to build the South East Pier which provided an extra 6 gates to the existing main terminal. Our role as Project Surveyors meant that we were involved from the start to final handover. A large topographical verification survey had to be carried out which enabled Mace to plan with confidence all logistics as temporary fence lines were erected to partition landside to airside operations. As-built surveys were needed to establish exactly the position of the main terminal to allow for the fabrication of steel connection beams. Internal works entailed ground floor blockwork, stud partition walls and first floor gridlines to be set out.
