  1. The Requirements

    While Terminal Two at Manchester Airport undergoes a £1bn transformation, airside office space and high-quality engineering workshops were required to accommodate specialist engineers from Storm Aviation.

    The space needed to be capable of providing a modern office environment as well as a specialist engineering workshop. Airside storage of aircraft tyres was essential along with a specialist heating and cooling system inside to maintain a constant air temperature, free from air currents and dirt.

  2. The Solution

    Joelle Ivett, Project Manager for MAN-TP, Arcadis said: “The Portakabin team had a fantastic attitude towards safety in this challenging location. Our site was well organised and the on-time delivery of the building enabled us to move tenants in and continue with the transformation programme almost immediately.”

Along with our teams working so well together, Portakabin has been absolutely key to this project. Their professional approach in wanting to get this job completed and to the highest standards has been refreshing to say the least.
