There’s nothing more important to the future success of the UK than its airport infrastructure. That not only includes large corporate locations such as Liverpool’s John Lennon and Manchester Airport but smaller ones like Barrow Island and Warton Aerodrome. While most of us think of main terminal buildings and carparks, there are also a large number of hangers and storage facilities that make up any airport, big or small.

Undertaking a refurbishment project at an airport can involve a significant investment and a large number of people cleared to work within a secure environment. At Hightown Group, we’ve had significant experience dealing with stakeholders from the aviation industry, working in highly secure environments. We have consistently delivered high quality building work that now makes a big difference to operational effectiveness.

Our recent project to refurbish an aircraft hangar in the North West involved major building work including demolition of some structures, reinstalling a new electricity supply, constructing new offices and painting and decorating. This was a time critical project that needed to be brought in on budget and involved our team at Hightown working very closely with local stakeholders. Our success on this project led to a glowing testimonial from the Raytheon UK Operations Manager:

“I requested your contact details as I wanted to express my appreciation for the job completed on our hangar upgrade project by your company.

We are delighted with the result.

The work carried out by Tony and Phil was excellent and they were very professional and supportive all through the refit.

They made the difference on so many occasions and made my life so much easier”.

Part of our success over the years has come from our openness and transparency when dealing with clients. It has also come from having the right management processes in place and the teams who can deliver high quality at the best cost for our clients. Any project is only successful when you understand the requirements and have the specialist team to implement on them.

Hightown have managed to develop a strong reputation as one of the top building and construction firms, with offices in the North West and Midlands our experienced team can handle your next project. We work with a wide range of partners including higher education institutes, local businesses and organisations, research bodies, domestic customers and the aviation industry. Our experience and success, however, doesn’t come without a lot of hard work and attention to detail.

Airport refurbishments require a good deal of industry expertise as well as the right time and supply management skills. Working with a number of other sectors, we understand the importance of still being open for business while you have the updates undertaken for your airport infrastructure. At Hightown Group, health and safety lies at the heart of everything we do – that doesn’t just mean keeping our own teams safe but ensuring customers, employees and local residents can go about their business while a refurbishment is being undertaken.

Our project planning and management have been defined over the years by putting the right people in place for the job. Not only that, our work involves sourcing the best materials and ensuring that any construction meets the building standards the aviation industry demands. We are also a company that values sustainability. That means we handle issues such as waste with an eco-friendly implementation – repurposing and reusing waste where possible and sending as little as possible to landfill. This sustainability also stretches to the suppliers we use who share our ethos.

If you are planning an airport refurbishment, working with an experienced and talented team who can deliver on your vision is important. At Hightown, you can always depend on a collaborative and open approach, high standards of health and safety, all combined with the quality building work that you might expect from a long standing construction company.
