Michael led the Design Team on the development for the new Departures Building at Bournemouth Airport. As part of an overall masterplan planning permission for a new terminal building was obtained. The team developed a full set of Employers Requirements, working closely with the Manchester Airport Group, and assisted in the appointment of the successful Main Contractor. Extensive teamwork was required to develop solutions to accommodate a live airport that had to remain operational through-out the construction process.
A full understanding of security, customs and anti-terrorist measures was required to inform the design proposals. The scheme was closely scrutinised through the development stages to ensure value for money and cost effectiveness. The barrel vaulted main hall has potential for future accommodation to be incorporated at first floor mezzanine level.
