R&M Williams secures Bristol Airport development of new Administration Building
Created: 30th Oct 2018
R&M Williams is to partner with the project team at Bristol Airport to develop the site’s new Administration Building.
This will be the second Bristol Airport development for R&M Williams this year, having recently provided framework for the airport’s new £4.3million fire station, which is nearing completion.
Darryn Parry, managing director of R&M Williams, said:
“We are delighted that Bristol Airport has awarded R&M Williams this second major contract in 12 months. We have mobilised quickly to be on site and ready for work to begin, with the main structural steel framework scheduled for erection in early October.”
The office structure, which will comprise of three storeys, will house the project teams and senior management, alongside other services such as meeting and training rooms.
It is the latest project in a series of developments that are set to modernise and expand the site, and demonstrates Bristol Airport’s continued investment into sustainable, low carbon systems. The new building has been designed with energy efficiency in mind, with a carbon emission reduction of 23% over facility-building regulations.
Bristol Architects, Stride Treglown, have designed a very modern façade for the project that will establish the new office as a signature building on entrance to the airport.
“We are proud that this type of high quality, fast-track construction is one of our business strengths and we look forward to further cementing our reputation with Bristol Airport, with the successful delivery of both the fire station and administration block schemes. It’s a really state-of-the-art facility and we can’t wait to see the project take shape in the coming weeks.”
Andrew Goodenough, Development Director at Bristol Airport, said:
“We are delighted to be working with R&M Williams on this second project. The Administration Building will be the welcome that staff, airline and business partner guests will see and we wanted the building to visually blend in with the local environment whilst providing a state-of-the-art energy efficient facility.”
