R&M Williams celebrates topping out Bristol Airport’s new fire station project
Created: 23rd May 2018
R&M Williams and the project team at Bristol Airport have topped out the structural steelwork at the site’s £4.3million state of the art fire station.
The new fire station is ideally located next to the runway and the existing fire training ground and will replace the existing fire station built elsewhere on the site in the 1980s. It has been built to accommodate the future growth of Bristol Airport.
R&M Williams already has experience of working within the aerospace industry and this project adds to the extensive range of sectors the Cardiff-based contractor is working in.
Darryn Parry, managing director of R&M Williams, said:
“We are really excited to be working with the airport on this state of the art project. It is particularly challenging for us as we have had to work within the confines of a secure and constantly working environment and build a modern and pivotal part of the airport infrastructure.
“We have been working closely with the project team at Bristol Airport and we are very proud to have been awarded this scheme. It is great to see the building’s steel frame work being finished so that the next important stage of the build can start. I can’t wait to see it progress over the coming months.”
Oliver Peat, Senior Project Manager, Bristol Airport, said:
“We are delighted to be working collaboratively with R&M Williams and to see the fire station development project take shape. A lot of team effort and partnership working has to take place to complete a project of this scale in a secure environment such as an airport. We look forward to seeing this exciting project completed. ”
