Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group has awarded Lagan Construction International a £17 million Airfield Infrastructure project at Cambridge International Airport.
The main works will include the refurbishment of an existing apron, construction of a new taxiway, runway resurfacing and an upgrade to the drainage and airfield lighting systems and will require a combination of day time and night time working with over 100 workers engaged in the works.
There will be approximately 25,000m³ of excavation, cut and fill on the project. Approximately 6,000 tonnes of Type 1 stone, 10,000m³ of concrete and 65,000 tonnes of asphalt will be used. The team will re-use all excavated material within the works including the crushing and re-use of 3,000m³ of concrete. Overall the project is targeting a 98% recycling of materials on site and further recycling off site of other materials such as packaging.
Lagan Construction International will mobilise its in-house concrete plant, asphalt plant and associated laying equipment on the project and ‘self-perform’ a large proportion of the works.
The project is already underway and the works will be continuing until October 2015.
