Gatwick North Terminal Rail Interchange

Gatwick North Terminal Rail Interchange

West Sussex


Market Sector: Airports

Client: Gatwick Airport

Engineer: WSP

Main Contractor: Costain

In order to cope with increasing passenger numbers at the UK’s second busiest airport, Bourne Steel was contracted to supply the North Terminal’s new rail interchange.

Costain partnered with Bourne Steel to ensure the erection process was the fastest possible (keeping disruption to a minimum), without jeopardising the quality fabrication needed to deliver such an important project. Bourne Steel delivered the station’s architectural frame, floors, lift shafts and blast proof train enclosures.

To reduce construction time, the enclosures were brought to site fully assembled. This innovative process saw the project erected in just two days, which was imperative given the constant volume of passengers travelling through the airport.
