We are supplying skilled operatives to the concrete deck build at London City airport.

The £480m City Airport Development Programme (CADP) will build:

  • eight new aircraft stands
  • a new 50m high air traffic control tower
  • a full length parallel taxiway
  • 24,500m2 east and west extensions to the passenger terminal.

The piling and deck works are the first part of the CADP. Client Bam Nuttall is installing 1,100 steel and concrete piles in the bed of King George V dock in east London. These will support the new 75,000m2 concrete deck, which will hold the airport’s new terminal infrastructure and a new taxiway above the water.

City airport piling worksCreating this new ‘land’ is the UK’s largest in-shore marine construction project.

Our team includes slinger signallers and other skilled operatives working day and night shifts, led by experienced labour manager Donatas Jausicas.

The airport will continue to operate during the five-year programme by CADP and delivery partner Bechtel.
