Last week an Airbus A318 embarked on a very exciting 110-mile journey from Air Salvage International, based in the Cotswolds, to its new home at the Air & Space Institute (ASI) HQ in Newark, Nottinghamshire.
The Airbus A318 will serve as the cornerstone of ASI’s world-class training facility, affording students and apprentices an unparalleled environment for engineering, flight training, ground crew operations, and cabin crew training. With the practical benefits of the Airbus A318’s presence at ASI, bridging the gap between theory and real-world application for students.
When fully operational, ASI will host over 200 students per year and create around 40 new jobs in the area. This opens doors to students and future generations for well-paid careers in aviation.
“In a world where the sky is not the limit but only the beginning, ASI represents a place where dreams take flight.”
Temporary Works Support
We have been pleased to be part of the team providing the Temporary Works to the contractors G F Tomlinson ensuring the building can be erected safely and that the Airbus A318 could be installed when delivered to site. Due to the unique design and construction of the new facility it has allowed the project to accommodate the Airbus at this important stage of the project.
To date we have undertaken the following temporary works services
- Temporary timber hoarding for the perimeter of the construction site
- Piling platform
- Mobile crane platform designs for – the steel erection, plank Installation
- Roof cranage & installation mobile crane platform
- Setting out the sequencing, loads, restrictions, and agreements for the plane installation.
The temporary works designs relating to the Airbus A318 installation did not come without its challenges. Our team of engineers had to ensure that we avoided siting any of the proposed temporary jacks next to the movement joints in the permanent slab.
Drone Footage of the exciting installation coming soon….
