Pro Steel secures Manchester Airport aviation project

Pro Steel Engineering has been successful in securing a major aviation project at Manchester Airport Terminal 2 on behalf of Manchester Airport PLC and Mace. The remit involves the Fixed Link Bridges, Single and Double Node Buildings, and Stairs required for the new Pier 2 Phase 2 Development.

The project valued at £11.3m will use a Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) approach for the steelwork modules to achieve programme and cost efficiencies for airport operations. The works involving 1400 tonnes of structural steelwork will take place through to Q4 2024.

The team will be managing the steel-to-steel connection design, manufacture of steelwork, application of intumescent fire rated paint system, off-site pre-assembly of steelwork and cladding and site installation of all structural steelwork for 4no single fixed link bridges and node buildings, 4no. double fixed link bridges and node buildings and 12no. steel node building staircases (72no flight and landings).

Richard Selby, co-owner and director, Pro Steel Engineering said: “As a team, we’re really excited to be part of this Manchester Airport project. It involves several different components and steelwork structures, and our factory in south Wales is already a hive of activity. We can’t wait to see it all come together and thank Mace and Manchester Airport PLC for trusting us with this scope of work.”
