Project Background

 
The Vertical Circulation Core 1 (VCC1) is an independent freestanding staircase and lift core, which will be constructed in Phase 1 of the £15 million Birmingham Airport TE18 Terminal Extension project. The project will expand the airport’s terminal building, including an enlarged departure lounge and baggage area.

The new VCC1 main frame steelwork forms Phase 1 of the airport expansion project to enable the removal of the existing VCC structure prior to the main extension build. 

Supply and Fabrication

 
We supplied and fabricated all structural steelwork, secondary support steelwork for an external gantry and plant screen, and lift beams. The structure comprised a braced steel frame that utilised metal decking to four floor levels and a precast concrete stair core.

Our in-house project management coordinated the three alternative surface coatings (primed, intumescent, and galvanised), along with the supply and installation of 50mm thick plated grating, approximately 330 square metres of metal decking, along with Farrat thermal breaks to all connections to external members.
