Project Summary

London Stansted Airport is one of the busiest airports in London, serving approximately 18 million passengers a year.

AECOM proposed a scheme to install mezzanine floors between the existing Concourse and Undercroft levels. The new mezzanine formed a Baggage Handling System (BHS) to accommodate six new Hold Baggage Screening (HBS) and Explosion Detective (EDS) machines.

This involved the installation of a new 3,900 square metre mezzanine floor and 850 square metre walkway within the existing baggage hall. 

Our scope of works included the structural design, detailing, supply and fabrication, and site installation of all structural steelwork along with all handrail, stairs, ladders, and lifting beams.

Our design responsibility briefly comprised: full design coordination; development of design to suit phase installation approach; preparation of structural design calculation for each structural phase including checks on existing structural elements affected by the modification

All airside deliveries were managed in-house, which required a documented logistics plan to be strictly adhered to, to ensure all deliveries were booked seven days in advance. All security measures were strictly adhered to by our site and logistics teams.

All of our operatives held full Stansted Airside passes to complete the works within the existing baggage hall.
