Desco provide MEP design and consultancy services to our client, who is the world’s largest independent provider of services for airlines and railroads. Our most recent project, completed in 2010, was a new production plant located adjacent to Heathrow International Airport, which is Europe’s largest airline catering food production facility, producing 1.5 million meals per month for first and business class passengers.

We have also delivered a series of smaller projects for the client around the airport site, including a major refurbishment of an existing food preparation, storage and distribution facility and conditional surveys of existing buildings. The schemes included frozen food storage, thawing, chilled, ambient and hot kitchen areas.

The projects required our team to deal with the air side services and the challenges associated with working in a live, 24 hour facility operating under the most stringent health and safety regulations in the food service industry.

We enjoy an ongoing relationship with this client and have a number of schemes under review at present.
