projectNewcastle International Airport Extension

locationNewcastle upon Tyne, UK


Desco has delivered the M&E services design on various projects at Newcastle International Airport, including some minor refurbishment and modification works and most recently, the £3.2m new build extension to the airport’s existing terminal building which has provided some 5,242ft2 of additional space across three floors.

The construction of the extension, to the south of the building, was rolled out in phases to ensure minimum disruption to customers and airport operations.

The newly created accommodation includes additional security search and has allowed the airport to double the number of lanes for screening hand luggage. In partnership with UK Border Agency, the airport’s immigration arrivals area has been redesigned to provide a more efficient use of space and increase the number of presentation desks from four to six.

The project was complete on time and to budget and was officially opened by the Rt. Hon Theresa Villiers MP, Minister of State for Transport in July 2012.
