Offices include a new call centre space for the UK International Gateway to other DHL hubs. The project was an extension to integrate the existing aviation hub and is a turnkey fit out. The project was awarded a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating and EPC ‘A’ rating.
The extension works were carried out under a live operation over a 65 week period so the everyday operation of the existing facility continued without disruption, which was business critical for DHL Aviation. Security on the site was paramount as the works were being carried out adjacent to a live airport apron. Every person assigned to work on the project that would be air side had to be DBS checked as a clear criminal record was required.
It was also very important to get the installation of the flexible plant deck correct to house the ever evolving state of the art MHE Design.
A state of the art flexible sortation hub and new call centre space that maintained all service levels for DHL throughout the build. Security of the adjacent airport apron was maintained and protected throughout the programme. The new hub is the UK Gateway to other DHL hubs.
