Project: Gatwick Airport - Pier 1 Apron and Taxiway Reconfiguration | Client: Vinci Construction UK Ltd | Duration: Oct 2014 - Jul 2016 | Suppliers: Titan Plant Hire Ltd and Lafarge Tarmac

Scope: Installation of WLC and PQC, AGL Ducting, Slot Drains and UKAS Testing


Gill Civil Engineering Ltd (GCEL), worked with Vinci Construction to construct Gatwick Airport Pier 1 Apron and Taxiway. The project was constructed over 4 phases, working both airside and landside. GCEL placed 46,000m2 of Pavement Quality Concrete (PQC) and Wet Lean Concrete (WLC); PQC depth varied from 350mm to 500mm and WLC was 150mm thick. Concrete was supplied from a nearby Lafarge Tarmac compound.

Integrated into our PQC works, we installed both AGL ducting and Gatic Slot Drainage. Due to the large scale and tight deadlines of this project, we worked on a daytime and night time shift to ensure works were completed on time.

Project Completion Date: Jul 2016
