The challenge
Losberger was approached by Heathrow Airport Ltd to provide an additional storage facility to house various pieces of specialist equipment within a very tight timeframe and to a specific budget. Time was the key challenge to beat.


The solution
No time was wasted in formulating a proposal that demonstrated great value for money and was quickly approved by the client. A project program was created and agreed with the client. A 49 x 36ft structure with full electrical installation, electrical roller shutter doors, safety barriers and fire safety system with the ability to expand the building should the client outgrow the floor space was immediately ordered from Losberger, which responded with great speed and professionalism. Within 12 days from receiving the original inquiry, Losberger Airport Capacity Solutions was ready to build.  A German supervisor was flown in to oversee the erection of the structure and within three days he was on his way back home. The electrical fit-out took six working days to complete, after which the roller shutter door company arrived on site ready to install its bespoke system. Within two days the doors were installed and working and the building systems were ready to be tested. Due to the size and simplicity of the building, the testing and commissioning took only one working day to complete and the building was approved immediately by the client, who began using the building the next day.


The benefits

Since going live, there have been no issues with the quality or layout of the facility and the possibility of extending it by a further 33ft has already been discussed, as the client potentially requires more space. With this now in the pipeline, we are proud to say we have delivered another successful turnkey solution.
