London City Airport Topping-out Ceremony Marks Terminal Renovation Progress

The installation of the new 1st floor in the terminal at London City Airport was marked with a topping-out ceremony today.

Richard Gooding OBE, Chief Executive London City Airport was joined by Kevin Murphy, CEO ExCel London, to commemorate the fitting of the 1st floor in the terminal, an important milestone in the airport’s £7 million terminal improvements project.

The renovation works, consisting of three phases, commenced early spring with phase one seeing the fitting of piles, steel columns and beams spanning across the concourse all in preparation for the installation of the new floor.  The second and third phase of the project will see the installation of a new stair case and 6 new security search lanes.

Richard Gooding OBE, Chief Executive London City Airport commented, “The 1st floor fitting marks an important milestone in the terminal renovation works. Increasing the handling capacity of the security search facility will maintain and uphold the airports high level of customer service and we look forward to completion.”

The first floor works take place during the airport’s nightly and weekend closure times to ensure there is no disruption to passengers. The programme is scheduled to be complete in early 2011.

The renovation works of London City Airport’s terminal are being undertaken by A.A Lovegrove Ltd, designed and project managed by Atkins Design & Engineering.
