Eagle Bar, Newcastle Airport

Formation of new bar and diner within a high security, operational, “airside” airport environment.

This project entailed the careful selection, vetting and allocation of Disclosure Scotland cleared personnel to work on the construction of a new mezzanine structure within the “air-side” departure lounge of Newcastle Airport.

Works were conducted over a 10 week period with integral liaison with airport security, the client, design team members, M&E services, and airport customer services teams. This extended inclusion eliminated a large percentage of the potential areas for friction and inconvenience, whilst enabling us to draw on the knowledge of the in-house teams.

The delivery of this project required us to form a new structural steel frame in order to install a new mezzanine level, the substantial all-trade fit-out, all finishes and M&E services. Elements of off-site manufacture were also incorporated with the result of an accelerated on-site programme to meet the needs of the client.
