Manchester Airport Tunnels
LED lighting upgrade for the A538 Manchester Airport Tunnels.
SPIE UK was awarded an LED lighting upgrade contract for the A538 Manchester Airport Tunnels, which serve runways 1 and 2.
This 20-week contract, worth in excess of £2.6 million, was part of a planned refurbishment scheme alongside Galliford Try Plc, the construction and regeneration group.
The A538 is a key road link providing access to Manchester Airport, the third busiest airport in the UK, therefore, a key challenge was to keep traffic disruption to a minimum. SPIE’s expert teams created a bespoke solution, undertaking the work in 24hr shift patterns within the planned programme of road closures.
Having teamed up once again with established LED lighting manufacturer Philips Lighting, SPIE installed state-of-the-are LED lighting technology. The energy-efficient, low maintenance, compliant and controllable tunnel lighting system is set to significantly reduce the energy consumption and running costs compared to the previous installation.
Manchester Airport particularly valued SPIE’s continuous commitment to Health & Safety and Quality as demonstrated on previous contracts. However, it is not only this, but SPIE’s highly-skilled workforce and expertise that has facilitated the development of this customer relationship.
