Manchester Airport

atg worked closely with Costain on this very high-profile project which comprised of a full category 3 runway upgrade, to enable the airport to meet its growing needs for the future.

The work involved a major upgrade of airfield infrastructure, plus an upgrade of existing services, including the transition to LED from halogen in order to remain FAA compliant. With meticulous planning, the airport was able to remain open 24 hours per day by using the second runway.
