The new design plan for a £5m fire station at Bristol Airport has been completed and handed over, signalling a number of upcoming developments for the destination.

Mechanical and electrical engineering consultancy McCann and Partners completed the MEP (mechanical, electrical and plumbing) design for the fire station, which will be located next to the runway.

There is an existing fire training ground and other upcoming developments will include an immigration hall and new airline building. Jeff Price, mechanical director at McCann and Partners, said: “Bristol Airport is going through such an exciting period of growth at the moment and we are delighted to have been involved in its expansion over the past few years.

“The airport team are continually investing in sustainable, low carbon systems and we’ve been working closely with them throughout 2018 to ensure that this building is extremely energy efficient.”

Andrew Goodenough, development director at Bristol Airport, said: “We are currently completing a variety of development projects at the airport to meet the growth in passenger numbers.

“Sustainability and energy efficiencies are key factors and decision drivers for all projects and it is great to work with a business like McCann and Partners, who share the same approach in promoting state-of-the-art technology and design in development.”
