When RWS were asked recently to refurbish a warehouse for a client, we realised it would be one of the more obscure and complicated projects we have completed. Most refit projects involve removing and stripping out existing features and facilities. For this project a commercial passenger jet training facility needed to be removed prior to refurbishment.
Relocation of passenger jet training facility
In order to remove the training modules, RWS had to reconfigure the main rear elevation by dismantling the external rear cladding, roller shutter doors and supports. Once removed the building was reinstated to original base build to be handed back to the landlord.
Project work completed
Removal and Strip out
The warehouse incorporated a commercial passenger jet that was used for training purposes.
- The removal of the commercial jet was a complicated process and required
- Disassembly of the jet and associated equipment
- Use of specialist lifting equipment to allow lifting onto haulage
- Inclusion of specialist transportation to allow removal
- All works to be undertaken in accordance with the current Health and Safety Legislation
Project completion summary
- The building works were completed within the allocated time frame
- Once the plane was removed the refurbishment was completed to specification and budget
- The commercial jet was reinstalled and recommissioned
