Terminal accommodating chamber
The structural frame uses a composite design with steelwork supporting steel metal decking and a 150mm-deep concrete floor topping.
The building’s 457UC perimeter columns are spaced at 6m centres and the overall dimensions of the structure are 60m-long x 18m wide.
“A steel portal design was the preferred method because of the project’s location and for the speed of construction.” Border Steelwork Structures has been employed as the design and build contractor for the building, as well as the flooring, roofing and cladding installer.
Highlighting the speed and ease of the steel construction process, the entire frame was erected in less than two weeks and all of the beams and columns were transported to site from Border’s fabrication yard in Annan in just two truckloads.
The Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) has provided the investment, which is being used to improve the runway and build a new terminal building.
The work has also proven to be the catalyst for the Stobart Group, which owns and operates Carlisle Lake District Airport, to announce that it plans to begin commercial flights to London Southend Airport, Belfast and Dublin from 4 June.
The majority of the internal steelwork will be left exposed along with soffits and services – positioned below the first-floor slab - giving the facility an industrial look.
“We will then be able to attract more visitors to Cumbria and the surrounding area and support the local economy through the development of a sustainable airport.” Carlisle Airport began life in 1941 as RAF Crosby-on-Eden, a base used to provide day training for Hawker Hurricane pilots.
Cumbrian airport takes off Carlisle Lake District Airport has received significant investment to build a new steel-framed terminal building, which will allow the facility to begin commercial flights this summer.
Recognised as the gateway to the Lake District and southern Scotland, Carlisle has received a £4.95M boost to its connectivity as the city’s airport gets a significant upgrade.
