Fri, 18 Feb, 2011
A refurbishment project at Manchester Airport has been completed.
The eight-month scheme undertaken by Rooftop Solutions saw the facility's World Freight Terminal overhauled at a cost of £1.5 million.
External renovations have seen the original building's "iconic" red and white paint scheme replaced with a grey over-cladding, bringing it in line with the airport's other terminals.
Jerry smith, property manager for MAG Developments, revealed how impressed he was with the "dynamic approach" taken by Rooftop solutions.
"We are delighted with the quality of the finished work – it will ensure that we can continue to meet the needs of our own customers by providing quality accommodation and exceptional customer service," he said.
Insulation, roof lighting and piping in the World Freight Terminal building was also improved as part of the renovations.
Earlier in the month, the Silky Soles foot spa company opened a station in Manchester Airport's Terminal 2, enabling passengers to undergo a pedicure before they board flights.
