BAA yesterday announced plans to expand Glasgow airport with a new two-storey £30M departure terminal to be known as 'skyhub'.
Work will begin on the 4,000m3 development in June and will take 18 months to comple. The project aims to reduce bottlenecks for passengers and provide more retail space.'Skyhub is the biggest single investment by BAA in Glasgow Airport for a generation,' said Glasgow Airport managing director Gordon Dewar.'We want to make the journey through Glasgow Airport as safe, smooth and enjoyable as we can for all our passengers, delivering better service not just for today, but for the next generation of travellers.'Balfour Beatty has been appointed as the main building contractor for skyhub. The project has been designed by REID Architecture.
