Morgan Est starts work at Edinburgh airport

Morgan Est has begun work to construct a new stand at Edinburgh Airport.

This latest contract, Stand 33, will provide a new 7,000m2 Pavement Quality Concrete Stand and Taxiway. It is a continuation of a portfolio of work carried out by Morgan Est, on behalf of customer BAA, over the last 18 months to improve the airport’s runway, taxiways and stands. Work on the contract will include excavations, drainage and the installation of aeronautical ground lighting systems.

David Graham, Morgan Est Contracts Manager, said: “We are delighted to have won another award to continue our work at Edinburgh Airport.

“We are nearing completion on the widening to Stands 1A and 1B and on schedule to complete as programmed, within budget and to the customer’s satisfaction.

“This latest contract win demonstrates BAA’s continuing trust in our company’s ability to deliver on time projects in operationally sensitive areas to the highest standard.”

Morgan Est operatives are currently working nightshft to rehabilitate the Echo taxiway, which is on schedule.

Construction of Stand 33 is due for completion in late October 2009.

BAA Edinburgh has recently completed a £16 million project to resurface the main runway at Edinburgh Airport, renewing the life of the runway for a further 15 years.
