Manchester airport £1 Billion transformation of Terminal 2 and associated buildings.

This prestigious large-scale project included the painting of the new Terminal 2 Building, New Pier & Link Building and Multi Storey Car Park. Working with our on- site Management team and up to 30 Painters our ‘Fast Track’ approach included 7 day working to meet the demands of the programme. 

Works included painting to Walls/ Soffits/ Bulkheads/ Woodwork & Metalworks and often working at height from Scaffold & MEWP access.

Mineral paints were applied to car park concrete walls areas in line with the detailed specification. Despite the challenges of low temperatures during the winter months, the team completed all required signage on time.

Specialist sealer was applied to floor areas where specified, with two pack epoxy floor coatings to circulation & plant areas.

Products were applied by Airless Spray, Brush and Roller.
