The summer period is the time when people take to the skies and get away to a sun-drenched beach for a few weeks for rest and recuperation. This was not the case for the atg airports Turnkey Solutions and Engineering teams. Behind the scenes and while the sunseekers at Heathrow, Manchester and London Luton taxied out and lined up for take-off our specialist teams were busy delivering projects, installing new taxiway lighting, taxiway guidance signs, and implementing runway incursion systems.
Historically the Engineering department resource has remained stable but due to an unprecedented demand for our SmartControl and Sonnis control systems the engineering department has increased resource and expanded to meet the current and future anticipated requirements. With on-going regular system upgrades at Heathrow airport as part of our recent renewal of the maintenance contract , the recent contract for lamp monitoring of the LED runway guard lights, and the commissioning of the new substations at Dublin Airport the department remains extremely busy and embraces the challenges that growth brings.
Turnkey lead on
Having secured multiple new projects recently the turnkey solutions team are ensuring delivery of our commitments while maintaining the quality expected from such an experienced organisation. With the southern team employed at London Heathrow, London Luton and RAF Brize Norton additional teams are preparing for Cardiff Airport approach project, Bristol signs project, and also the commencement of the Manchester Airport Transformation Program contract.
