A strategy of collaboration between client team, designers and constructors was at the heart of the Airbus A380 wing manufacturing centre project. The principles of Prime Contracting were adopted to create an integrated team helping to ensure the project was completed to Airbus' exacting programme, whilst enabling the production design process to continue in parallel with the construction activities.

Located at Airbus UK's production centre in Broughton near Chester, we worked with an international team of production engineers to design a new facility to house the assembly and manufacturing process for the Airbus A380 super jumbo wings. Manufacturing such a large and sophisticated wing necessitated an immense building volume - 2.3 million cubic metres of space with a floor area equivalent to ten football pitches.
