2016: Construction Computing Awards -
Best Use of IT in a Construction Project 2016 - Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre
After the Ministry of Defence withdrew from the aerodrome, TAG Aviation proposed to use Farnborough for business aviation which required a change of use. The practice submitted the planning application and the approved proposals included provision for a new terminal building, changes to runways, taxiways and aprons, landscape remodelling and a new master plan, also allowing for the Farnborough Airshow to continue.
We carried out an environmental impact assessment to address the effects of works on the community in terms of noise, air quality and traffic. The works were situated within an area of considerable nature conservation sensitivity, so were designed to avoid wildlife features.
The restoration of heathland and wetland areas, along with careful design and management, has ensured habitat changes are beneficial in nature conservation terms.
