Background

THB was contracted to complete over 11,000m2 of surfacing and reconstruction works on Luton Airport’s mid-term car park, whilst the car park remained in operation (top right). This emergency package of works came about due to the unfortunate car park fire that happened in 2023.

The scope of work included;

  • Overlay existing surface with 40mm of AC10 Surface course, (approx. 7,250m2)
  • Excavate existing parking surface, reinstate with 140mm Type 1 Sub-base, Lay 60mm of AC20 and 40mm of AC10 surface course (approx. 2,500m2)
  • Plane existing carriageway and inlay with 60mm AC20 and 40mm AC10
  • Adjust all existing ironworks

The Outcome

Whilst providing some unique challenges which included continuous public car park movements, night time working and a deadline of two weeks completion, the THB team completed the work within the required parameters to the delight of the customer.
