Mega Risers at Manchester Airport


As part of the 10-year Manchester Airport Transformation programme, Laing O’Rourke is delivering a £570m package of works which includes the design and construction of an extension to the existing Terminal 2 building. Once complete, the completed terminal will be 150% bigger than the existing Terminal 2 building.

In May 2018, just nine months into the programme, the first of the project’s three giant DFMA Mega Risers were installed on site.

Manufactured offsite at Crown House Technologies Manufacturing facility in Oldbury, the Mega Risers are made up of 48 multi service risers containing ventilation, ductwork, water piping, electrical containment and heating services.

Watch our time lapse video of the installation to learn more about the innovative engineering behind the solution.
