A new business lounge was created within this airport lounge at London Gatwick North, containing a variety of workspace types for business users to choose from depending on their mood and needs.
This work formed part of a larger extension and refurbishment of the main lounge by InsideOut, originally completed in 2011.
The phasing of this build provided a complex challenge for us and the build team. InsideOut’s role extended beyond that of architects and contract administrators, acting as project managers co-ordinating client-direct contractors and master-planning the phasing of the works. Towards the end of the build, we had a daily site presence to ensure that any issues that contractors had were dealt with immediately and would not compromise the opening date.
The works were carried out in multiple phases to allow the lounge to remain open to passengers, which created a challenging sequence of works for the contractor and InsideOut.
“A creative and professional team always willing to go the extra mile to get things done.”
James Firmin, Project Manager No1 Lounges
