Yorkon completes £1m contract for first civilian airport on Anglesey, which it built off-site
Just four months after work began, Portakabin subsidiary Yorkon has completed a £1m contract to construct a new purpose designed air terminal for the first civilian airport on Anglesey.
The single storey building was designed by MAP Architects and manufactured off site before being craned into position as 10 steel framed modules in two days.
The terminal comprises of baggage reclaim, a departures lounge, check in desks, officers, visitors information and search and security facilities.
The project was managed by Turner & Townsend. Martin Cross, project manager with the firm says. “It was very important to have the new airport up and running as early as possible so flights between Cardiff and Anglesey could commence.
"By moving much of the work into a factory environment, we saved around two months on the programme compared to traditional site based methods, with no compromise on the quality of the finished building.
“The new commercial air service makes use of the existing runways, control towers and fire service facilities at RAF Valley."
