Building Conversion to Flight Training Centre, Crawley


Boeing Flight Services

Floor Area (sqm)

Value ($m)

Following the successful completion of Flight Training Centre developments in Crawley for Boeing Flight Services over many years etc Design were approached to provide Architectural services to fit out a recently constructed Warehouse to form a new Flight Training Centre.

Fitting a Flight Training Centre into an existing building posed a few issues that were resolved by the Design Team that resulted in a very successful project conclusion. This included the installation of a demountable acoustic mezzanine floor of over 1200 sq m to provide first floor Training Areas, Offices and Specialist Areas with Reception, Customer Offices and Café areas below. Finding space for the necessary plant to serve the facility was an issue as the Planning Authority would not accept anything too visibly intrusive. It was decided to install a large roof mounted plant platform with access via an extended staircase.

The remainder of the Facility provides space for 4 Full Flight Electric Simulators.

The project has been designed to achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating.

etc Design were appointed to provide a full Architectural Service, Principal Designer Role and also provided Structural and M & E Consultancy Services for the project.
