Significant progress has been made on the construction and fit out of AIM Altitude’s new facilities at Bournemouth Airport.
Aeriel photographs show the level of progress that has been made to the exterior build. The factory is watertight, with the roof and cladding having been finished some time ago. Inside, the factory floors have now been laid, as have the utilities and drainage.
Dave Poole, HS&E and Facilities Manager at AIM Cabin Interiors, said: “It is very exciting to see the building works all coming together so quickly now. Consolidating all our Cabin Interiors teams under one roof in purpose-built facilities is a huge step forward for the company.
The new 168,000 square-foot facility is a significant investment by AIM Altitude and will also provide 30% additional capacity for the design, engineering and manufacture of aircraft cabin interiors, helping the company meet the growing demand for premium bars and monuments. Testing capabilities will also be expanded to support increasing market and regulatory requirements.
A dedicated Customer Zone will also be created for existing and prospective customers to view full-size interior mock-ups and develop the customised specifications vital for delivering differentiation in today’s premium cabin areas.
AIM Altitude’s new facility is due to be fully operational by late 2016
