Bombardier Aerospace advanced manufacturing facility, Belfast, UK

CASE STUDY

John Sisk & Son’s experience in the Aerospace sector includes our involvement in leading-edge composite wing manufacture and assembly facilities in Belfast for Bombardier, including low contamination areas.

To house the manufacture and assembly of the composite wings for Bombardier Aerospace’s new CSeries commercial aircraft, it was necessary to construct a purpose-built facility in Belfast. The new €111m, 600,000 sq ft wing manufacturing and assembly facility is located on Bombardier’s Airport Road West site and integrates into the existing building.

Sisk was uniquely positioned to provide the resources, and experience to deliver this facility to an extremely aggressive schedule. Demolition of some existing buildings was necessary to clear and level the site to achieve the appropriate building footprint, but our familiarity with large-scale construction and intimate knowledge of the supply chain ensured that both materials and labour were co-ordinated closely on site to meet Bombardier’s deadlines.
