Contractors working on a huge new concrete deck at London City Airport have used innovative concrete strength prediction technology to help them streamline workflows.

Compared to the west London mammoth at Heathrow, London City Airport is small and nimble, with the fastest passengers able to get from desks at the capital’s financial hub to runway in under an hour.Its popularity has triggered plans to increase the number of passengers it can accommodate by 2M per year. And to do that, it needs more infrastructure.

Bam Nuttall is delivering an £85M, 75,000m2 concrete deck extension over the King George V Dock in east London as part of the airport’s £480M development programme. The extension will house aircraft stands, a taxiway and a terminal extension.
