Gatwick ITTS Civil Engineering



Location: Gatwick Airport

Client: BAA

Scope:Bearing Replacement

One of Hevilifts most prominent projects has been the upgrade of the Transit System between Gatwick North and Gatwick South Terminals. Following a full site survey of all 628 bearings, a new design was issued targeting the replacement of all major bearings. Evaluating the temporary works design in house, Hevilifts proposed a synchronised jacking system and methodical replacement of all 628 bearings that was included in the BAA brief.

As a critical piece of infrastructure, the professional approach to safety employed by Hevilifts allowed the BAA Transit System to continue operations during the upgrade process.
