Airside airport toilets make statement of quality

26 Mar 2016

The third phase of a major toilet refurbishment programme has been completed at the airport.

The new toilets and baby changing facilities, which are located airside convenient to retail and food outlets, cost close to half a million Pounds. The complete make-over lasted ten weeks.

There are six cubicles and six sinks installed in the female facility with four cubicles, six urinals and four sinks in the male toilets.  Also included is a WC and baby changing area. The work included replacing the entire ventilation system. 

Phase One involved the provision of toilets in International Arrivals followed by a similar project in the Domestic Arrivals hall.

The fourth phase will cover the refurbishment of toilets beside Fed & Watered. Work will get underway shortly and the intention is to have the facility open in time for the summer rush.

Belfast International Airport Projects and Safeguarding Supervisor, Joe McGuigan, said: “We were working to tight deadlines and all concerned put their shoulders to the wheel. The transformation is amazing with high-end materials very much in evidence.

“Overall, the reaction from our passengers has been very positive. They make a great statement of quality, and with hundreds of thousands more passengers expected through the Terminal with expanded airline operations, the timing couldn’t be better.”

The main contractor was Piperhill Construction Ltd working alongside AM Electrical and Hanley Heating. The architect was McGongleMcGrath.
