Aviation | Lakesmere
Proud winner of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise 2015


Market Overview

With an enviable reputation for delivering challenging contracts in even more challenging environments, Lakesmere continues to fly high in the aviation sector. The company has drawn on the skills and experiences gained from working on a number of different transport and infrastructure schemes to secure several high-profile aviation contracts including the creation of new terminals, air traffic control centres as well as multi-storey airport car parks.

Construction activity in this area continues to soar, with the privately funded aviation sector largely unaffected by the Government’s spending cuts but remaining a key contributor to the UK’s economy and labour market. In addition to the development of new airports and supporting buildings, the increase in both air passengers and freight and the move towards larger capacity aircraft has also led to the need for many existing facilities to be refurbished and adapted.
