Business aviation services provider Gama Aviation is planning to build an operations and maintenance facility at Aberdeen International airport, as part of a strategic investment in its thriving Scotland-based business.
We have been contracted by Bancon Construction to carry out roofing and cladding works on the new facility. This is our first contract with the Banchory based firm and we are delighted to be working with them.
GAMA has been active in Scotland for more than two decades, from where it has been supporting its business jet customers and the country’s health provider, out of two bases in Glasgow and one in Aberdeen.
Strengthened presence in Scotland…
The new site, which Gama said at the time was a “logical yet important step” in strengthening its presence in Scotland, will also support an aircraft under contract to the Scottish Ambulance Service until 2020.
Managing Director of Curtis Moore, Andrew Devlin, said, “we are delighted to be working with Gama Aviation once again on their newest facility in Aberdeen as part of their strategic expansion throughout Scotland.”
The facility will cover more than 1700m2 and include hanger space as well as extensive offices on two floors. Curtis Moore has been tasked with the roofing and cladding of the new hanger which includes a combination of pre-curved & self-curving Kalzip roofing systems & Kingspan composite wall cladding. CM work on the project is expected to take approx. 12 weeks.
Gama Aviation intends to use the new facility to provide support services for not only the Scottish Ambulance Service and the larger Gama managed fleet but also to other business jet operators with missions in the north of Scotland.
Work is underway and the project is expected to be complete before the end of 2016.
