PACIFIC Building’s unique qualities have been recognised by the managing director of Glasgow International Airport, Amanda McMillan.
She has also praised the working relationship enjoyed by the airport and the company, and she welcomed the fact that this will be extended into the future with the securing of Tier 2 Framework Supplier status by Pacific
Ms McMillan (left) highlighted the fit-out and construction firm’s ability to deliver projects in “live” public areas – landside and airside – with minimal disruption to airport operations and to trade.
These have included construction and fit-out projects of various sizes in passenger-handling areas and retail spaces.
The airport chief said: “Glasgow Airport has developed a strong business relationship with Pacific Building over the years. Our teams work together on a variety of construction projects, both landside and airside.
“What is important to us is that Pacific understand the security requirements and protocols which are essential for our business. In addition, Pacific work with us to ensure there is minimal disruption to the passenger experience.”
The firm’s relationship with the airport – which dates back many years for some of the company’s staff – is enhanced by the fact that many of their team hold “airside passes”, which means they have the experience and requisite clearance to work in airside, landside and aircraft-manoeuvring areas.
Furthermore, Pacific have an office adjacent to the perimeter at Glasgow Airport.
Ms McMillan added: “The fact the company have offices in close proximity to the airport means they can have personnel on hand to work on jobs at short notice.
“We are pleased Pacific have secured Tier 2 Framework Supplier status, which will extend this partnership for a further three years.”
Pacific’s impressive portfolio of completed projects at Glasgow International Airport include World Duty Free, Victoria’s Secret, the Upperdeck executive lounge, Discover Glasgow, public washrooms and large-scale refurbishment of the International Arrivals Hall and check-in areas.
Pacific Managing Director Brian Gallacher welcomed the support of the airport, saying: “One of the keystones of our business is our company’s relationship with Glasgow International Airport.
“We have been working with them since our inception and, in that time, we have built up a successful working partnership that has borne fruit for both parties.
“We are proud to serve one of Scotland’s flagship commercial enterprises which, for many visitors to the country, provides a lasting first impression of the nation and the city.
“Our work speaks for itself – many projects, large and small, successfully delivered on time and on budget to a satisfied client. We look forward to many more years of association with Glasgow International Airport.”
