PACIFIC Building played a key role in the massive £17million revamp of Glasgow International Airport ahead of the 2014 Commonwealth Games and Ryder Cup. The most striking features of the makeover are a new international arrivals area and World Duty Free extension.


Liaison with numerous partner agencies and stakeholders was key as Pacific drew on their vast experience of delivering to deadline and to budget and with minimal disruption to trade, the comfort of travellers and essential airport operations. The project was commenced towards the end of 2013 and was handed over to the clients in summer, 2014. In detail, Pacific completed the following projects:

  •  International Arrivals & West Service Yard – formation of new glazed entrance area, floor, wall and ceiling finishes, formation of new service yard and associated works.
  • Toilet Core refurbishment – strip-out of 12 existing toilet cores, supply and fitting of new floor wall and ceiling finishes, including new sanitary ware, IPS and cubicles.
  • World Duty Free – a new first-floor extension to accommodate the expanding tax and duty-free area.
  • WDF enabling works – formation of new storage areas to enable extension works to commence.
  • WDF fit-out – new floor wall and ceiling finishes, all works carried out over several phases. Take delivery, assemble and fit furniture/shelving.
  • Check-in tiling works – uplift and replace existing floor tiles to check-in area over several phases.


Pacific are proud to have delivered key parts of the multi-million-pound makeover that will see Glasgow live up to its reputation as a modern, welcoming, sophisticated city that has truly international aspirations.
