Waterman Aspen offer our clients unrivalled support from planning through to delivery of Aviation sector projects. We do this by providing high calibre professional staff on secondment to help cover peaks in workload and fill gaps where specialist services are required. Our ability to supply our own salaried staff makes us a unique business and a leader in our field.

The Aviation sector is going through unprecedented times, with challenges around climate change and the coronavirus pandemic to tackle – but it’s also an opportunity to do something different and look again at growth plans for the future. Our secondment model supports changing demands and workload as we can provide our people at short notice to bolster existing client teams.

Waterman has been involved in projects at over 30 airports both here in the UK and internationally over many years. We pride ourselves in being able to offer a range of services to clients which is testament to the skills and experience of our staff.

In addition to the services we provide to civilian airports and their supply chain, we also support the Ministry of Defence (MOD). We can draw upon the wide range of skills that our large pool of salaried staff can offer, some of whom benefit from having a military background.

Our Aviation team provides a wide range of secondment services covering the following areas:

  • Masterplanning and design
  • Construction and programme management
  • Airside and landside enhancements
  • Surface access improvements, including rail and road connections
  • Terminal expansion and reconfiguration
  • Resilience to environmental and sustainability challenges
  • Inspection and reporting
  • Security, including hostile vehicle mitigation
  • Specialist support e.g. baggage systems, acoustics and biometric testing facilities

Our airport client base continues to grow and in recent times has included Heathrow, Birmingham, London City and Bristol airports. We also successfully collaborate with many of the major consultancies and contractors to help deliver world leading infrastructure together in the sector.

Examples of Aviation sector projects that Waterman has been proud to support can be found below.
