CBC Greendale flying high at Bournemouth Airport refurb

4 November 2019

The XLR Lounge project took 15 weeks

A Dorset-based Chartered Building Company (CBC) has successfully completed a substantial refurbishment at Bournemouth Airport.

Greendale Construction’s  small works division transformed the former Bournemouth Flying Club bar and cafe into an XLR Executive Jet Terminal for Regional City Airports, a subsidiary of The Rigby Group.

Previously vacant for three years, the ex-flying clubhouse dates back from the second world war and is situated within the airport boundary. 

During the 15-week project, Greendale carried out a complete internal refurbishment, minor mechanical and electrical works and external repairs/works.

External works included brickwork repairs, new lintels and rendering, as well as new front doors, portal and cladding. Internal works included a full strip-out and a full new electrical and mechanical installation.

The team also installed new walls, ceiling, doors, shower room and bathrooms, as well as a kitchen, refreshment station and bespoke reception desk.

A full groundworks package was delivered to provide a more visually pleasing landscaped area along with new car park and external lighting.

The XLR Lounge will now process all private jet customers and provide pilots and aircrew with refreshment and conference room facilities.
