Jersey Airport

I would like to place on record my thanks for the professional manner in which you and your team dealt with the design, supply and installation of the Visual Control Unit at Jersey Airport. I was particularly impressed in the early stages of the design process with the level of detail provided which allowed us to design the new tower in the knowledge that the VCR would fit.

With any new building programmes do alter for one reason or another and you and your team adapted to suit these revisions. Once on site with all components to hand the complicated structural elements were assembled, hoisted into position and erected at the top of the tower, with amazing speed. This was quickly followed by the fiberglass roof canopy, the insertion of the special 16 panels of heated glass, and finally the raised floor. All of this was undertaken within the period allocated in your own construction programme.

I am sure there must have been numerous detail issues which you resolved during construction however as far as I am concerned this critical part of the contract went without a hitch.

Whilst we are still within the defects liability period I am confident the work carried out under your nominated sub contract agreement will prove to be satisfactory for this period and beyond. I would have no hesitation in recommending Alifabs to any other client or architect considering the design and construction of a new Visual Control Tower.”

NATS Services has been involved at Edinburgh, Newcastle, Farnborough and more recently Jersey New Control Tower Projects where the VCR cabin has been supplied by Alifabs. Given our role in the project, close liaison with the VCR cab supplier is essential to ensure ATC receive the professional environment they require to provide Air Traffic Control service. In our experience, Alifabs both understand this requirement and are willing to adapt their design to meet the individual needs of each customer.”

Harare International Airport, Zimbabwe

As part of the construction of the New Harare International Terminal Building in Zimbabwe, we were required to provide an Air Traffic Controllers Cabin.

After detailed discussions with possible sub-contractors we awarded our Sub-Contract for the Design, Fabrication and Installation of the Control Cabin to Alifabs Design and Construction Limited on the basis of their knowledge, presentation and budget.

Our assessment has been fully vindicated in that throughout Alifabs have produced the design details and completed the works on time and within budget in a friendly but professional manner.

Alifabs have a detailed knowledge of the requirements for Air Traffic Control Cabins and we have no hesitation in giving this testament, as we believe their abilities and resources would be an asset to any project.”

Now that the dust has settled following the successful hand over of the above project and the employer is now in the building, I would like to put on record my personal thanks for the manner in which you and your staff carried out your works with little or no problems to me only a good working relationship.

It is no mean task to complete a multimillion pound project of this kind which has been a one off for me. I know you are involved in many of this kind. It has involved us all in long working hours especially during the last few weeks.

Some of the credit is due to you in meeting all the intermediate target dates. This was touch and go at times. Credit it also due to your organisation in carrying out these works in a professional manner.

I do not know what my future holds yet but if I get involved in another Airport I would look forward to working with you again.”
