Etihad Airways was established in July 2003 and has developed into one of the fastest growing airlines in the history of commercial aviation. As a company that employs over 25,000 people, they are fast approaching their expansion goal of becoming the world’s best airline.
Summertown were recently appointed to deliver the refurbishment of Etihad’s training centre. As a working live environment, the project required a precision led multi phased approach to ensure continuity of operations for the client. A key project requirement for Summertown was to maintain a 24 hour operational cycle to ensure a fast track delivery program across the three floors could be achieved.
Furthermore, an extension of a mezzanine floor within the Etihad Training Academy safety mockup area in order to provide additional space for simulator and training equipment for Etihad’s cabin crew had to be added.
The end result was a huge success – the tight delivery schedule of just 14 weeks was achieved within budget, and Summertown look forward to a continued working relationship with Etihad in the future.
