There will be 60 new food, beverage and retail outlets across 167,000 square feet (!!!) of retail space. That’s enough to service 27 million annual passengers.
Connolly Scaffolding Managing Director, Wayne Connolly, says: “The selection process to find a scaffolding partner for this major project was very thorough and we are delighted that we were able to successfully demonstrate our ethos of providing scaffolding services on time, safely and within budget. We are extremely proud to be part of such a transformation of a facility that will greatly benefit the North West and will be used by millions of travellers from across the globe.”
