Understanding and delivering what the client wanted that was key. This required pre-planning: making sure the team fully understood the contract and had read the Works Information as well as planning the logistics ahead of time and ensuring the site was sufficiently resourced to manage QA and sub-contractors. Once on site the team was very aware of the issues around working in an airport environment and ensured they had a robust programmes that ensured the job was carried out to meet the correct standards and timings.
