H+S Aviation Improve Cost Efficiency by Office Fit-Out in Current Premises


The Client

H+S Aviation is a leading independent repair and overhaul organisation for aviation engines and components. They are Europe’s largest overhaul and repair facility for engine accessories, processing 4500 units a year.

The aviation company approached Hi-Level directly to develop an office space solution for their head office in Portsmouth. They required a separate, easily accessible office within their existing production area for the on-site engineers.

The Challenge

To achieve this, Hi-Level would have to design, manufacture and install a bespoke mezzanine structure. Both the first and ground floor would become office space, but the space created underneath would also include a lockable storage area fitted with mesh partitioning and a connecting door.

The Criteria

The mezzanine requirements were as follows:

  • 29m² floor size
  • 3.5kN/m² live load
  • Fire protection
  • Ancillaries: General access staircase and 1.5m handrail

The fit-out aspect of the project included:

  • Glass partitioning
  • Mesh partitioning
  • LED lighting and power
  • Dry lining
  • Suspended tiles
  • Carpet tiles
  • Walltalker – writable, dry-erase wall

The Result

As with all Hi-Level fit-out projects, the design, manufacture, and installation process complied with all Construction Design and Management Regulations.

A Hi-Level Project Manager visited the site regularly to manage all of the health and safety issues attached to a fit-out project, monitor the project’s progress, and to ensure the result would meet H+S Aviation’s requirements.

The project was completed in around two weeks and within budget. The resulting structure provided H+S Aviation with a modern and practical office area, as well as a secure storage facility, to complement their production space.
