The Southampton office of WYG is delighted to have been appointed to design the mechanical and electrical engineering services for a major investment programme by Associated British Ports (ABP) at its Queen Elizabeth II Terminal Building in the Port of Southampton.
The new scheme is the responsibility of the Port of Southampton’s Port Engineer’s Department and, under the appointed design team leader T S Design, will include an extensive refurbishment programme at the passenger terminal. This will provide additional passenger capacity which will be required when the Queen Mary 2, the world’s largest ever cruise liner, starts her regular sailings from the port in 2004.
The plans will include the construction of a brand new overhead gangway; increasing the baggage hall facilities; improvements to the embarkation lounge, allowing for twice as many check-in desks and the refurbishment of the waiting lounge.
Southampton based, WYG Director, Terry Wilson, says, “This is the second appointment received from ABP Southampton and is a further step in the consolidation of a first-class design service to local clients.”
