Project and cost consultant Faithful+Gould, which has an office in Bristol, is providing commercial services to Airbus plc across a number of construction projects associated with the innovative Airbus A380 and variants.
Faithful+Gould is involved with the site masterplan relating to the provision of new manufacturing and support facilities once full production of the A380 wings and landing gear commences at the Airbus plant in Filton, Bristol.
The Airbus A380 is the world’s only twin-deck, four-aisle airliner. Designed in close collaboration with major airlines, airport and airworthiness authorities, the A380 brings new standards of comfort and better economics in an aircraft that is more environmentally responsible. It will seat 555 passengers in a typical three-class interior layout and will enter airline service in 2006.
Faithful+Gould is part of the Atkins group of companies, and both have strong track records in the aviation industry. Chris Rogers, head of commercial services in Bristol, said: "The success of the A380 will have a significant impact on both the local economy and the UK's manufacturing industry over the next decade and at Faithful+Gould we are delighted to be involved in this challenging project. "We are working closely with colleagues in Atkins and with the Airbus team to ensure that we deliver the services required to contribute to the long-term success of Airbus A380."
