Thales Farnborough Air Show
Thales is a world leader in mission-critical information systems for defence and security, aerospace and transportation. The Farnborough Air Show provides Thales with a unique platform to showcase equipment and systems to their portfolio of high profile customers.
Thales wanted to provide their customers with first class hospitality, including a ‘four storey’ high view of the show, as well as a high end restaurant and dining area and high quality conference facilities. The structure also needed to incorporate offices, meeting and display areas and generally reflect their high tech, market leading position.
We constructed an impressive four storey 30mx25m structure which incorporated a showpiece roof terrace and hospitality area, which was decked and landscaped, providing the perfect vantage point for the entire show. The Space Building System™ also allowed for huge mesh, custom printed graphics to be easily attached to the external building frame, creating an amazing first impression and opportunity for profiling the Thales brand. The Space Building System™ enabled the internal fit out to be directly attached to the building frame, without the need for additional internal rigging, something which was important to the internal fit out team in creating a very high spec finish. The structure was also fitted out with twelve staircases, full air-conditioning, suspended ceiling and toilet facilities on each floor.
