Replacement and upgrade of Cabin Emergency Evacuation Trainer for easyJet Luton Academy

Project Outline:

Due to the upgrade and change in their fleet of aircraft the client has a need to replace and upgrade its cabin emergency evacuate trainer (CEET) based in Luton. This is one of two such facilities that the client operates and NorWood Consultants Ltd are proud to have been involved with both.

NorWood Consultants Ltd were initially instructed to produce detailed CAD drawings to ensure that the existing CEET could be safely removed and that the new trainer could be installed.

Once a feasible method of works was established NorWood Consultants Ltd were approved to produce detailed designs of the mechanical, electrical and builders works requirements to both remove the old CEET and install/commission the new CEET.

Throughout the project Norwood Consultants Ltd were responsible for the following:-

  • Detailed design of the Mechanical and Electrical Building Engineering Services Infrastructure Systems.
  • Detailed design of the Builders works.
  • Internal and external Space planning for the room associated with the CEET.
  • Liaising with the contractors, CEET specialist and the Client.
  • Installation of time lapse cameras.
  • Weekly site inspections including Health & Safety.
  • Cost Control.

During the construction phase of the project Norwood Consultants Ltd were responsible for weekly inspections, review of the time lapse cameras, Witnessing of Testing & Commissioning and the review of Record Drawings and Operation & Maintenance Manuals.

Challenges & Benefits:

There were a number of key challenges to the project such as: –

  • The craneage of the 15 tonne CEET into the building (in two parts), within the constraints of the existing opening in the building façade.
  • A limited window of opportunity to undertake the works, coinciding with a break in the clients training schedule. Ensuring that the works were completed on time to allow training to resume on the scheduled date.
  • Creating space within the room to manoeuvre the CEET into place.
  • Dismantling the existing CEET, making the room ready for the new CEET, installing the new CEET and making the room good in 8 week timeframe. While also ensuring that the CEET specialist providers’ requirements were all met.
  • The key benefit is that the building was completed within the client’s timescales.
  • Maintaining a beneficial and close liaison with the European CEET provider.
