CASE STUDY | Aircraft Interiors

AIM Altitude is a world leader in aircraft interiors. The Auckland office provides the industrial design, engineering and project management for projects which are manufactured across multiple facilities in the United Kingdom and ultimately installed in aircraft all over the world.

THE PROBLEM

As their projects progressed, AIM Altitude recognised that they needed to temporarily bolster their engineering team if they were to meet tight project deadlines. They needed agile resource that could hit the ground running so as not to burden their already-busy design team.

THE SOLUTION
  • Caliber Design provided design engineers to meet the demands of AIM Altitude’s peak workload.
  • The fluidity of Caliber’s resource model allowed AIM Altitude to manage both budget and project timeframes through management of their resource requirements.
  • Caliber engineers we’re able to provide a fast and smooth transition between projects to ensure minimal set-back to the project.
THE RESULT
  • The extra design and drafting support expedited drawing package releases and gave their overseas manufacturing centres the best chance of meeting tight deadlines.
  • The feature panels project was commissioned on time, with the aircraft officially launched in January 2017. The backlit panels showcase Kuwait Airways new livery throughout the cabin, and form a key component of the airline’s re-branding.
  • For Virgin Atlantic, project Charlotte was a refurbishment of the Airbus A330 cabin interior. The project included the new look monuments between cabin sections and on bulkheads, magazine racks, and the new bar unit. The monuments and bar featured back-lit and illuminated panels. The magazine rack and bottle rack from the bar were also illuminated to maximise the visual impact.
