Case Study: Luton Dart

Client: Prater Ltd

Location: Luton Airport

Finish: Interpon D2525 Gondar YW106I

Paint Manufacturer: Akzo Nobel

Size: 12,250 square metres

The Dart, opened in 2023, is a transportation system that connects Luton airport to the railway station and was constructed by Volker Fitzpatrick and Kier Group in a joint venture.

The internal roof constructed by Prater Ltd is essentially six pods, set like upside-down umbrellas and clad in bespoke panels that were put together like a jigsaw.

Tomburn’s Commercial Director Chris Mansfield commented “The project required over 10,000 square metres of materials to be coated in a gold metallic, which is a notoriously difficult product to apply consistently. But having looked at the photographs and visited the site myself, the consistency that the team achieved is absolutely astonishing.”
