Alpha Flight Services is an award-winning in-flight catering company with operations throughout Australia, Europe, the United States, and the Middle East.

The company provides catering for many well-known airlines, including Emirates, Etihad, Garuda and Virgin.

Several projects

Woolacotts Consulting Engineers was engaged by Total Construction on behalf of Alpha Flight Services to provide consulting engineering services for several projects around Australia.

Two of these projects included extensions to existing catering facilities at Brisbane and Perth airports.

Our scope

Woolacotts undertook the design and documentation of the structural and civil engineering portions of the projects and our local engineers provided services during construction including site inspections.

The facilities contain:

Freezer rooms for snap freezing

Secure rooms for duty free

Rooms for packaging meals

Bays for specialist catering trucks

Continued operations

As open and fully functioning facilities, the continued operations of the Perth and Brisbane branches were critical throughout the projects.

Other catering projects

Woolacotts has completed numerous flight catering projects including:

Qantas Flight Catering

Numerous refurbishments and alterations to the Sydney Qantas Flight Catering centre over a 30 year period, including strengthening loading docks to support A380 compatible catering trucks and reconfiguration of cool rooms, as well as alterations and additions to Riverside Catering Facility in Mascot.
