We're working together with Skyports on the future of urban air travel!
Barr Gazetas is working with Skyports to integrate cutting edge transportation facilities within existing and new buildings in London. Skyports operates vertiports – landing pads and facilities for cargo and passenger carrying drones, and we are part of the team creating a network of sites across the UK and beyond.
Our extensive experience in working with existing buildings and our wide portfolio of clients means we are ideally placed to vet suitable locations in which to install the infrastructure required for the future of urban mobility. The roll out will start with cargo drones, which are already in operation overseas, and then progress to passenger carrying vehicles in the very near future.
The challenge is to seamlessly incorporate vertiports into a variety of buildings, from West End historic blocks to suburban shopping centres, to create discreet, efficient, secure and environmentally friendly places.
Air taxis might feel like a futuristic invention, but they are well on the way. Skyports and Barr Gazetas are part of the evolution preparing London and the UK for this revolution in transport.
