We were tasked with the manufacture and installation of a number of transit areas for embarking and disembarking passengers at Heathrow Airport.
Working ‘airside’ at any airport is a complex and challenging task, with deliveries and lifting times severely restricted. So, it was imperative that these buildings were installed without causing any disruption to the 24-hour operation of the airport.
Prefabricated and clad off-site in our factory in Henstridge, the coaching stations were delivered and installed during a 4-hour night window.
The buildings were finished externally with a combination of glazing and a composite panel, and were linked into the existing terminal structure. As part of the integration with the existing terminal, we carried out some refurbishment to the stair areas, which included the installation of a new lift shaft, using our ‘Lift in a Day’ product.
