Contract Value: £5m
Location: Heathrow

Project Scope:

Aluminium Curtain Wall

Opportunity:

Terminal 2, The Queen’s Terminal, is a landmark building in terms of energy efficiency. It’s the world’s first airport to obtain a ‘BREEAM Excellent’ rating. The installation, management, and access were encapsulated within NACWL‘s package; Lakesmere began discussions and planning with NACWL some 18 months before the first steps were taken on site. NACWL played a quintessential role in their tender process, whilst working closely together with Lakesmere’s design team.

Proposal:

NACWL assisted in all of the access requirements, including weight issues, specialist lifting gear, plant, and logistics. This included the H&S management and the unique conditions of working next to one of the busiest runways in the world. London Heathrow Airport opened its revivified Terminal 2 in June 2014, signaling the completion of an £11BN investment program inaugurated in 2003.

NACWL were employed under subcontract to Lakesmere Ltd, from the concept to completion, and were engaged to install the Schueco FW80+ bomb blast capped curtain wall to the feature “eyebrows” on the waveform roof.
