A World-class Project

London Heathrow Airport Terminal 2B is one of the largest privately funded construction projects in the UK. WSP's biggest challenge was to respect stringent regulations and standards developed over many years by the client, to meet resilience, security and maintenance requirements while providing a best-in-class passenger experience.
 
Using Technology to Enable Sustainability. We delivered the complete building services, integrated control systems (ICS) designs, BIM and project management services within a complex, multiple-stakeholder project. Many design and construction ideas were tested, assessing technical and programme advantages, and using on-screen ‘walk-through’.

Award-winning Project

This project was recognised for its excellence in sustainable construction, design and innovation by winning the Green Apple Awards 2012 for sustainability.
 
The use of BIM provided clarity and true collaboration, facilitating early decision making to realise significant time and cost savings. “We see BIM as a key enabler for improvements and we are delighted to support the team,” said Julian Foster, Terminal 2B Programme Director, Heathrow Airport Ltd.
 
We achieved enhanced safety and quality by reducing site activity in favour of extensive off-site manufacturing.
 
Our future-ready designs are compatible with changing technology and the constant evolution of air travel.
