Spie UK has been awarded a contract to decommission existing central battery units (CBUs), and supply, install and commission new emergency lighting central battery systems at Heathrow Airport’s Terminal 5.

 

The works, valued at about £2.2 million, will be completed at the end of October 2018.

 

Installation and commissioning works will be carried out during non-operational hours over a 23-week programme to avoid disruption, and will provide Heathrow Terminal 5 with 23 new emergency lighting CBUs across all three T5 terminal buildings. SPIE will be responsible for both decommissioning the existing CBUs and commissioning new emergency lighting CBUs.

 

Spie has been completing baggage upgrade works at Heathrow for over eight years.

 

In September 2017, Spie UK was awarded a building services contract to deliver upgrades at Terminal 3’s integrated baggage building (T3IB). The new improved facility means the baggage screening operations from terminals 1, 2, 3 and 4 can be integrated into one central space.

 

Darren Pitts, the development project manager from Heathrow Airport, said Spie was hired due to its “experience of delivering large electrical infrastructure schemes” within Heathrow.
