Ferrovial Agroman delivered the completed Terminal 1 Stands Package as part of the Kilo Apron development project at Heathrow Airport on 19 December 2018, two months ahead of schedule.
5 new stands comprising the project in the North-East area of Terminal were built between the newly reconstructed Bravo and Kilo Taxiways with the capacity for a variety of aircraft from the A318 to the A380.
Ferrovial Agroman first started working on the Kilo Apron Develop Project in 2015, supporting Heathrow in the concept stage of the T1 Stands. Careful planning was required to allow for the construction of the new infrastructure without disturbing normal airport operations—particularly baggage handling and air traffic control. This was carried simultaneously with the partial demolition of Terminal 1.
Ferrovial Agroman worked in partnership with several other participants for create a friendly team working environment. The T1 package was one of the foremost factors in Ferrovial Agroman winning National Site Award status in the Considerate Constructors Scheme and their winning the Heathrow Partnership Award in the “Improving Every Day” category.
After being construction in autumn of 2016, phase 1 began, with the goal of delivering the first two stands by Christmas 2017. The objective of phase 2 was construct and implement the three remaining stands.
The team started working on phase 2 in February 2018, and in the time after they achieved some of the highest standards in health, safety, and quality by incorporating numerous innovative and environmentally-friendly solutions such as solar floodlights towers, replacing vehicle with electric ones, and approaches to recycling demolition materials to create compliant subbase and concrete aggregates.
Only thanks to a greatly committed team deploying excellent skills, the key milestone has been achieved two months ahead of schedule. The whole T1 Stands team appreciates all the time, effort and collaboration from all parties that have made this a huge success.
This is an early Christmas present from Ferrovial Agroman to Heathrow. Collaboratively, the team has delivered these stands two months ahead of schedule providing Heathrow with extra and unexpected resilience for the busy festive season. I am very proud of every single member of this team, delivering these stands from concept stage and managing the most complex stakeholders in the airport.
To further support the progress of Heathrow, Ferrovial Agroman is fully committed to planning and carrying out works in other parts of the Kilo Apron Development.
