Case Study

Select completed the installation of the site offices at one of London Heathrow’s busiest terminals: T2a.

Select was instructed by the Laing O’Rourke and Ferrovial joint venture, HETCo, to design and build a six-storey modular building consisting of 311 units. Installation of the modules began in the middle of August 2010, with the final unit installed on site at the end of November 2010.

With a floor area in excess of 10,000m², the set-up contained four storeys of welfare facilities and three storeys of office space – all serviced by two passenger lifts and one goods lift. The welfare facilities also contained a fully serviced kitchen capable of serving 600 people in one sitting, as well as a Costa Coffee shop on the fifth floor.

All floors were fitted with mechanical and electrical elements, air conditioning systems, and all furniture and fittings. The units remained on site throughout the construction phase, which was successfully completed in 2013.
