Heathrow Airport, Terminal 2
Terminal 2 represents a major step forward in sustainable airport terminal design
Pascall+Watson were engaged by Heathrow Airport to design and deliver the fit-out architecture for the internal environments at Terminal 2. Our computational modelling and analysis of passenger behaviours enabled us to create linear, intuitive routes providing maximum throughput efficiency. Our product design experts created a family of beacons and information delivery systems to further de-stress the travelling experience.
Our designs utilise many of the architectural concepts and systems developed by Pascall+Watson across the wider Heathrow campus, most notably at Terminal 5, to achieve a consistent branding and public face.
An important driver in the development of the design was the terminal’s sustainability performance. Key features include active solar control measures, boreholes and specialist fittings to reduce water consumption, photovoltaic panels, renewable energy sources and sophisticated automatic lighting controls. All of these considerations contribute to the building achieving a 40% reduction in its CO² emissions.
