Pascall+Watson led and co-ordinated the scheme and production design of Heathrow Airport Terminal 2’s fit-out architecture, structures, services and information control systems both conceptually and in detail, to align the original concept, operational briefing requirements and Heathrow’s design vision.
Site-based teams created a series of spectacular transitional and dwell spaces that flow seamlessly together and enable intuitive passenger wayfinding. The design utilises many of the architectural elements and systems developed by Pascall+Watson across the Heathrow campus, most notably at Terminal 5, to reinforce the airport’s unique brand identity.
The project includes a welcoming and efficient check-in facility, a world class retail offering, contact stands, coaching gate facilities, a multi-storey car park and a dedicated energy centre.
Critical to the success of the Terminal 2 design are its sustainability credentials. 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.
