WHO WE RUN WATER FOR

BAA – HEATHROW
TERMINAL 5

THE BRIEF 

BAA was committed to constructing its ground-breaking Terminal 5 building in the most environmentally and socially responsible way. This entailed a far-reaching water strategy, including the abstraction of groundwater from boreholes, and the harvesting of rainwater.

THE RESULTS

BAA commissioned ADSM to undertake detailed monitoring in two existing toilet and washroom facilities at Heathrow Airport – in Terminal 1 and in Terminal 4 – in order to understand usage patterns and water consumption by visitors to the terminals. Based on our findings, we were able to provide the new airport terminal with electronic water controls that negated the problems we had recorded.

“As Terminal 5 is very much state-of-the-art, we wanted toensure that the design is both environmentally responsibleand sustainable. This extends right through to the most water-efficient devices and measures in our washroomsand toilet. With its recommendations, ADSM has helped us achieve this.”
