The new installation works and commissioning will be carried out during non-operational hours over a 23-week programme to avoid disruption, and will provide Heathrow Terminal 5 with 23 new emergency lighting CBUs across all three T5 terminal buildings. Dalkia will be responsible for both decommissioning existing CBUs and commissioning new emergency lighting CBUs.
Dalkia has been successfully completing baggage upgrade works at Heathrow Airport for over eight years. This contract win was a result of Dalkia’s high quality work and considerable experience in delivering contracts across the Heathrow Campus. In September 2017, Dalkia was awarded a building services contract to deliver upgrades at Heathrow Airport’s, Terminal 3 Integrated Baggage Building (T3IB). The new improved facility means the baggage screening operations from Terminals 1, 2, 3 and 4 can be integrated into one central space.
When we set out to find a contractor for the Terminal 5 CBU installation, we were looking for a company with experience of delivering large electrical infrastructure schemes within Heathrow. Dalkia with their previous experience during the original T5 build fit those requirements perfectly.

The team here is looking forward to demonstrating our ongoing commitment to the needs of our customers in the important aviation space.”
Darren Pitts, the Development Project Manager from Heathrow Airport Limited, added: “When we set out to find a contractor for the Terminal 5 CBU installation, we were looking for a company with experience of delivering large electrical infrastructure schemes within Heathrow. Dalkia with their previous experience during the original T5 build fit those requirements perfectly. Their knowledge of Electrical systems and in delivering works across the Heathrow campus means we are confident that they will deliver an excellent result on time.”
