Ferrovial Agroman establishes new record in Airport Civils

Category: General / 26 July 2013

On Friday 26th July 2013, Ferrovial Agroman set a record achievement for pavement laying at Heathrow Airport.

A non-stop pour of over 2,600 m3 of Pavement Quality Concrete (PQC) was carried out by the team, covering well over 850 linear meters and 5,200 msq with a paver (Gomaco 2800).

Heathrow's Stephen Livingstone, T2 Development Director and Julian Foster, Programme Director have both congratulated the teams on their record achievement and safe production.

Ferrovial Agroman was awarded the Terminal 2B Apron project in April 2012. The T2B Apron contract is the final piece of the jigsaw to complete Heathrow's Q5 investment in the Central Terminal Area.

David Fanjul, Head of Civils and Area Manager for Ferrovial Agroman, stated: "This is a fantastic accomplishment and even more so when considered together with the great safety record that has been achieved to date."

Ignacio Chicharro, Project Manager for the T2B Apron contract, said: "I know that to set up this successful milestone, a great effort from everybody in the team was required - including from our supply chain, Airside Operations, and our colleagues from Terminal 2A. I am really proud of being part of this team and have no doubts that we will be able to continue to complete this project safely and with great success".

The project includes the construction of twelve stands around T2B, eight served by an air-bridge (pier served) and four remote stands, two taxiways both 104m wide and to Code F standard and all associated services.

100,000 m3 of Pavement Quality (PQ) concrete will be used to cover a total area of 180,000 m2.
