[FIRST LOOK] Norman Foster and HETCo designed Terminal 2 will support 20 million passengers per year

BAA have released new images of the proposed £1 billion Terminal 2 at Heathrow, formerly known as Heathrow East. The glass-fronted terminal will become the new home for Star Alliance airlines for an estimated 20 million passengers every year. The original scheme design for a new terminal at London’s largest airport by Foster + Partners has been developed by Ferrovial Agroman and Laing O’Rourke’s joint partnership company HETCo.

BAA claims that the new building is designed to produce 40 per cent less carbon than the existing buildings using large north-facing windows in the roof to flood the building with natural light without generating uncomfortable levels of heat in the building. Solar panels on the roof will further reduce the dependency on energy supplies. Additionally a new energy centre, partially fuelled by renewable resources, will provide heating and cooling for the building.

The new terminal will provide 185,000m² of floor space on the site of the existing Terminal 2 and Queen’s Building, both buildings will be demolished later this year. Construction is taking place in two phases, the first of which is due for completion in 2013. The development of Heathrow’s Terminal 2 is part of a £4.8 billion investment across the airport.
