The redevelopment of Terminal 2 is the latest stage in a £4 billion programme to upgrade, replace and refresh facilities within and around the terminal buildings; it started with the construction of Terminal 5, and then followed by Terminals 1 and 3. And then a new check-in area and forecourt at Terminal 4 created 6000m² of extra space.
Buildings for use in the commercial, retail and leisure sectors present a wide range of drywall design challenges due to their individual requirements for aesthetics, acoustic performance, fire performance and robustness. In addition to designing rooms and areas for specific purposes, consideration should also be given to the potential for future alterations to the use and layout of internal areas.
The larger the project the greater the advantage of involving Knauf Drywall Technical Services at an early stage. As well as providing comprehensive design guidance and support throughout the project’s duration, we can also ensure timed deliveries, specialist vehicles and other site specific requirements.
