Heathrow Airport Tunnel Upgrade

We are proud to be supplying skilled professional labour to the world’s busiest international airport – Heathrow. With over 67 million passengers each year travelling to over 90 countries and we take our responsibility for the security vetting of our operatives working at the airport very seriously. As a result of this, Reliable Contractors are authorised to undertake blue pass security clearance for both airside and landside works at Heathrow Airport. One of our most recent engagements has included the supply at quality civils labour to BAM Nuttall for the upgrade of two of Heathrow’s main assets, the main road tunnel and the cargo tunnel. This complex work was undertaken on a 24 hour basis needing nightly tunnel closures. Works included refurbishment of the following systems: tunnel ventilation, fixed fire suppression, fire protection and reflective coatings, fire detection and alarm system, emergency telephones, CCTV and automatic incident detection system, lighting, electrical, domestic water mains, fire mains and fire hydrants, drainage and road surfacing. This project was a great success due to the true collaboration between all the parties from the very start. The excellent planning work by all teams involved ensured that all necessary works were completed without any disruption to the normal operation of the UKs busiest airport. Awards Heathrow Supplier Award 2015 – Working together BAM Nuttall were awarded the Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) 2016 GOLD award for the Heathrow Tunnels refurbishment project in recognition of great teamwork
