Quick Read

Eco UK Group is pleased to announce it was recently awarded a contract with both Millar Management Ltd and Orange Construction UK Ltd to collaborate on a project at the UK’s only Express Centre based at Heathrow Airport.

The Express Centre has been providing customers with the fastest and most cost-effective way to move goods in and out of the airport since 1983. Combining both manual and automated services, its expertise and purpose-built facility offers a heavyweight service. And works alongside some of the largest and most respected airlines in the world. The centre handles a staggering 60+ daily flights from across five continents, 45 countries and 85 airports. Managing a substantial 130,000kg of daily shipments.

The Brief

This project with Eco UK Group involved the relocation of the Express Centre to a neighbouring building at Heathrow Airport. Where extensive dilapidation works were completed to further enhance its business process efficiencies and delivery excellence mindset. This included the installation of a new mezzanine floor. And incorporation of several offices within the central office area. 

The Solution


Eco UK Group’s work also included the provision and installation of state-of-the-art wall mounted commercial air conditioning units. Reconfiguration of the existing ventilation and mechanical pipework services (HVAC), including the re-routing of ducting and ceiling diffusers within the new partition layout and the supply. And installation of new extract systems within the rest rooms.

Electrical Works

Eco UK Group engineers were responsible for the provision of power supplies to a vast amount of the facility areas and business critical equipment. Such as display screens, drivers’ kiosks, weigh scales, metal detectors and turnstiles, X-ray machines, a baggage conveyor system, caster deck and lifts and overdoor heaters. There was also a requirement for the supply and installation of 130 Category 6 twin data outlets. Including the installation of the associated cabling throughout the facility. These data points are located across the site in offices and rest rooms. And serve items such as the drivers’ kiosks, workstations, printer stations, display screens and a tea station. Eco UK Group’s in-house team supplied and installed the wiring, containment and data points for the CCTV system and the fitting and commission of additional fire alarms.

LED Lighting

Eco UK Group also installed energy efficient LEDS into the Express Centre to replace the existing inefficient fittings in order to deliver the desired lux levels throughout the facility. The Eco UK Group team is proud to offer an array of the most advanced and technically innovative LED energy efficient lighting fittings, emergency lighting conversion kits and PIR sensor technology. Which has previously surpassed customer expectations. 

It included the provision of both external LED linear lighting and replacement LED floodlights above the dock doors. Internally, the Ecolectrical team supplied and installed a selection of industrial and office smart lighting solutions. Such as LED high bay warehouse lighting, LED panel lights and LED linear batten light fittings. Most of the lighting is controlled via PIR sensor technology and local key switch control for the emergency lighting.
