BAA has been given two coveted London in Bloom awards for its landscaping work at Heathrow Airport. The award was judged by a regional panel who looked at the approach roads to the airport in particular.
BAA realised that improving the appearance of the roads around the airport would enhance the airport experience for passengers and staff, and as a result invested in landscaping over the last year. Recognising the achievement of the project, the landscaping team decided to enter London in Bloom for the first time, being successful in the London Business Premises category. Terminal 5 also won an Outstanding Landscape Award for the surroundings of the new building.
Paul Green, landscape maintenance manager at Heathrow, said “We are thrilled to be given the prestigious London in Bloom award. This award shows how strongly we feel about improving the surroundings of Heathrow, and is a testament to the hard work of BAA staff and those of our contractors, Glendale, Hasmead and Connaught. Everyone who uses Heathrow will appreciate their efforts when they come to work, or drive in or out of the airport.
In December, BAA will also be presented with the BALI Award for the Heathrow environs.
