Aviation: Keeping your network moving | KITE Projects

Man walking in Terminal 5, Heathrow airport. KITE Projects - keping your network moving

January. It’s the month in the year when you may be looking at, or booking holidays for the summer. Will it be sunny Spain? A luxurious visit to the Maldives? Or will you take a trip to the fascinating country of France this year?

Wherever your chosen location, it is likely that you will travel through an airport to reach your destination. As you travel through the airport, do you even notice the handrails, tree pit covers, structural architecture & the other impressive, high quality engineered assets within the building?

Think of the number of engineers collaborating to design & build a vast network such as an airport. According to, it took 60,000 people to build Terminal 5 alone. That’s impressive! Collaborative engineering, a theme valued here at KITE, has been shared and displayed by those working together at Heathrow and airports across the world.

With 19.4 million passengers flying out of Heathrow in just one year, it is so important to maintain a safe airport environment to keep the network moving. Each and every asset needs to be maintained to a high standard to ensure a safe journey for each passenger.

Some of these assets include:

  • Guardrails and handrails – maintain segregation and protect people from vehicles.

  • Ramps – these are important in assisting the less able & parents with young children in pushchairs.

  • Tree pit covers – these are key in preventing trips & falls as passengers make their way through the airport.
