Electrical Installation Condition Reporting: Virgin Clubhouse, Terminal 3, Heathrow.

We were instructed by Cofely on behalf of Virgin Atlantic to inspect the electrical installation within the prestigious Clubhouse lounge at Heathrow Airport.

Our brief was simple, carry out all testing, be as invisible as possible, make sure that no passengers are inconvenienced at any time and most importantly, everything must be working again in time for the first arriving passengers, no exceptions.

This is a world class airport lounge area and the airline is rightly very protective and careful about who they let loose on the infrastructure. We were required to fit our working hours around the lounge opening times which involved being on site (airside) for 9pm and leaving the site spotlessly clean with all systems checked and operational by 04:30 each morning. No issues were reported by the lounge staff who expect and ensure that very high standards are always maintained.

Circuit testing was performed on all circuits including kitchen, bar, Sky lounge showers, saunas, spa, lounge areas, plant equipment on the roof and back of house.

Where possible detailed testing of every circuit was completed and the client was provided with both PDF and bound copies of the test results.

Obviously security clearance was required for our staff to work within this area. This was obtained with little or no difficulty due to the stringent employment checks L&C already has in place.
