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

We were instructed by Cofely on behalf of Virgin Atlantic to inspect the electrical installation within the administration and crew areas within Terminal 3 at Heathrow Airport. 

Our brief was simple, carry out all testing, be as invisible as possible and most importantly, everything must be working again in time for the first arriving passengers and crew, no exceptions.

This is an office environment handling all operations for ticketing and baggage for Virgin Atlantic at Heathrow. We were instructed to work outside of the office hours which differ from the usual 9-5 and informed that all Virgin ticketing desks were controlled from these offices. There were to be no power fluctuations of any kind whilst we were testing, (no pressure there then).

Circuit testing was performed on all circuits (except the ticket desks), general office lighting and power, resteraunt supplies and crew rest areas.

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.
