Correx Bins at Heathrow T2

GWP Correx solves check-in desk bin problem at Heathrow’s Terminal 2

When project managers at London’s Heathrow Terminal 2 struggled to find bins to fit new check-in desks, and with a high profile opening date just weeks away, they were delighted to discover that GWP Group could quickly solve their problem.

The one hundred and twenty-six new check-in desks are an unusual shape so standard off the shelf bins would not fit. With no time for a site visit, GWP Group designers worked from rough sketches and photographs and developed a prototype bin, made from Correx®, a plastic material more often used to make reusable packaging. Within three weeks, the bins were manufactured and supplied just in time for opening day.

Success of the Heathrow Correx® bins

Terminal 2’s Project Manager, Paul Wilson, said he was pleased with the end product and with the excellent service that he received from GWP Group.

It may have been a small problem in the scheme of a four-year multi-million pound re-development of the terminal, but sourcing of the check-in desk bins had turned into quite a headache. GWP really helped us out. They quickly came up with a simple but very effective solution. We’re very pleased with the outcome and we had quite a fun and successful team building hour putting them all together!

The bins, sited underneath the check-in desks, are used for waste ticket stubs and luggage tags that are discarded during passenger check in.

It’s nice to know that GWP have played a part in the successful launch of Heathrow’s new terminal. We enjoy a challenge and so were pleased to be able to help out
