Novar is supplying the life safety and building management systems for Heathrow Terminal 5. An artists impression of the new terminal.

In a contract worth up to ?42million, the package, claims Novar, will be of a scale never seen before in the UK. It comprises Novar?s Gent-brand fire detection, voice alarm and PA system, in tandem with its Trend building controls. The Gent package will incorporate around 30,000 detection points and up to 100,000 loudspeakers, which Novar claims will set a new size record. The company is totally responsible for the contract ? from management, through safety and quality issues, to engineering, installing and commissioning ? avoiding duplication of costs for the ?3.7billion Terminal.
