It’s Britain’s biggest infrastructure project, with the potential to transform the area’s economic prospects.

Heathrow’s Runway Three will cost £14bn over almost a decade, creating an estimated 77,000 local jobs – and acoustic glazing experts Newview Homes have just signed the deal that will see them play a critical part in carrying it out.

Already long-standing Heathrow collaborators, Newview have installed thousands of acoustic windows for nearby homeowners as part of the airport’s ongoing noise attenuation scheme.

Now, that scheme will be massively expanded, with the Airport expected to spend £660m on noise attenuation over the next 15 years (equivalent to 10% of the total UK glazing market).

It’s Newview that will deliver a large proportion of that work – a task that MD Michele Wietscher relishes.

“We love working with Heathrow, because it means constantly challenging ourselves to up our game.

“Over the last fifteen years, we’ve built ourselves into one of the country’s leading acoustic glazing installers, working with major construction companies, housing developers, and, of course, airports.

“But Heathrow are one of the most rigorous, quality-focused organisations we’ve ever come across. On everything from recycling and sustainability to procurement and corporate social responsibility, they’re relentless in their pursuit of excellence – and that means we have to be too.

“To be selected for contracts like these, we have to demonstrate an outstanding service across the board – exemplary supply chain management, superb product quality, highly responsive account management, and, particularly in this case, an unshakable commitment to sustainability.

“Heathrow are incredibly driven when it comes to minimising their environmental impact, and one of the key reasons we won the contract is because we are too.

“All the vehicles in our fleet have now been equipped with emissions trackers, for example, we’ve invested heavily in waste reduction, and any profits that our recycling efforts generate are used to plant trees with the Sussex Wildlife Trust. Over the next year, we’ll be switching all our vans for hybrid vehicles, too.

“We’re delighted to be working with Heathrow again – and to be part of one of the most ambitious undertakings that the country’s seen this century.”
