Swindon company helps build Heathrow 

Edmont play major part in new Terminal 5
The new terminal 5 at Heathrow opened today - and one Swindon company has played a huge part.
Local construction specialists Edmont was responsible for a number of key shopfitting projects in what is the biggest freestanding structure in the UK.

Now open for business:
the new Heathrow Terminal 5, which local company
Edmont played its part in constructing
With years of experience working alongside BAA and World Duty Free, Edmont were brought in as one of a few UK companies with the systems in place to undertake such a project.
The scheme was managed from Swindon with a small office site at Heathrow - and had a contract value in excess of 5 million.
And the company's Joinery Director, Robbie Nottage, was overwhelmed when their work was admired by the Queen, at an official opening ceremony on 14 March.
He said: "I was thrilled to be invited; it was a great day at the end of a brilliant job for Edmont."

Edmont's Managing Director, Peter Jenkinson, said: "We take great pride in this continuing relationship with our airport clients whom we have fostered for over 15 years.
"This is only one of the areas in which Edmont operate and it compliments our work for major high street names, local companies, organisations and private individuals."

Edmont's contribution to Terminal 5 is another milestone in a busy year that also included major work at St. Pancras station in London.
