Working on behalf of Cable and Wireless, John Henry Group’s telecoms civils construction division, John Henry Comms and our specialist FTTx upgrade and fibre planning teams, John Henry Biscomm, were tasked with completing a £1m complicated directional drilling project in proximity of the main supply route to one of Britain’s busiest airports; London Heathrow.

An extremely challenging project, it involved a 200m directional drill and some major Traffic Management challenges to negotiate traffic flow into one of the UK’s busiest airports. Delays in the project could have meant planes flying from the UK without food on board, due to catering suppliers using the route to re-stock international outbound flights.

The project, which was planned to take about a month, was delivered ahead of time with glowing recommendations from the business park residents and the client.

As a trusted partner to major ISPs and telco organisations for three decades, John Henry Group is the first port of call for all-scale FTTx network solutions, maintenance, turn-key upgrage and growth projects.
