When Amaryllis was appointed as British Airways’ provider of furnishings and associated services for its global passenger lounges and staff accommodation in the UK, a major component of the brief was the development of a reuse and recycling programme.

The initial requirement was the development of a furniture solution for the new Terminal 5 building at Heathrow which would reflect the design brief but also meet stringent technical and environmental specifications and budget requirements. Amaryllis worked with British Airways to select products to meet these standards and suitable for ongoing refurbishment and repair to maximise lifecycle potential.

Amaryllis also developed a reuse strategy for surplus product as result of the new Terminal development. Redundant furniture was stored at Amaryllis’ central warehouse. Upon arrival, it was condition scored and photographed. Product images, together with condition status, were hosted on a joint web site allowing personnel to readily assess the availability of furniture for reuse. Amaryllis then worked with BA to ensure that assets were reused, wherever possible, on the BA Estate, or donated to various charities.
