British Airways and Waterside

There are persistent rumours that Waterside, the home of British Airways since 1998 (and in more recent times the London offices of IAG), is to mothballed, or at least mainly closed down.

The glass-fronted structure is set in 240 acres of landscaped grassland and waterways, the six four-storey buildings connected by a 175m long ‘street’ is supposed to encourage ‘social interaction and informal meeting’ amongst staff.

From a practical point of view many staff already work from home and room could easily be found for operational team members, and their managers, such as aircrew, in Terminal 5.

In times gone by BA executive offices were within the engineering base at the eastern extremity of the airport.  Waterside was planned to put the whole of the airline’s management into one building as a big cost saving.  It is also due for demolition as part of the third runway project.

No response from BA management.
