Terminal 5 - 6 Hours 53 Minutes to Go...

I can't believe that after all this time, when I wake up tomorrow it will be officially an open, live terminal.

Blows my mind actually when I think how far its come.

As they say "One day you'll be proud to say you built terminal 5"

My Step Brother's been on that for some years now, and I know he's immensely proud of it

What does he do tommo?

I must say i feel a tad bit of pride at both the job and myself. I came down here as a boy and I have came out of it a man. Its been brilliant. And it truly looks magnificent. Breathtaking!

Nothing sharp about that really...

Can't do anything if it breaks the law. Its against the Data Protection act. You wouldn't want the police having your fingerprints on file would you? They could get that from BAA!

A hitch will be if the baggage system fails! [:D]

Not sure. I assume he works for BAA, but don't speak to him much these days

That one they built in China for the Beijing Olympics was a bit more impressive mind.

Didn't take as long either.

It's an achievment that it was on time I suppose considering it was built in Britain.

And IN BUDGET Towell.

Lot of that is to do with the contract used and the T5 Agreement.. Won't bore you though.

PinkPonce Posted on 26/03/2008 21:04

No, i managed the cost.

Therefore, to bring this project - and my packages in ON TIME and IN BUDGET is an achievement I should be proud of.

On the other hand, I might have went to wembley - and look what happened there!!

Ponce with my LAbour Managing skills and your lucky cost guessing we could set up a company and take over the world I reckon.

Except we'd have to employ blind 1 armed lepers who we have no money to pay for as the male groomoing product budgeting was a bit suspect.
