Heathrow Terminal 5 station is a shared railway and London Underground station serving London Heathrow Airport Terminal 5. The station serves as a terminus for the Heathrow Express services to Paddington in central London, and for Piccadilly line services towards Cockfosters. The station is staffed entirely by Heathrow Express staff, unlike the other underground stations serving Terminal 4 and Terminals 2 & 3.The London Underground section of the station is situated in Travelcard Zone 6; it is the westernmost below-ground station on the London Underground network.HistoryThe station was opened on 27 March 2008. It was designed by architects HOK International in conjunction with Rogers, Stirk, Harbour & Partners. Although situated underground, parts of the station's roofing are made of translucent ETFE laminate panels, allowing natural daylight to flood down both ends of all six platforms.
A cosy place to get away from the hectic surroundings of the International Departure Lounge (IDL) in Terminal 5 after security.We can be reached using the 'transit system' from the main terminal 5 building. We have a limited style menu serving hot and cold sandwiches but have a decent bar offer so you can chill out and watch airport life go by! You are but a 2 minute walk from any gate in Terminal 5B, so don't rush, come and join us for a Coffee,Craft Beer, snack or a good old pint of the 'Black Stuff!'

Compass Centre is an office building on the grounds of London Heathrow Airport in the London Borough of Hillingdon. The building serves as Heathrow Airport Limited's head office. Compass Centre previously served as a British Airways flight crew centre.HistoryThe Compass Centre was originally conceived as speculative offices for Lynton plc, which was the property development division of Heathrow Airport Ltd. British Airways was a prospective but not necessarily a sole tenant. The airline decided to consolidate its scattered operations into the Compass Centre. In August 1992 on-site construction began. The building was completed 15 months later. When London Heathrow Terminal 5 opened on 27 March 2008, British Airways staff, including crew check-in staff, relocated from the Compass Centre to Terminal 5. A refurbishment of the head office was completed in September 2009, after Heathrow Airport Limited (then BAA) moved into the building.Location and designThe Compass Centre was designed by Nicholas Grimshaw & Partners, which designed the core, external works, and shell of the building. Compass Centre is alongside but slightly askew from Heathrow's northern runway, with the Northern Perimeter Road, T5 Long Stay car park and Compass Centre car park between the runway and the Compass Centre. In 1995 Penny McGuire of The Architectural Review said that "Its shining glass and bright blue clad exterior reminds you, particularly when seen glowing at night, that one of the largest and busiest airports in the world is otherwise encumbered with a really grim collection of buildings. Decent ones are a rare sight around here." It was designed to house up to 800 British Airways employees. British Airways wanted a large, on-airport facility close to its operations, so it decided to use the Compass Centre.
