Nationwide Hazardous Management

Cardiff Airport

Originally built in 1942, Cardiff Airport is the busiest airport in Wales and has been under the ownership of the Welsh Government since March 2013. Passenger numbers are in excess of 1.5m per year.

As part of a £100m development strategy to extend the terminal and upgrade the main body of the building, AA Woods were instructed by Cardiff International Airport Ltd to remove sprayed asbestos residues to walls, columns, beams and ceiling slab using abrasive shot blasting techniques to the ceiling voids within the first floor customer areas.
Given that the work areas were in close proximity to the public lounge areas and customer check-in, we were responsible for the design and installation of a purpose built tunnel that was erected beneath our enclosure to assist with the re-route of passengers during these necessary works.

We installed bespoke scaffold platforms for access into the enclosure and built a separate scaffold platform designed to enable the transfer of waste from the terminal building without having to cross public areas.

Due to noise limits the majority of the shot blasting was undertaken out of hours.
