Bradford Insulation used in Brisbane Airport Terminal upgrade

CSR Bradford products were used in Brisbane International Airport Terminal’s upgrade, helping to deliver an energy efficient & acoustically sound expansion.

Project Overview

The $340million Brisbane Airport Corporation development was undertaken by Bovis Lend Lease. The project comprised a 60 metre extension to the main terminal building, and a 225 metre addition to the northern concourse, plus the refurbishment of several sections of the existing airport structure. The project, which has put Brisbane airport in to the top 100 globally, commenced in January 2007 and was completed in December 2008.

About four million passengers used Brisbane Airport’s International Terminal in 2007 and this is anticipated to rise to around six million by 2015. A crucial aspect of the Brisbane International Airport Terminal upgrade was the development of modern facilities to accommodate new generation aircraft, including the new airbus A380.
