Case study - Bradford Insulation used in Brisbane Airport Terminal upgrade
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.
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.
Due to the specification requirements surrounding noise and energy efficiency, a suite of insulation products were required for the airport upgrade including:
- 2000 square metres of 50mm thick rigid glasswool batt with Thermoseal foil laminate bonded to the face and mechanically fixed to bondeck soffit;
- 3000 square metres of 50mm thick Bradford glasswool used in partition walls;
- 1200 square metres of 25mm thick Anticon fixed to slab soffit; and
- 500 square metres of Thermoseal Wall Wrap.
