Following the Welsh Government’s purchase of the airport in 2013, it has seen significant development of the buildings and facilities. Environtec are working in partnership with the airport to facilitate these changes.


Project: Cardiff International Airport Development

Client: Cardiff International Development Authority

Sector: Transport

Location: Wales

Duration: 2 Years

Project Value: £250K


The development of the main terminal building at Cardiff International Airport (CIA) has offered some major challenges due to the nature and location of asbestos containing materials in areas which required re-development.

Our responsibility within the project was to conduct a Refurbishment / Demolition Survey in order to identify the asbestos containing materials (ACMs) present in specific locations and to then conduct a full project management role to ensure the ACMs were removed safely prior to the main refurbishment programme.

On-site training for all staff and contractors was supplied by the Environtec training department alongside delivery of a formal Asbestos Management Plan.


This project offered us some major challenges which required the “best heads” in our business to come together to deliver the project on time and within budget.

Due to the location of the work being at high level and having also to ensure the safety of travellers and staff in an operational international airport hub, health and safety was the main “watchword” on this project.

Due to our role as full time asbestos project manager, we completed a full procurement process to identify a competent and competitive licensed asbestos removal contractor to partner with on the project.

Once in place and following the initial surveying and inspection process, an asbestos removal specification was developed and delivered during a 12 week programme.  Our site managers and analysts conducted air monitoring and project supervision and worked with all stakeholders to complete the first phase of works on time and in a safe manner.
