Salisbury Group helps Cardiff Airport fly ahead of the competition

Cardiff Airport

Salisbury Group, a provider of building energy and FM solutions, has completed a landmark contract with Cardiff Airport to transform its energy usage. The project will reduce lighting bills by over 50% and save around £1.7m to 2030 – a direct saving for Cardiff Airport.

Cardiff Airport is one of the fastest growing airports in the UK. As the key national transport hub for Wales, it serves 18 airlines flying to over 50 direct destinations and over 900 connecting destinations. 1,468,000 passengers travel through the airport every year. 

The contract supports Cardiff Airport’s ambitious growth plans to increase the choice in flights and enhance the customer experience. 

Through the contract, Salisbury Group fitted 3,200 new gold standard LED lamps and luminaires across the airport. It updated lighting in the passenger terminal, baggage collection zones, car parks and non-customer areas, including administrative offices and baggage handling areas. The existing halogen and fluorescent lighting units were removed and disposed of environmentally.

As well as fitting modern and sustainable lighting across the airport, Salisbury Group’s energy experts developed a solution that future proofs it against higher energy prices. The company helped to secure preferential rates with leading suppliers by analysing the best solution that returned the most long-term value.

As a result of this successful project, Cardiff Airport and its customers are now benefitting from: substantially reduced lighting bills; reduced carbon emissions; better lux levels in key public-facing areas; lower health and safety risks throughout the airport

Ed Swales, CEO at Salisbury Group, said: “We are very pleased to have completed this important contract for Cardiff Airport. It is already providing financial savings and reductions in carbon emissions, enhancing Cardiff’s position as the airport of choice. We are proud to have supported our client’s vision to be an outstanding capital city airport, delivering an exceptional customer experience for all who use it.”
