Demolition work at airport completed

18 October 2012

Work is now complete on the demolition of the top 2 floors of the arrivals terminal building at Jersey Airport.

The 2 floors housed the former air traffic services facilities, which were successfully relocated to a new building in 2010. The former offices were deemed beyond economic repair and contained asbestos, which the airport wished to remove. Part of the remedial work during the 10-month project has included making the building’s roof wind-proof and watertight.

The arrivals terminal building, which also houses the Jersey Met Office, remained open throughout the £1.6m project with no disruption to passengers, airport users or airfield operations. The bulk of the work was carried out by local building contractor, AC Mauger, who also worked on the construction of the new air traffic control building. 

Group Infrastructure Director for Ports of Jersey, Ray Hine, said: “Under at times challenging conditions the contractor successfully undertook this major demolition project while the terminal remained open. This was a major achievement on all sides and in part is down to the skills of our contractor, AC Mauger.” 

The overall project, which has included the part demolition, will also see improvements made to the facade and interior of the building, part of which dates back to 1937 when the airport first opened. Although this is not a restoration project, airport authorities are mindful of public interest in the building and every care has been taken to preserve as much of the original building as is deemed safe.
