Asbestos removal from landmark listed building in central London

About the project:

We were appointed by BAM to carry out a major ‘cut and carve’ package on this high profile scheme within central London. Asbestos was present
in various forms throughout the building, but predominantly as hardset asbestos insulation within the risers serving the central core, also as an insulation board lining to the main lift shaft. Additionally, isolated incidences of notifiable and non-notifiable asbestos were identified throughout the building that required removal.

Project challenges:

The asbestos removal operation had to be completed in the midst of a very busy construction site.

The works needed to be planned meticulously through close liaison with the demolition teams, ensuring that work areas were clearly designated and not affected by the ongoing and adjacent demolition process.

Transit routes had to be kept clear and work areas were often very restricted.
