Client: Walker Construction Ltd

Duration: 20 weeks

Location: Berkshire

Clifford Devlin were instructed by the client to assist in the roof project of a large food warehouse in Berkshire which included asbestos removal and demolition.

The project involved the removal of external asbestos cement corrugated roof sheets and internal cement panelling where scaffold towers were required to penetrate the roof. Clifford Devlin completed removal of 4000m2 of corrugated AC Roof sheet and AC Belgium Board. Demolition works included removal of internal walls and M&E services.

The project involved a temporary roof enclosure and internal birdcage protection in order for our works to go ahead.

The works were conducted while the factory remained fully operational at all times and every effort was made to deliver the project as inconspicuously as possible to prevent alarm or disruption to the factory staff and visitors. A central compound was created to locate our lockable skip, welfare facilities and vehicles.

The team developed a project plan that included timelines, schedules and risk assessments that suited the factory working environment. We erected clear barriers around our works to prevent unauthorised access which included warning signage.

The enabling works will make way for the reinstatement of a new roof. The next phase of works includes the removal of redundant M&E Services above the factory.
