Clifford Devlin were appointed to carry out the demolition of four buildings within the Workspace site ‘The Chocolate Factory’.
The works comprised preliminary soft strip prior to removal of asbestos containing materials identified in the R & D survey, soft stripping of all structures, scaffold erection, demolition of all structures down to ground slab level, site clearance and crushing of materials for levelling of site following works.
Our Demolition project manager coordinated the interface between the companies divisions. Through liaison with the Contracts Manager and Operations Director, he was able to re-programme the project to allow the Asbestos team to work through the survey contents, whilst also enabling a meaningful start for the demolition team in the areas of limited contamination.
This joined up approach ensured maximum delay mitigation for the client and ensured that the project was delivered safely as early as possible.
The enabling works involved removal of asbestos roof sheets, insulating board and sprayed insulation from columns and beams (using quilling) and strip-out of partitions, furniture floor coverings and M&E fixtures/fittings.
Significant environmental controls were implemented to reduce disturbance and disruption to occupied offices on site.
