Decontamination of asbestos from a boiler house in the local community centre. About the project:

Our services:

The calorifier vessels and pipework within the boiler room had been subjected to damage over the years and an effective repair was necessary. The damaged pipework was cleaned using h-type vacuum cleaners and ‘tac’ rags before being repaired using calico wrap and elastomeric paint. The boiler house was thoroughly decontaminated and the timber enclosure to the calorifiers was made good.

Project challenges: This project was undertaken adjacent to a live Community Centre that was in constant use, so it was imperative that our operatives carried out the works as discretely as possible and conducted themselves professionally at all times. The access to the working area was directly off the public highway, so a secure timber hoarding had to be erected around the entrance to the boiler room. An operative was stationed outside the entrance to the enclosure at all times, during working hours, to ensure that no unauthorised people entered the work area.

Skansen Highbury Magistrates Court Deconstruct UK Ltd September 2011 Public Buildings

Removal of asbestos contamination from within the ceiling voids at Highbury Corner Magistrates Court About the project: The asbestos contamination within the ceiling void’s on ground and third floors at Highbury Magistrates Court emanates from previous asbestos removal work undertaken to a poor standard. Working out of hours over thirteen phases, our remit was to remove the existing ceilings and decontaminate the ceiling voids prior to a ceiling replacement programme being completed by the Main Contractor. Our work entailed disconnecting and removing various mechanical and electrical installations and forming our enclosures around office furniture and equipment. Project challenges: The works were completed within a demanding programme of 7 weeks working 12 hour shifts, 7 days per week. The ground and first floors were divided into 13 work areas. Each area was turned into a working enclosure by covering all surfaces (except the ceilings) with polythene sheeting. Office furniture, IT equipment, files and personal property remained within the work areas and were also covered with sheeting. Extreme care had to be taken when working around the stored contents, so as not to cause damage. Whilst most services had been isolated within the ceiling voids, our operatives

had to ensure that no services were damaged as all would be re-used upon completion. Following the removal of the asbestos and testing of the enclosure, all exposed surfaces were painted with an elastomeric sealant. Our services: Deconstruction Services
