Asbestos Removal London Case Study - Residential Local Authorities
Client: Ayerst Environmental
Location: Hammersmith, London
Contractor: Deconstruct UK Ltd
Completion Date: April 2012
Removal of asbestos contamination from within the roof spaces at a housing estate in Hammersmith.
About the project:
In advance of a water tank upgrade programme, the Council appointed their consultants to carry out an asbestos survey of the loft spaces. The survey identified asbestos contamination throughout the loft spaces and Deconstruct were duly selected by the consultant to decontaminate the roof spaces. Access was gained up to the loft spaces using purpose built scaffolds and 3-stage airlocks were constructed to provide controlled access. Work to remove the contamination which includes the existing loft insulation was carried out under fully controlled conditions, within the confines of sealed enclosures.
All properties remained fully occupied during the course of the works. With access into the roof spaces not being available internally, it was necessary to erect independent scaffold towers externally and form access into the roof spaces. The works were undertaken with the utmost care to ensure that no damage was caused to the underlying ceilings. Movement throughout the loft spaces required the use of Youngman boards. Our operatives carried out the works in full PPE/RPE from the work area, to the decontamination unit. A hoist was erected to assist with the transfer of waste from roof to ground level. Following the removal of the asbestos, the clients consultants carried out stringent clearance testing of the work areas before they were deemed clean enough for the tank replacement programme to continue.
