LA Moore Ltd Demolition
Type of Work
Licensed Asbestos Removal
Large scale removal project to former Hospital site
We were awarded the asbestos removal works to the Former Blackberry Hill Hospital site and commenced works in June 2018. The site is a mixture of demolition and refurbishment, prior to being developed by Linden Homes into a large housing development.
We have carried out licensed asbestos removal works of varying types on this site across 15 different buildings, from Asbestos Insulation Board ceilings, to Asbestos Insulation and residue on pipework in large floor ducts and large boiler rooms, and over three hundred meters of external ducts across the whole site.
This is a challenging site where we’ve worked closely with LA Moore to ensure their programme of works is followed, while avoiding interesting historical features that have been unearthed, the resident bats that occupied nearly every building and the general state of the buildings which had been left to deteriorate over the years.
The weather was also a large factor when constructing the external duct enclosures, meaning we had to construct specially designed panels that would withstand the strong winds that continually blow through the site. We look forward to completing the removals to the last 3 buildings, prior to handing back our areas to LA Moore and Galliford Try.
