Asbestos Removal London Case Study - Residential Premises


Client: ISG plc
Location: Fitzhardinge House,
Portman Square, London W1
Contractor: Deconstruct UK Ltd

Completion Date: December 2011
Sector: Residential


Removal of asbestos insulation board firebreaks from within ceiling voids in the common parts areas of Fitzhardinge House.











About the project:


In advance of the mechanical and electrical upgrade works to the residential areas of Fitzhardinge House, Deconstruct were appointed by ISG plc to remove the asbestos insulation board firebreaks located above the apartment entrances within the common parts areas. Our remit was to form enclosures across the main entrance to each property and carefully remove the firebreaks working around the existing mechanical and electrical installations.


Project challenges:


Fitzhardinge House continued to be occupied during our works, however, residents were asked to vacate their property for the day as the enclosure would prevent access to and from from their property. Works could not commence until the affected property was vacated and had to be completed by the agreed time that the residents could return in the afternoon. All heating systems had to be isolated during the work otherwise the high temperatures would prohibit work from continuing. Plant and equipment utilised had to be brought to and cleared from the work area each day. We maintained the presence of an operative outside the enclosures at all times to ensure that no residents attempted to access the enclosures.
