Branch of Premium High Street Food Retailer in Westminster
About the Project
Decontaminate were engaged to remove asbestos from within a retail area below a live hotel, situated in the heart of London’s West End. The Project saw the first closure of one of the retail chains units to undergo refurbishment. The cost of the unit being shut for the works was significant, as a consequence the delivery of the Project was entirely programme driven. Decontaminate delivered the works through both day and night shifts, requiring careful planning of resource to ensure we remained compliant throughout our works.
Asbestos removed from the retail unit include:
- Pipe insulation
- Asbestos contamination to ceiling void
- Residue to walls and concrete structures
A key challenge Decontaminate had to overcome was the removal of a historic non-asbestos ceiling constructed of EML and plaster ceiling.
Within the property was an aged and complicated M&E system, careful tracing and isolations of which were key to the success of the Project. With little historic information available Decontaminate had to ensure that all services were temporarily isolated during our works.
