Asbestos Removal
Environtec Ltd

About the Project

Decontaminate were engaged to remove asbestos containing materials from within service risers at the College ahead of a mechanical services upgrade programme and refurbishment. An asbestos containing vapour barrier was present to the pipework that ran from the ground floor, through the five upper floors terminating on the roof. Fully sealed enclosures were constructed at each level utilising existing points of access and widening them where necessary to ensure full decontamination of the riser.

Materials removed:

- Asbestos containing vapour barrier 

- MMMF pipe insulation

Project Challenges

- Planning of work to ensure completion within strict timescales 

- Working outside of normal working hours 

- Potential for residual sewage contamination within the work area
