20 Hanover Terrace
Built in the 19th century and a Grade I listed, Hanover Terrace is situated at a high-profile location overlooking Regent’s Park.
Back in 2014 and as part of a full refurbishment package, we carried out asbestos abatement works involving the removal of asbestos thermal insulation within floor voids and risers and asbestos insulation board in various locations throughout the building. As the original features were to be retained, the relevant protection of these features was required before work commenced.
Given the listed status of the building, as part of the remediation all floorboards removed were required to be labelled, recorded, and photographed. Our specialist carpentry teams then worked alongside the abatement teams to relay them.
As part of this, all lathe and plaster ceilings were propped from below and the void was carefully cleaned.
- all work to be carried out to the satisfaction of English Heritage
- care to be taken not to damage heritage items
- floor boards to be removed and re-laid
- fragility of lathe and plaster ceilings.
