Project details

This property, which was once voted the ‘ugliest’ building in London, was to be converted from commercial office space into residential living space by the new owners. Decontaminate were appointed by Criterion Capital to remove the asbestos insulation board identified in the asbestos survey that they’d commissioned.

The tower had been empty for a considerable amount of time and significant amounts of pigeon guano were present in addition to mould infestation. Much of the asbestos insulation board had been damaged which called for a localised decontamination of the area before erecting a tented enclosure. Decontaminate safely removed all known asbestos.

Project constraints

  • the widespread presence of pigeon guano and mould
  • temporary power was required as the building had no live services
  • manual handling up and down the 17 storeys.
