Project details

Open by Queen Elizabeth II in 1975, Adastral Park is a science campus based on part of the old Royal Air Force Station at Martlesham Heath, near Ipswich in the English county of Suffolk.

When the site opened it was known as the Post Office Research Station, but it was subsequently renamed BT Research Laboratories or BT Labs and later Adastral Park, with buildings on site named after stars or constellations.

BT continues to remediate the building estate of asbestos and commissioned Decontaminate for the following works.

Scope of works

  • asbestos removal works
  • asbestos-licenced scaffolding (erected within contaminated areas).

Project constraints

Large volume of live services to be decontaminated whilst remaining operational and in situ.
