During an asbestos survey of the building carried out by the client’s appointed consultants, asbestos contamination was discovered within the floor void on level six. Access to the void was severely restricted from the inside of the building making it necessary to form access externally.
Using specialist diamond drilling equipment, openings were formed through the reinforced concrete side wall. Once inside the void and working under fully controlled conditions, the Decontaminate team removed 650 linear metres of mineral fibre pipe insulation and asbestos dust.
