The Problem


Whilst still a live factory until 2012, the site has a history of production with raw asbestos fibres and other hazardous chemical processes requiring a multi-stage approach prior to the demolition of the structures themselves. The site is also extremely sensitive in the local area, with all activities taking place under close scrutiny from Environmental Health Officers, HSE and residents.

320,000 ft ² factory space decommissioned, cleaned and demolished

The Solutions


• Fully intrusive chemical and asbestos surveys commissioned.

• Detailed planning of the works for regulatory approval.

• Initial decommissioning of accessible manufacturing and chemical processes

• Soft strip of buildings.

• Notifiable and non-notifiable asbestos removal to allow further decommissioning and removal of re-usable plant and equipment by


• Full asbestos strip run sequentially to allow recovery of materials for salvage.

• Erection of birdcage scaffolds to remove ACM’s.

• Employment of former factory staff to assist in the managment of the process.

• Areas of the factory compartmentalised, cleaned and validated to allow sequential demolition.

• Hard materials segregated for re-use in development after testing.

Complex temporary works required to access areas and connect negative pressure units



Through careful planning and execution, a technically challenging site is no longer unsuitable for development, with initial works leading to a smooth and safer transition into the remediation phase of the scheme.
