Case Study

The Need

Our client was working as part of a large renovation and new build project. To enable demolition works for the buildings they needed licensed asbestos removal works to be carried out safely and in a timely manner.

The solution

We found that the best solution was to work with the other contractors to plan a scheme that allowed other works on site to flow. This was accomplished through co-operation between all parties.

The Benefit

Thanks to the careful planning we were able to create a works sequence that enabled the site programme rather than hindering it. By working co-operatively follow on contractors could get where they needed to be in line with their programmes.

Felixstowe Holiday Village

Asbestos Removal – Demolition

Scope of Works

One Group Solutions were engaged by our client to carry out two phases of Licenced asbestos removal prior to demolition works at Felixstowe holiday village.

Firstly, we were consulted to establish a scope for the best options available to the client, in terms of financial performance and timescale.

Secondly, we were engaged in carrying out the licenced works on site. These included the safe removal and disposal of Asbestos Insulation Board to a number of areas across multiple buildings. All works undertaken were fully enclosed with the use of negative pressure units and full decontamination procedures applied. Some ACM’s were located at high level so the need for fixed scaffolding was included in the scope to ensure the correct and safe working method was available.

We had to ensure that our works did not clash with those working around us. To this end we had onsite project management to make sure that we achieved the outcome that our client desired.

During the project One group solutions were visited by the HSE and exceeded their expected level of control and COVID-19 preparedness. We were later also Audited by ARCA, the governing body for Asbestos removal, and scored an A grade Audit. Works were completed ahead of schedule with a boost to the overall site programmes.
