Asbestos containing materials (ACM's) were identified in the Refurbishment and Demolition Survey throughout the buildings. These had to be removed in controlled conditions, in accordance with the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, and disposed of to a licensed tip. An analyst was employed during ACM removal to ensure all operations were in accordance with current applicable regulations. When all the identified ACM's had been removed, operatives remained vigilant in case previously undiscovered asbestos was identified.
The properties did not contain high volumes of reclaimable building materials however those that were recovered were removed off site to a licensed tip.
Dust and vibration suppression was of paramount importance and measures were installed to ensure levels were kept to an acceptable level – intermittent monitoring was carried out to ensure this.
