Project: Queens Estate, Blackpool
Value: £100k plus
Programme Duration: 6 weeks
Scope: Queens Park Estate is a 1970’s council operated housing estate consisting of several high rise residential flats and three and four storey maisonettes located in the North of Blackpool. When we were sub contracted to conduct the safe removal of asbestos materials the properties were unoccupied as they were due for demolition. These works consisted of the removal of Asbestos thermoplastic floor tiles, asbestos lined doors and toilet cisterns to each property and Asbestos Cement products found to the risers of the high rise flats.
Licensable Asbestos Insulating board was also found in several balcony areas of the maisonettes which were removed under fully controlled enclosures. The programme of the works issued to us by our client was 6 weeks but our teams successfully completed the works early to which our client was very happy with as they could then move on to the next stage of the project. As all of sites were licensable material are being removed it was notified to the HSE under the 14 day notification period. Due to the prestige nature of the site the HSE decided to visit us and inspect our works.
The officer was shown around site by our fully qualified site supervisor who dealt with his needs and queries in a professional and positive manner answering any questions he may have had. After spending a couple of hours on site the attending officer was extremely satisfied with what they had seen on site and no improvement notices or notes of concern were issued.
