FORMER SONOCCO PRODUCTS SITE, MANCHESTER

Project: FORMER SONOCCO PRODUCTS SITE – MANCHESTER

Value: £150k

Programme Duration: 8 weeks


Scope:
A former manufacturing site was to be demolished as part of local council’s plans to regenerate the surrounding areas.

We were asked by the main client to provide a comprehensive refurbishment and demolition survey for the site which identified widespread use of asbestos both licensable materials and none licensable materials.

We prepared a structured program with set targets that had to be met for the demolition contractor to ensure the demolition program was met. Due to various asbestos materials found on site, a variant method of removal both enclosures based and respiratory zones were employed. A large number of the works to this project included work at height and so a mixture of fixed scaffolding, Mobile Elevating platforms and mobile tower scaffolds were required to complete the project.

Our client was able to complete the deconstruction works with no delays.
