143 Regent Street
The client was undertaking the complete refurbishment of the shop unit located in the heart of London’s shopping district at 143 regent street. The client commissioned a pre refurbishment asbestos survey which identified fibrous asbestos insulation board materials to be present.
Due to the shop’s location and very restricted access the client required the services of a licensed asbestos removal contractor whom had experience with working in the heart of central London and was able to plan and schedule works to take place within a building fronting one of the busiest shopping locations in the world!
Once appointed, Active’s project management team were able to not only swiftly plan and undertake the required asbestos remediation works, but were also able to arrange for the design and installation of fixed site hoarding on behalf of the client, including the client’s chosen hoarding artwork around the front of the shop unit within Regent Street. The hoarding was utilised by the client for the duration of the follow on refurbishment works.
Due to the property location much of the works had to be undertaken outside of normal daytime working hours at night, Active worked closely with the local authorities in order to arrange site logistics including required bus stop closures which enabled deliveries, vehicle movements and waste disposal from the site to be completed.
Active’s team worked relentlessly to effectively implement control measures and remove the fibrous asbestos materials from site in order to ensure the client’s refurbishment programme could commence on time, with the asbestos removal work zones being independently inspected and certified by UKAS accredited analysts upon the completion of asbestos removal works.
