|Project:||Asbestos Removal & Demolition of Lodge Community Centre|
|Client:||Wakefield Council / NPS|
|Date:||October 2015 - January 2016|
After an extensive Pre-Qualification and Tender stage, Ron Hull Demolition Limited were selected to carry out two projects running concurrently for Wakefield Council/NPS. The sites, located just ten miles apart, and required Asbestos Removal and Demolition to redevelop the local areas.
Following in-depth planning by the Management team, RHDL mobilised at the site in South Elsmall with both the HSEQ and Site Manager conducting their pre-start site inspection. A letter drop was then arranged in the local area, ensuring residents were kept abreast of the works and when the main demolition activities would begin.
Following the Asbestos Removal by RHDL's approved Framework Contractor, all buildings were soft stripped including doors/frames, cables, light fittings and suspended ceilings. All waste was segregated and disposed into suitable receptacles for removal off site.
The 360 excavator along with pulveriser attachment were then positioned at the initial opening of the building, and working from a top down method, carefully removed the brick work, exposing the internal building structure. Each section was then pulled down on to the base. Working between columns, the upper sections were pulled into the foot print of the building, all debris landing into the designated drop area within the foot print of the building.
Following the direction of demolition, the excavator progressively demolished the structure along the footprint of the buildings. To maintain the stability of the structure the machine operator demolished the building methodically and sequential in a controlled manner. Demolition debris was then removed off each level as works progressed to prevent overloading.
Commercial & public building demolitions by Ron Hull Ltd – Experts in recycling, remarking & waste management, we are Yorkshire’s leading demolition contractors
Public buildings are often by necessity placed close to vital local amenities and infrastructure. They often intersect with residential areas, busy commercial areas, and contain a high density of utilities. Demolition in such an environment comes with its own unique challenges, and may be affected by strict deadlines based on commercial or public use of these nearby spaces. Equally, different buildings have different purposes and each project might come with a unique list of requirements. The last thing residents, service users, local authorities and clients want is for the project to indirectly disrupt the community.
Ron Hull Ltd have the expertise, based in decades of experience, to carefully balance the need for a dynamic, efficient, cost-effective demolition process with the demands of operating in a modern urban setting.
