Project: Asbestos Removal & Demolition
Client: Wakefield Council/NPS
Location: Kettlethorpe, Lincoln
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.

RHDL employed one of their framework contractors to carry out licensed asbestos removal works at Minsthorpe, this was carried out in conjunction with the Soft Stripping of the main building, all Asbestos contaminated areas were clearly signed to ensure no ACM's were disturbed during the process.

Phase 1 of the works started using the 420 excavator and shear/pulveriser attachments, the Stremet boards and tin sheet roof were removed from the South Eastern gable end of the Coal house and pool plant room structure and segregated ready for removal from site. The walls of the structure were pushed into within the footprint of the building down to slab level and left in situ. The exposed vertical columns were then be removed which allowed the machine to progress into the building.
