Type of structure – Warehouse
Client – Kitchen installation warehouse & showroom
The showroom needed new lighting and a fire alarm upgrade completed but this could not be achieved due to the identified asbestos cement debris & dust on the top of the ceiling tiles. Grosvenor Asbestos Solutions completed the safe removal of asbestos cement pieces and associated dust over several shifts, working in a methodical and structured manner. The team were required to work between 1800 to 0100hrs to ensure the premises had zero occupancy to reduce asbestos risks.
The decontamination of the asbestos cement debris was the focus from the tops of showroom ceiling tiles, which were accessed from the warehouse but also via safe working platforms in the showroom. Fine cleaning of the showroom was required before the end of each shift to allow for opening the following day. Work also involved the safe removal of contaminated and redundant ducting as an aid for follow-on trades works.
During these works, a full vacuum of debris and wipe down of all surfaces was conducted to decontaminate surfaces. Following the successful completion of the job, documentation was compiled, and satisfactory air testing was completed.
Following the work undertaken by Grosvenor Asbestos Solutions, the client had reduced their asbestos risk as far as reasonably practicable to allow follow-on trades to complete safety compliance works within the showroom/warehouse. This included fire alarm upgrades, new lighting, and emergency lighting upgrades.
