HIGH STREET KENSINGTON

Project: Asbestos Removal for Refurbishment

Client: Scott Osborn Ltd

Location: High Street Kensington, Kensington, London

Timescale: Dec 18 – Feb 19

Contracts Manager: Chris Jones

Rilmac Asbestos Services were contracted by Scott Osborn Ltd for the removal of floor tiles, bitumen and AIB ceiling tiles to one stairwell at a building on High Street Kensington.  In total an excess of 200m2 materials were removed.  Due to the site office being on the top floor of the nine-storey building, which only had one goods lift, a hoist was erected on the side of the building for lifting heavy plant and lowering waste.  An additional challenge was the lack of parking in the locality.

Several offices in the block were still occupied and care was taken not to disrupt their working, which included a daily quiet period for the businesses to take lunch without grinding taking place.

An issue arose when an adjacent business complained of smoke in their offices.  Although Rilmac had installed a fully compliant enclosure, added further sheeting to doors and windows, and were working under fully controlled conditions, with a vacuum attachment on all grinding tools, they were still concerned.  Work was temporarily ceased while an investigation was held, and residue from the smoke tested, the results of which proved that the cause was not Rilmac’s work but instead emanated from a roofing contractor.  Scott Osborn were impressed with Rilmac’s attitude to the situation, and the additional actions taken to reassure tenants.

Client Feedback:

Doug Howorth (Project Manager) said he was very pleased with Rilmac and the way the project progressed.  He also said that logistically the project was going to be challenging and that Rilmac handled it brilliantly with the hurdles that were presented. Doug complemented the on-site team saying they were all well behaved, professional and worked well with the Scott Osborn on-site team.

Steve Reid (Health & Safety Manager) said he was happy with everything regarding to the project, that the RAMS were comprehensive and all in order. He also said that he was happy that all the completion paperwork was returned promptly and that Rilmac’s responses were always quick and transparent.  He suggested that he would be happy to work with Rilmac again in the future.
