Duration: September 2017 – March 2018

Location: Wellingborough

Rilmac were contracted by a Tier 1 construction firm, to assist in an infrastructure project to facilitate 4300 new homes. Phase one involved the asbestos removal and demolition of a redundant warehouse building, with phase two consisting of the follow-on reduced level dig, to 0.5m, of material contaminated by asbestos cement.

Rilmac employed asbestos trained 360 drivers to carry out the dig, with specially trained asbestos operatives in attendance. Several large bore asbestos cement pipes were encountered, removed at source and placed in asbestos cement skips. All excavated material was then transported to the hard standing where the building once stood.

As the excavated material arrived it was loaded in to a specialist three-way screener that sifted the material to separate items that were <10mm, 11mm – 40mm and >40mm, on to one of three conveyors. Specially trained asbestos operatives would then hand pick out any items of asbestos cement identified. If required each pile of material would be sifted more than once until the trained operatives were confident all asbestos items were removed.

After the screening process the material was sampled in multiple locations and sent to a soil testing laboratory. All results came back satisfactory allowing the client to re-use the material as part of the construction project, saving costly disposal fees.

As the work was carried out between September and March the site encountered torrential rain, flooding, high winds, snow, and ice. Despite the problems caused by the weather, the project was still completed safely, on time and within budget.
