Further Information

Prior to commencement of demolition VertaseFLI updated and supplemented the existing Pre-Demolition Type 3 Asbestos Surveys to permit the submission of the statutory notifications for the removal of Asbestos. In excess of 150 tonnes of asbestos bearing materials were removed.
Following removal of all asbestos from the buildings they were demolished and subsequently crushed to produce a secondary aggregate (6F2).  In all, some 6,000m3 of crushed aggregates were generated.
Following demolition and clearance of the structures, VertaseFLI proceeded with the remediation of hot-spot areas of contaminated soils (hydrocarbons, metals and asbestos) and the site was handed to the client’s ground worker for the subsequent construction of the proposed residential houses.
