Asbestos removal, soft strip of buildings, demolition and removal of foundations of various buildings on a large site in the centre of Rotherham. The site is located in an extremely busy shopping area of Rotherham and close liaisons with neighbouring commercial properties were required to make this project a success.
Project Constraints & Challenges:
The site was located in a busy shopping area of the town centre.
A hoarding licence was applied for and installed along a busy pedestrian highway.
Due to the close proximity of the neighbouring properties vibration and dust monitoring was essential.
Footpath closures and diversions were also essential whilst demolishing the buildings.
A diversion of the fire escape routes were needed for the large neighbouring commercial property.
Carpark closures were required for the carpark opposite the site.
The rear of the site is adjacent to a river.
A party wall agreement was also required before demolition could take place.
No environmental impact complaints for noise or dust.
No programme delays.
Successful diversion of pedestrians along the footbridge.
Successful traffic management systems.
The project was delivered on time and on budget.
