DECENT HOMES DEPTFORD PROJECT

The Objective:

As part of a decent home project for Lakehouse plc on the Vanguard Estate in Deptford we were contracted  to carry out the remainder of an asbestos removal programme previously started by another contractor who was replaced for continued health and safety failures. This meant that the quality of the project, the programme time and the client relationship was failing.

 

 The works involved the removal of asbestos roof tiles and an asbestos cavity barrier which separated the roof voids.

Challenges:

We had to clean bulk storage items belonging to the tenant who had used the lofts as storage space. We then encountered several lofts contained mature bees nests whose occupants became quite feisty during our works, this led us to instruct a professional company to come in and remove them before we could complete our works. These unforeseen elements were adding to the delayed programme so to combat this and ensure we completed on time the supply chain of Capstan and the Scaffold Company increased labour levels to meet the programme delivery date on time

 

Total cost: £500,000.00

 

Project length: 8 Months

 

Client: Lakehouse
