The works were carried out over a 26 week period in this time we demolished 11 buildings, recycling 2000 tons of assorted metals, broke up, removed and crushed some 12 acres of concrete slabs which produced some 25,000 tons of crushed concrete to be used in the re-development program. The asbestos removal works took place under fully controlled conditions produced 120ton of waste which went to a licensed landfill site.

The works also had to be carried out around the CLH Government high pressure Pipeline system which require regular liaison with the Fisher German. Once the demolition works had been carried out we undertook the site remediation cut and fill exercise. The site remediation works consisted of identification and removal of contaminated ground to the sites of former fuel storage areas, this also included an area of asbestos contaminated ground and Japanese Knotweed.

When the remediation works had been signed off we started with the site regarding / cut and fill which consisted of removal, movement and relaying in layers of some 16,000m3 of muck and then capping with a 350mm layer of crush concrete in 2 layers which took 19-20,000 tons of material the final finished level only had a tolerance of +/- 50mm this was over the main redevelopment area which was 29,250m2
