Northbank Demolition were engaged on several contracts to remove redundant plant and equipment in order to allow the Client to reuse the existing space or provide newer machinery. The demolition works were undertaken within a commercially active environment and had to adopt the Client’s on-site health and safety, traffic management and behavioral policies. The segregation of the works and Northbank’s operatives from the existing environment was paramount. All operatives had to undertake a Client led site induction and questionnaire. Dust control measures were critical, and the working area had to be segregated from the surrounding production areas in order to minimise cross-contamination. Plant and equipment that was to be removed had to be purged by the Client prior to removal.

Several items of plant and machinery were to be retained by the Client and these were removed prior to the commencement of Northbank’s works or were protected and remained in-situ. Where items of plant and equipment were only accessible once the removal process had been progressed these were identified and handed back to the Client.
