STOFORD DEVELOPMENTS, PANTHEON PARK, WOLVERHAMPTON £1.6M
The project consisted of structural demolition and land remediation of a disused portion of the existing Acenta steelworks site to render it suitable for a future cost effective commercial development. The demolition works involved dismantling two large steel frame portal sheds, previously used in steel fabrication which contained significant asbestos materials along with three smaller masonry buildings, several reinforced concrete structures and a 40m tall defunct steel water tower. The tower was removed by a ‘deliberate controlled collapse’ method as a least risk option. All reinforced concrete floor slabs, service channels and foundations were also removed along with disused service feeds.
SITE GEOTECHNICAL RE-ENGINEERED WITH BIO-REMEDIATION, SOIL STABILIZATION AND MODIFICATION
100% of site won materials were processed on site for reuse.
100% of site won materials were processed on site to allow them to be reused in the general site remediation. The undeveloped section of the site contained areas of contamination and needed to be treated, geotechnical re-engineered with bio remediation, soil stabilization and modification to provide a surface suitable for redevelopment. This area was green stripped then excavated and fully re-engineered to provide a developable surface without the need for piling for the following building works; during this operation all contaminants were removed, segregated and treated for re-use on site with pre-agreement and final approval with Wolverhampton EHO and the local EA Officer.
