NATWEST BANK, WARRINGTON TOWN CENTRE.
The Civils & Remediation team were appointed to undertake the provision of the S80 and S81 forms and agreement with Warrington Borough Council, detailed all the temporary works and supporting the 2 party wall agreements to enable the careful removal of the former Natwest Bank building which was positioned adjacent to the existing, live, Warrington Market in a busy Town Centre. All early planning temporary works and environmental management requirements were proactively agreed and delivered timely with support of the Client and the Professional Team. Works commenced on site, on programme and each aspect was delivered and inspected by the Party Wall Surveyor as works progressed. The scope included significant temporary works and demolition of the building in stages with void and vibration discontinuities established early in the works to mitigate nuisance for third parties and finally concluded with careful removal of an existing bank vault with significant reinforcements.
SIGNIFICANT ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROL AND OF MANAGING TOWN CENTRE ENVIRONMENT (NOISE, DUST, VIBRATION)
3rd Party Agreements maintained to 2 party walls
The final surface was to be used as a temporary car park so this was resurfaced to public realm specification, trimmed up and drainage channels were installed. The works were delivered on time within budget, without safety or environmental issues and without a single complaint.
FORMER POWERGEN SITE, SHIRLEY. £1.25M
This project required demolition, remediation and infrastructure of the former Powergen high rise buildings and multi-story car park for future redevelopment of this town centre site. The works comprised of arrangements with the appropriate authorities for disconnection of services and removal of fittings and equipment of previous owners. We began with the internal strip out and recycling of all segregated waste, timber, glass, plastic and plasterboard. Followed by the asbestos removal including licenced Notifiable asbestos. The project team then prepared the road closure, to enable the demolition of the 4 and 8 story buildings, to be taken back from the existing dual carriageway at the site boundary. Further road closures and night working continued on other areas of this scheme to mitigate traffic issues.
LIVE TOWN CENTRE ENVIRONMENT
A High rise building and multi-story car park demolition, involving traffic management and lane closures for the demolition pinch point with the installation of roads, sewers and Section 278 works
The four structures within the site boundary were demolished including foundations to -8m and underground structures including all drains, tanks and voids. Contaminated hotspots were removed and bio remediated before placing at depth on site. All concrete and brickwork has been recycled into materials for reuse on site as 6N structural backfills to basements and voids, with the reminder reused on site in the new roads and sewers. The site was remodelled in preparation for a new build following completion of the drainage and road infrastructure.
