WH Snow acted as principal contractor on this prestigious project, transforming the historic Corn Exchange in Liverpool from a multi-use tower block in the heart of Liverpool city centre containing shops and offices, in to a swanky new apart-hotel.
Asbestos was identified in various locations across the 9 storey building, which we removed in phases working directly for WH Snow. We worked alongside numerous other trades including a demolition team, electricians and fit-out contractors, to a tight and strict phasing plan in order to successfully remove the asbestos without affecting the principal contractor’s master programme.
We maintained exclusion zones throughout the works to ensure other contractors could work safely in other areas of the site whilst our removal works took place.
Director Luke Gumbley said “Not only was this a difficult project due to the site being right in the centre of Liverpool, but we had other trades to work around who were keen to push on with their works and ensure they weren’t held up in any way. We ensured that a direct connection to the decontamination units was always possible through state-of-the-art modular decontamination units. The waste was removed from the bag-lock and stored in a purpose-built waste enclosure under negative air pressure, so that waste could be removed when a slot was available for our wait-and-load skips. I’m very pleased with how the job was managed by our site supervisors and our team of contracts managers, and we have a very happy client who is keen to involve us on their next upcoming project.”
