Park Lane

Dismantling And Removal Of Boiler Plant

Client: Property Serve Uk
Project: 69 Park Lane, Croydon
Value: £18,200

Brief Description:

KpH Environmental Ltd was instructed by Property Serve Uk to carryout the dismantling and removal of Cast Boilers, and Redundant Pipework/Flues. KpH were advised that asbestos rope gasket was present on the boiler. Operatives remained vigilant during the dismantling, and advised the client should any other material be found or be suspected of being asbestos.

Scope of Works:

The client was looking to remove the boiler sections, and setting up a large crane to lower the waste from the rooftop on the 10th floor. This in turn had its logistical problems as there was underground parking, and structural propping was likely to be required.

KpH put forward a method of dismantling the approximately 3.5 ton boilers without using hot works, but a successful method of cold works. As well as the removal of waste through the building without causing any damage or disruption by working through the night. KpH also ensured during this, the working area and transit route would be clean and tidy.

KpH were awarded the project and attended the site in a short mobilisation period to begin works. An experienced team carried out the dismantling and removal to a high standard with no complaints or damage. The removal works were carried out within the timescales quoted and to budget. All disposal paperwork was handed over to the client on completion.

 Client Quote:

“As you are aware the project was not originally intended to happen until the summer months, however the scheme was brought forward to urgent status following failed Gas Safe checks which condemned the existing boilers. From the outset and from point of initial contact, KPH went above and beyond the normal requirements for a scheme of this nature, and have provided us invaluable assistance in producing urgent costs, mobilising and indeed delivering a first class service safety conscious service without delay, and without a single complaint from a rather difficult client base”.
