Water Storage Tank Removal

Client: Badgemore Park
Project: Badgemore Park, Henley on Thames

Brief Description:

KpH were awarded the project to remove two redundant water storage tanks at Badgemore Park, Henley on Thames. The tanks were located in the tower and needed to be removed ready for new clocks on the South and East facing sides of the tower

Several contractors had declined to quote due to the complexity of the work involved

Scope of Works

  • Our skilled operatives set up a safe working area within the loft space of the tower
  • On further investigation prior to commencement of the works, water was discovered beneath the lining of the tank
  • KpH pumped out the clean water into drums
  • The trained team worked in restricted conditions breaking the tank down to manageable sections using cold cutting methods
  • All waste had to be removed via the small loft hatch and onto clients erected scaffold platform down to ground level, using a 300kg wire hoist
  • The area was cleared of debris, brick and lining and the site handed back to the client
  • All waste was safely and successfully removed from the site and all disposal paperwork was handed over to the client on completion
  • The project was a logistical challenge in many ways but one that KpH staff were experienced¬† and skilled in to deliver to the clients expectations
