Hafod Y Gest Porthmadog

Scope: Asbestos Removal as part of demolition and rebuild
Client: Major Building Contractor
Sector: Former Council Care Home built in 1970’s which no longer could meet the needs of older people, to be replaced with high quality modern accommodation and care facilities for older people in the area.
Project Duration: 3 months


The vacated building contained asbestos insulation board (AIB) ceiling tiles throughout the building which also had stud wall separation within rooms. The planned works involved the controlled removal of the AIB ceiling tiles and associated MMMF insulation and debris within the ceiling voids above, also to remove one face to stud wall to reveal any entrained asbestos debris for removal and subsequent demolition of the building by the Principal contractor.

The works were phased to account for the layout of the building dividing its floor plan into manageable areas to allow for safe transit for operators and waste removal, also to maintain emergency exits as a precaution.

Works were completed on time without disruption to the Principal Contractor’s schedules and providing on-going support as necessary as the project developed into the demolition and building phases.
