Golden Gates Housing Trust – Asbestos Removal
Client: Golden Gates Housing trust
Contract value: £450,000
Contract duration: 7 months
Golden Gates Housing Association in Warrington has appointed Frank Rogers to manage a complex asbestos removal programme at properties across the area.
Following a series of survey and sampling works, over 400 homes have been found to have been affected by asbestos and a concise programme developed to manage the works under controlled, specialist conditions.
The properties were affected by two different types of asbestos, each demanding a different approach. Covered scaffolding was erected across the properties considered high risk whilst work was managed at the remainder of the homes using low level access equipment.
Frank Rogers appointed a specialist asbestos removal contractor to work with the inhouse team, overseeing the works whilst managing the programme, including resident liaison.
Mike Travis, Contracts Manager at Frank Rogers said:
“This was a complex and sensitive programme due to the nature of asbestos and the risks surrounding it. We have a solid track record working in this area and have appointed specialists who are experts in this field to support us in the successful delivery of this contract.”
