Gwella have recently undertaken the methodical removal of Licensed and non-licensed asbestos removal on behalf of TG Escapes who specialise in sustainable building and modern methods of construction. The building at Brune Park Community School in Hampshire consisted of various asbestos containing materials including internal Asbestos insulating board (AIB) columns and over 130 external AIB panels.

Working safely and cohesively using fixed scaffolding, communication from all parties was imperative from the project get go for the overall asbestos removal works to be completed on time.

The project contained many bespoke features; the fixed scaffolding was specifically designed to allow for elevated high level enclosures as well as propping works for recent fire damage to the building.

With great feedback from the Client, we look forward to supporting TG Escapes with any future asbestos removal projects.

“We engaged with Gwella during a tendering process for a demolition project as part of a wider scope of works at Brune Park School. Tom and the rest of the team at Gwella, immediately attended site to survey an existing 2 storey classroom block approximately 1000sqm. They were pro-active in their review of the R+D and asbestos survey to ensure a collaborative scope of works was agreed.

Communication during the tender process was exemplary, meaning we were fully informed at each stage enabling us to meet the critical path and budget envelope.

Their professional approach was mirrored on-site during the asbestos removal works. Again, we were fully informed throughout the process with weekly site reports, and updates. With asbestos being such a sensitive material, within an operating school, H+S needed to be at the forefront, which it most certainly was, with their Contracts Manager and Site Manager being extremely knowledgeable and professional throughout.

If future opportunities arose, we would most certainly be engaging their services again.”
