Gwella have undertaken Licensed asbestos removal of Pipe Insulation on behalf of Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust.

The works were carried out at Heavitree Hospital in the main plant room and consisted of a 12 metre asbestos lagged pipe which was suspended 3 metres above the floor.

Working safely using specially designed fixed scaffold for access and specialist fire retardant polythene, due to the plant room temperature, our teams worked impressively throughout the project where time was of the essence. Our teams worked around the clock to deliver the project on time ready for the boilers to be handed back to estates to supply the hospital with heating and hot water.

Gwella received fantastic feedback from the client and we look forward to supporting the NHS with any future asbestos removal projects.
