CLIENT: Watts & Hughes Construction
PROJECT: Christchurch Wastewater Treatment Plant (CWTP)
JOB TYPE: Asbestos Removal
Scope was appointed to undertake asbestos removal from the roof of a building at Christchurch Waste Water Treatment plant during refurbishment work being carried out by Watts and Hughes. The bitumen membrane that had been applied to the roof contained asbestos which had soaked through to the timber below. Both the framing timber and the bitumen membrane were removed.
Third-party independent air monitoring was running throughout the roof removal process to ensure the safety of both Scope staff and CWTP personnel, as the removal area was fringed by operational areas of the treatment plant.
The roof removal took place in two stages to allow the Water Plant to continue operations during our asbestos removal.
During the subsequent demolition of the building, asbestos -containingh vinyl was identified.
An enclosure was built around and over the various areas of vinyl. Our team worked closely with Watts and Hughes site management to deal with the vinyl swiftly and deliver a fast response to ensure minimal delays to their project.
