Our client was confident that ICS could execute these works sympathetically and to target and we were awarded this prestigious contract following a formal tender process.
ICS arranged provision of major refurbishment (T3) asbestos survey to localised areas prior to commencement of any works together with the supply of all subsidiary services including storage, an electricity supply and water.
ICS were required to painstakingly remove asbestos thermal insulation to pipework employing the Wrap and Cut method within the South Staircase void and the Great Staircase void through several floors.
In order to avoid damage to the structure of the building it was necessary to cut the pipework out in small pieces to avoid unnecessary removal of original wooden joists.
Great care was taken to avoid damage and preserve such fine heritage during the installation of necessary polythene enclosures required to remove Asbestos insulation board in the form of wall panelling under fully controlled conditions within the South Turret.
Further ACM’s were again carefully removed from across the site including gaskets in the Saloon, WC cisterns within the derelict Stables and flash suppressers, cable sleeves and thermoplastic floor.
Aston Hall represents one of England’s finest Jacobean mansion houses, set in 50 acres of parks and gardens and as such whilst logistically challenging, we were honored to contribute to such a prestigious project.
