Arriva Bus Depot – Richmond

GRP were tasked with the asbestos removal, demolition and redundant tank removal from the Bus Depot by Broadacres Housing Association. The demolition of the building took place near residential properties and a busy road.

The concrete slab was broken out and crushed on site ready to be used in the construction phase of the work by RBA Moody (Bros) Contractors. The contents of the redundant fuel tanks had to be WAC tested to check what substances they still contained as well as the surrounding soil due to suspicions that the tanks may have leaked slightly. Hydrocarbons were found to have leaked into the soil so it had to be removed from site and disposed of at registered waste disposal site. The holes were then refilled with clean recycled hardcore ready for the construction phase to begin. The contract was completed on time.
