Plymouth RDC Roof Replacement Works
Dartmouth General Contractors, as roofing contractors completed the work over an 11 week period. This involved fixing the fall arrest system (internal netting), internal debris netting to safeguard people working in the warehouse, scaffold access and edge protection and the roof replacement itself.
The project involved removal of asbestos roof sheets, rolled insulation and plasterboard lining, installation of new Kingspan Roof sheeting to incorporate new roof lights, new valley gutters and edge flashings. It was imperative that the warehouse remained in operation 24/7 whilst the works were undertaken.
“All works were carried out to suit the operation of the warehouse, with netting taking place overnight, so no disruption of the picking operation took place.”
Dartmouth General Contractors provided additional management to cover these hours. Air monitoring took place only when stripping of the asbestos roof sheets was being carried out. In addition, Rooftech were asked to provide an additional back up by means of an on-site cleaner, to ensure the floor and racking were kept clean of any residual product. The cleaning was carried out using damp cloths which were double bagged and disposed of in the separate hazardous waste skip.
“On this project we scored 98.73% Green.”
DGC recognise the importance of training its employees to ensure they all possess adequate Health & Safety training, which extends to its sub-contractors. In this instance, all Rooftech’s operatives needed to have training which qualified them to remove notifiable and non-notifiable asbestos products, possess the appropriate Face Fit tests to allow them to comply with HSE guidelines on Respiratory Protection, along with their training in working with Kingspan roof products.
