Project Description

The Project & Works

In a listed building sitting just north of the River Thames, our job was to strip out six floors for JP Morgan, back to shell and core.

Inside was the company’s European disaster recovery floor, so zero interruptions to service was an absolute must. Pristine London ensured the building remained open throughout the period, allowing 24-hour dealer trading to stay live.

Pristine London managed the services isolations and certification prior to the electrical and mechanical services being rendered safe for stripping out.

Three of the floors were programmed to be stripped out concurrently which required a peak labour gang of 70 trained and competent strip out operatives, four SMSTS supervisors, two electricians and two mechanical services engineers.

The entire programme was managed successfully without any services interruption to the client. More than 2,200 tonnes of waste were removed from the building, a mixture of metal, plasterboard, glass, wood and carpet. These were segregated at source and disposed of through licensed waste carriers. The vital statistics for non-hazardous waste were:

96% recycled, 3% waste to energy and 0% landfill.

A number of elements were fit to re-use in their current format – furniture, carpet and ceiling tiles, fixtures and fittings – all of which found their way to recycling and charitable organisations.
