Update to Fargate Sheffield City Centre Development

Further to our asbestos removal works, progress has been made to the development of Coyne’s new student accommodation above retail shops on Fargate, in the middle of Sheffield City Centre.

All the windows have now been removed, and the scaffold is still present for new windows to be installed. The main building has been stripped from all asbestos, and they will be soon focusing on the internal decoration aspect to create high-standard accommodation.

It’s great for us to see the progress and development of sites such as this, and I hope we are able to return to see the finished result when it is habitable!

The external scaffold is still present around the building - Park Hill flats can be seen peeking through here.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What should I do if I find asbestos?

Before removals can take place, the type of asbestos needs to be identified with an independent surveyor to determine the exact properties. Never attempt to remove it yourself, and call a professional such as ourselves. If it is in bad condition it may be treated as an urgent matter.

Q: Why do some works have to be notified to the HSE?

In order to protect all members of the public from any unnecessary asbestos fibre exposure, the HSE requires certain types of works to be notified to them at least 14 days in advance in order to regulate and control the removal procedures. These types of works include certain fibres and ACM’s, and these works may only be done by licensed contractors.

Q: How many types of asbestos are there?

Asbestos has two sub-categories; Serpentine and Amphibole, defined by their difference in fibre qualities. In the Serpentine category is Chrysotile (also known as White asbestos) with S-shaped fibres. In the Amphibole category is; Crocidolite (Blue asbestos), Amosite (Brown asbestos) and also lesser-known Anthophyllite, Tremolite and Actinolite, all with straight fibres.
