Asbestos Removal from Former Engineering Factory in Sheffield - Davy Markham

E4 have recently begun working on the former factory at the Davy Markham site in Sheffield. For us, this is a large asbestos removal project that will be ongoing for a few months in various stages and locations within the site.

Our team are liaising with other contractors such as electricians, scaffolders, asbestos consultants and roofers for our works.

We are incredibly excited to have started work on this site, and it is a great achievement for us as a company as it will be the largest project to date and we are also acting as Principal Contractors for this aspect of work.

Works have started now, and preliminary cleaning stages are underway. Our team will be soon starting the licensed asbestos removal of insulation debris in the boiler room and then continuing to the vast sections of asbestos pipework which is located at high level within the factory.

The factory is vast, with many items of large machinery still present that are due to be sold as company assets.

The factory comes with many challenges and risks, as there is still a vast amount of equipment present since the factory closed due to the company going in to administration. They are currently undergoing sales of the high-value assets. Some of the large engineering equipment is directly near where we are working, and will need to be moved when sold. All companies working on site need to take all of this into consideration, as it acts as an additional potential risk factor when planning risk assessments and health and safety procedures.

All asbestos materials, including the roof, will be removed.

An asbestos consultant company we work with regularly, Ensafe consultants, will have a member of their air monitoring team working closely alongside our employees to ensure that all aspects of our work provide satisfactory clean air results throughout the whole process.

Frequently Asked Questions

Some of the most common questions we get asked are answered below for you! For further information give us a...

Q: How long will it take for you to remove asbestos?

Each case is treated as an individual job, so the delivery time is dependant upon many factors. Our Contracts Managers will advise you of this at the quotation point. If the works are notifiable to the HSE, they will be subject to a minimum 14 day notification period, plus our in-house preparation.

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. For more about the HSE process, head to their website.

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.
