The 9,000m nine storey Tower Block on the college’s King’s Lynn campus is the largest educational building in the region and has dominated the King’s Lynn skyline since it’s construction over 40 years ago.
King’s Lynn was taken over from an occupied state with the method intending to soft strip the entire premises back to a core shell. The works consisted of substantial asbestos removal from 9 floors, removing AIB debris and packing from the Ground Floor up to the 8th – removing approximately 1000m3 of ACM’s per floor.
Each floor’s setup included erection of a full enclosure during the removal. During the removal works, constant air monitoring was conducted by an independent UKAS accredited Analyst who had been appointed by West Anglia College. The Campus remained fully operational throughout the course of the works with approximately 2,000 students at peak attending the college.
Works were conducted within a tight programme period of 14 weeks with a peak workforce of up to
30 asbestos operatives and 20 site staff operating the building soft strip. Within this period the project
received daily audits to ensure that the project remained HSEQ compliant throughout.
