Case Study // Tesco, Sevenoaks


The works involved the asbestos removal and decontamination of all ceiling voids on a busy high street in the centre of Sevenoaks.


Due to the nature of the works Erith were required to work throughout the night to allow trade to remain operational. In order to ensure seamless transaction of the removal activities Erith had to comply with a stringent work programme with daily demobilisation required.

Erith’s in house waste transfer station enabled the movement of hazardous waste and allowed operations to be carried out throughout the night and cause minimal disruption to Tesco’s trade.

Remaining Operational 

Of particular note was the decontamination of all ceiling voids which covered over 2,000m of retail space and was executed systematically according to the target driven programme.

Erith’s activities were undertaken within the 12 week programme and on budget, with the store remaining operational throughout the duration of the project.
