Is Listed Grade 1 and as such is one of the most significant buildings in the United Kingdom.
The West Green Building was constructed in 1912 as the first extension to the site providing additional courtrooms and ancillary space.
The Edwardian Joinery within the courtrooms is a significant element within the Listed Building.
Prior to asbestos removal works commencing, the oak paneling had to be removed with the utmost care, carried out by experienced carpenters, re-instated into existing notices, then french polished to provide an accurate match. Specially constructed enclosures were formed either side of each courtroom and one end to allow for the safe removal of Asbestos based materials, which formed part of the old heating ducted system into the chamber below.
All works were carried out to an extremely high standard of both safety, skill and the requirements of The Planning (Historic Building and Conversation Areas) Act 1990.
The Museum’s Bird Group is housed at the Natural History Museum, Tring. The ornithological collection and libraries are among the largest and most comprehensive in the world.
Romford Insulations are in the process of protecting all the specimen cabinets and removing asbestos, as enabling work for the installation of a Fire Alarm / Detection system and an energy efficient lighting system in the Ornithology Building.
The Grosvenor House Hotel is undergoing a major refurbishment of guest rooms, main reception, public areas, restaurants and kitchens.
Romford Insulations have carried out the asbestos removal and enabling works, which has been instrumental in keeping the project on programme. A dedicated management team, based on site, has assisted the main contractor in not only working to a tight programme but also releasing areas early.
Romford Insulations carried out asbestos removal to two large warehouses on an ex-chemical processing site in Kent.
The use of scaffolding and mobile erecting working platforms, assisted in the removal of more than 6000 square metres of AIB wall panels, allowing the warehouses to be converted into soil regeneration areas. The whole site was classified as contaminated and a complex system of entering and exiting the site was devised to stop the spread of contaminents.
One of the most difficult projects Romford Insulations have encountered was at Britvic Soft Drinks in Beckton, East London. The ceiling over the Production Hall, which had asbestos within the void, required replacing. Extensive planning was required to overcome the main problem of almost continuous production and the possibility of contaminating goods that ultimately were for public consumption. Working with the management at Britvic, it was decided all preparation work was carried out during clean down and closure periods. Temporary sheeting protected all plant and machinery, and although a time-consuming process, allowed the establishment of a secure confined area for the removal and reinstatement of the ceiling to continue without hindrance.
Somerset House is one of the country’s finest and largest 18th Century buildings and Romford Insulations carried out the asbestos removal in the South Building, prior to it’s redevelopment to house the Gilbert Collection.
Regular visits have followed to carry out asbestos removal in other areas of the building.
Church House Conference Centre has recently undergone major refurbishment. Romford Insulations carried out asbestos removal in various locations, including the Grade II listed Assembly Hall. In what is a complex building, all of the expertise and experience of the Romford Insulations management team and workforce was called upon to complete the work allowing the main contractor to work to programme.
Weston Rise is a development of high rise flats in Islington. Romford Insulations were required to enter each dwelling and overcome all the difficulties this entails, in the upgrade of the bathroom/wc extract system.
Communicating and liasing with the general public was instrumental in making a success of this project.
