Appointed to deliver an integrated scope of works on the former ITV Studios on London’s South Bank.

PROJECT OVERVIEW.

Our scope included the entire building, including all finishes and mechanical and electrical services, both horizontal and vertical. We stripped approximately 11,000m2 of material, including lifts and a roof plant, leaving just the building's shell. The isolation of main services, encapsulated scaffold erection, and tower crane foundations were also installed.

600T OF HAZARDOUS MATERIAL REMOVED

KEY ACHIEVEMENTS.

Collaborating with Contractors:
Time was key for the client, so we collaborated with the ongoing contractors to optimise and synchronise our programmes. We devised concurrent sequencing with other contractors to ensure we delivered the programme betterment.

Working with Neighbours in Mind:
Community Management was paramount due to the proximity of local residents and the high foot traffic in the neighbouring cultural hub of Southbank.

All works had to be carefully monitored to ensure the site did not exceed the strict noise and vibration limitations in the area.

Removing Eight Football Pitches of Asbestos:
The undertaking was huge; our Environmental Services moved floor-by-floor over the 18 stories and three extra studios to remove 600 tonnes of asbestos.

The works were completed using bespoke scaffolding and specifically-designed multi-level and faceted enclosures which required intricate and large-scale planning. All works were carried out under fully controlled conditions.
