NOMS Building Cardiff
This contract involved a complete stripout, right back to shell/core, of two floors of a live commercial office block in the heart of Cardiff. The building interior needed to be completely removed prior to the refurbishment and re-fit of the space. The work included the removal of all waste furniture, fittings, partitions, floor coverings, screeds, suspended ceilings, toilet areas, kitchens and reinforced concrete staircases. The logistics of the contract meant that every item removed from site needed to be carried down the stairs of the building and walked to the skip.
With the project positioned next to the Millennium Stadium, thorough planning was required to overcome the limited time and space available for skip deliveries and pick-ups, resulting in ClearSites careful management of temporary road closures. With all of the other floors in the building remaining fully occupied and its position of being enclosed by walls which needed to remain, the removal of a self-supporting reinforced concrete spiral staircase required detailed planning in conjunction with the structural engineer to produce a safe method of removal and site clearance, taking into consideration its effects on the existing structure. Again, these works were completed out of hours.
