What was the issue
Hounslow’s old Civic Centre needed to be decommissioned with staff moved to new premises.
With the closure of the old Civic Centre planned for April 2019, Coalo spent the preceding four weeks delivering a phased decommissioning of the building and moving staff into the new premises.
We worked with the council to minimise inconvenience and maximise efficiency.
These tasks required pinpoint programming, with pre-start and in-progress coordination meetings, traffic management, erection of scaffolding, use of heavy lifting equipment, the collation, review and approval of risk assessment and method statements, setting up and managing Permit to Work systems and the collation and retention of all associated documentation.
We specified tendering works to: Remove and set aside for re-use the roof-mounted solar panels. pump out and recycle the fuel from the back-up generators, reclaim the coolant from the air conditioning system and manage the removal of furniture and fittings.
We then worked with the utility companies to isolate and decommission supplies.
