Euro Demolition & Dismantling Ltd were awarded the works from our repeat client at the Minnivey Colliery in Scotland.

The works on the former colliery included for the demolition of the former office, store and rail buildings down to slab level.

The site and the buildings had been subjected to considerable deterioration, arson, vandalism and fly tipping, having been vacant for some time.

The works include for the removal and disposal of all asbestos containing materials as well the removal of all redundant rail and sleepers.  Demolition of 3 buildings consisting of one 2 storey brick-built building, a portal frame shed / storage building and finally a small block-built rail shed.

The general scope of works was the removal of all asbestos containing materials, consisting of asbestos mastic, flash pads and asbestos containing bitumen felt roofing on the main building.

Upon completion of the works the site was left in a clean, safe and secure condition with any resultant excavations / voids being backfilled with clean material thus preventing any ongoing trip or fall hazards.

All materials were removed from site by relevant licensed waste operators.

All works were finished on time and without accident or incident.
