Description of the job

  • Friable asbestos removal from ceilings and pipe coatings within tunnels, air conditioning ducts and shafts.
  • Cement-asbestos roofing removal.
  • Partial masonry demolition.

Critical points

  • In order to respect the timing set for the refurbishment of the whole complex, demolition and remediation works were carried out in only 6 months. This required a huge organisation and coordination work.
  • On average, 30 specialised workers were employed simultaneously in 7 work sites.
  • Identification of all the asbestos contained in the building complex was a critical point. In particular, a complete mapping was carried out to find the underfloor pipes which had not been identified yet. A total of 3,600 linear metres of pipes were found, divided into bundles of 6 pipes each. The main problems were their location and conditions, which required working with extreme care.

Innovative solutions adopted

  • In a previously reclaimed area, where there were still traces of paint and asbestos fibres on the ceilings, the hydro-sandblasting method was used. This innovative solution in the asbestos-removal field, implemented in a completely confined space (static and dynamic confinement), made it possible to carry out the work in complete safety, within a limited time and at a reasonable cost. The traditional procedure would have involved much higher costs.
  • Amount of the contract: €. 2.324.056 (for asbestos removal only)
