Lakeside House, Uxbridge

Strip Out and Enabling

Client: Oakmont Construction
Project: Lakeside House, London

Brief Description:

Working alongside our client Oakmont Construction, KpH Deconstruction completed a 16 week Strip Out and Enabling project at Lakeside House in Stockley Park.

The works commenced just prior to the nationwide Covid-19 Lockdown in March 2020 which required our Site and Operations Management Team to react swiftly to the changes required to ensure our on-site operations could continue safely.

Scope of Works

In order to facilitate the waste removal from site we removed the front section of glazing within the reception  and reversed the waste vehicles back into that area, then working alongside our scaffold contractor we constructed a scaffold waste chute, to allow the waste to be loaded directly from the 1st and 2nd floors, this chute was also extended up to the roof and used when clearing the concrete/rubble waste. Throughout the loading process waste hoses were used to dampen down the waste and control the dust and banksmen were used to ensure the waste vehicles were in place and no one entered the loading zone.

With the chute in place this meant we were not reliant on using the lifts and allowed programme to remain on target. On average we were undertaking up to 8 x 40 yard skip movements per day.

Scope of Works

  • Partition Walls, Ceilings, M&E services, Floor Coverings and RAF;
