Sympathetic Soft Strip

KpH Deconstruction are experts in providing clients with sympathetic solutions to projects with a sensitive, live or listed nature.

Over 70% of our works are undertaken in live buildings where mitigating noise, managing access restrictions and maintaining live services to existing tenants are of paramount importance. We understand that often as the first contractor on site regardless of the size of redevelopment, part of our role is to ensure excellent working relations with tenants, neighbouring tenants and the surrounding community.

“Silent” demolition techniques are adopted on our most sensitive sites e.g. the use of rubber matting and hand held concrete munchers to name but a few. These techniques have allowed us to strip out and demolish a floor area of a hospital with a live operating theatre in use directly above us.

KpH Environmental Services Limited successfully completed the strip out back to shell of the office Category A&B fit out on three floors in 1 Snowden Street. Working both above and adjacent to occupied offices KpH met the very tight programme period that required continuous dialogue & interface with the building management team and the neighbouring tenants to ensure minimum disruption.

The whole site logistics, control of structure borne noise and removal of debris via the single shared goods lift was dealt with pro-actively and sensibly by Kevin & Andrew and thus enabled the swift agreement of the final account.
