Demolition of the 1974 Building & Hostel Building at Sir E Scott School, Isle of Harris
Client: FMP Construction Joint Venture
Project: Western Isles Schools Project
Division: Demolition & Dismantling
Wm. Munro Construction (Highland) Limited’s demolition division were competitively selected to undertake the asbestos removal and demolition of the 1974 Building and the Hostel Building at Sir E Scott Secondary School, Harris by FMP Construction Joint Venture. This was Munros second visit to the site having removed the Mill Building and Gym building previously to allow the construction of the new school facility to commence.
The works consisted of the provision of a pre demolition asbestos containing materials survey, removal of all identified asbestos containing materials, the separation of the three storey 1974 building from the occupied school building to remain, the complete demolition of all redundant buildings down to the underside of foundations. In addition all masonry and concrete arisings were crushed on site to form recycled aggregate.
Munros were competitively selected due to our proven experience of safely delivering similar projects on the Western Isles, in addition our high reach demolition specification excavator was ideally suited to the delicate nature of the project. Works were completed on budget and time all to the satisfaction of our client.
