Charles E Ford Mill – Avonmouth Docks

Client: Bristol Port Company

Location: Avonmouth Docks

Area: 1000m2

Duration: 2 weeks



Project Overview: The project comprised of the removal of asbestos, soft stripping and the demolition of the mill.

Scope of Work: The project was carried out to Health and Safety Executive specifications. The workforce soft stripped all fixtures and fittings from the interior of the building using hand tools.

Asbestos sheets were damped down with water prior to removal. The fixing bolts were removed using angle headed croppers. The sheets were then removed to waiting skips ready for safe removal to a licensed landfill site.

The steel frame was cut using a shear attached to a machine and the building was demolished down to ground level. A crane was used to take graining intake pipe and framework down. The rubble was removed to a stockpile for crushing.

The site was cleaned and tidied and left at slab level for the client.
