  • Internal soft strip, 
  • Asbestos removal
  • Demolition works


Client: Boultbee Developments / GPAD
Project Value: £95,000
Location: Shoreditch, London


    Active was appointed as principal contractor to undertake the internal soft strip, asbestos removal and demolition works to the former four storey, one basement level office block at Paulton House Shepherdess Walk adjacent Shoreditch Police Station.

    The project was undertaken on behalf of Boultbee Developments/GPAD with mandatory sustainability and environmental targets met, with over 90% of the building being recycled into renewable resources. The structure was stripped and internal demolition undertaken with zero noise and vibration impact to either the adjacent offices or the police station.

    The building was a brick-built structure with timber flooring and a gross internal area of over 1,280 square meters. All mechanical and electrical equipment, partitions, soffits and flooring was removed from the building, inclusive of the two main stair cores and lift shaft. The brick/block built walls at basement level were removed down to the reinforced concrete ground bearing slab.

    As principle contractor, it was Actives responsibility to protect and retain external boundaries and established the site, which had to be equipped to undertake the works conforming to Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 and Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.

    With a four-week programme and restrictions on site traffic, the project was highly demanding yet completed safely within the programmed timeframe.
