Former BHS, Burton On Trent
Location: Former BHS, Burton On Trent (Key Property Solutions, Part of Bowmer and Kirkland)
Duration: 8 Weeks
Descriptions: Full strip out of a former BHS and removal of external canopies.
Methodology: firstly, operatives removed all general waste from the former store. They were then split into teams, with one team removing block walls to allow access for plant, whilst the other team removed the ceiling tiles, grid and redundant M&E. An excavator fitted with a specialist fume filter, proceeded to demolish the back of house; office, kitchenette and toilets.
The removal of the floor slabs was completed using floor chisels; the remaining screed was then grinded down using a diamond bladed walk along grinder, back to the original concrete slab.
Due to the shopping centre being live the removal of the external canopies and external brick work was completed during night shifts. We used a rubber tracked excavator, fitted with a shear to remove the steel canopies; the external brickwork was removed by hand using a scissorlift.
