Tustin Estate

Southwark, London

The project at Tustin Estate was to disconnect and remove the podium slab, demolish the garages located under the podium slab and to demolish the community centre, clear all arisings and remove all the slabs and foundations within the demise

Working with Engie for Southwark council we implemented a strategy that enabled the residents access and egress to the Tower blocks of Ambleside point, Grasmere point, and Heversham house whilst the normal access and egress routes were removed.

The gas supply to all 3 blocks was via an external gas pipe that ran around the external perimeter of the site and then ran up the outside of the buildings, this had to be protected at all times. Some of the podium slab was able to be saw cut others had to be cut using high pressure water jetting cutting techniques. Temporary propping of specified areas of the slab under the gardens of Haslemere house had to propped and then a retaining supporting wall had to be installed. The community centre was demolished using pulverising techniques and all arisings from the project had to be removed. Dust suppression was provided in 2 forms, the first being around the perimeter of the site using a fine mist suppression system the stopped dust escaping from the site compound, and the second was direct water suppression from our dust Bosse.
