Case Study

Hartlepool Primary School


Hartlepool Borough Council


October 2015

Scope of Work:

The removal and disposal of AIB ceiling tiles from the kitchen, the removal of canopy and light fixtures and the removal and disposal of the internal walls.


Rovin Environmental was appointed by a Local Authority to remove asbestos ceiling tiles from the kitchen and kitchen canopy of a school in Hartlepool during the October half-term holidays in 2013.
The work was planned to allow the kitchen to be refurbished and have all the work completed in time for the school to reopen for the new term.

After the removal work had commenced, the client approached Rovin Environmental and asked if it would be possible to amend the scope of works to allow the removal of the partition walls containing asbestos material. Rovin Environmental management discussed in detail with the client how the extra work could be accommodated without extending the timescale and delaying the reopening of the school.
After informing the HSE, Rovin Environmental put into effect the amended method statement and completed the required work on time and on budget.

Our client was very pleased with the high standards of work and the cleanliness of the area when it was returned for reoccupation. The commitment of Rovin Environmental management and staff who showed through their willingness to cooperate with the client, that they could bring projects to a successful completion safely.
