Key Project

Farmiloe Building, London

CLIENT: Standard Life Investments Limited
SCOPE: Soft Strip, Asbestos Removal, Demolition, Enabling and Temporary Works

Strip out of a 1868, Victorian Grade II listed building formerly known as ‘The Farmiloe Building’ including demolition of the rear 1930’s extension and the Atcost shed.

Located near Smithfield Market, the Farmiloe Building and Atcost Shed front the busy St John Street, and are bounded by Grade I and Grade II listed buildings and perimeter brickwork walls of varying height forming the boundaries to the adjoining Charterhouse Mews properties. Access to the site is limited and demolition activities are being undertaken in a restricted space. Due to the close proximity of the neighbouring buildings, extensive movement monitoring is required as well as protection of the surrounding perimeter retaining walls.

Our scope includes salvage/retention of various items specified by the Client, removal of asbestos, monitoring archaeological works by MOLA, soft strip, temporary shoring, demolition to foundation level and backfilling, investigation works and brickwork repairs.

The Victorian Building is to be left in place at Contract Completion but the scope includes the removal of the level 4 mezzanine, including the associated staircase and hoist (to be retained for future use) and extensive temporary weather proofing to the exposed areas.

Waste management plans have been formulated in accordance with BREEAM guidelines.
