Case study: Parcelforce Hereford

Leafield Projects were employed to strip and re-sheet an asbestos cement roof at a live Parcelforce delivery office.

This project has a number of tricky elements; the depot had to remain operational first thing in the morning and late afternoon. The surrounding buildings were to remain operational. On top of that the works saw some of the heaviest floods in recent history.

The works were co-ordinated to allow for an area of the roof to be stripped off at a time. Large scaffold access towers were built to help operatives safely remove the asbestos cement sheets.

Air monitoring was put in place to ensure methods of work were being carried out as stated in the project plan.

Despite losing two weeks to heavy rain and strong winds, Leafield still finished the work on time and on budget. Handing over a building with the following benefits:

  • Increased thermal performance
  • Increased aesthetics internally and externally
  • Increased lighting levels internally
  • Insurance backed 25 year guarantee

The project was subject to a number of Health and Safety audits, both by Royal Mail and the main contractor. Leafield Projects scored consistently high marks.

"Leafield Projects completed the project despite all of the obstacles thrown in their way. The works remained on time due to the reactions of the management team and the effort put in by their workforce." Bryn - Site Manager
