RICS is the pre-eminent organisation for professionsal working is the land, property and construction sectors in the UK and around the world.
Eton Environmental have been assisting with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) on the full refurbishment of the offices and conference facilities at their London headquarters on Parliament Square. RICS is the world's leading professional body for qualification and standards in land, property and construction with offices throughout the world.
Eton Environmental conducted a full refurbishment survey at RICS headquarters in London during the autumn of 2007 ahead of major refurbishments to their offices and conference facilities. The building is made up of both Victorian and 1970's sections, including listed areas. The surveying was carried out at night when the building was unoccupoed and constant liaising with the project team was required with regards to listed areas and safe access. Eton took samples throughout the building during the survey and sent them to Eton's laboratory for testing and analysis. Abestos contain materials (ACMs) were found throughout the building.
Eton Environmental then assisted with the tender process to employ a suitable licensed asbestos removal contractor and managed the asbestos remediation project whilst working in partnership with the architects and principal contractor. Throughout the works Eton Enviromental supplied full analytical support, which included constant backgroud and leak air testing and four stage clearances.
The entire refurbishment project took four years and Eton Enviromental assisted throughout that time with further, progressive surveying as the refurbishment scope evolved and managing any subsequent remediation as required.
