Decontamination and Industrial CleaningDemolitionSite Clearance

Hughes and Salvidge were appointed as the demolition contractor for two phases of work at the Oil and Pipelines Agency’s fuel depot at Gosport in Hampshire.

Our scope of works included clearing above ground obstructions in the proposed compound area (including concrete ramps), demolition of all buildings to slab level, dismantling and removal of all pipework, pipe-bridge removal, demolition of a Linseed Oil Tank area, demolition of Fuel Tanks and removal of the concrete hard-standings or bases in the tank area.

We firstly completed demolition of several large fuel tanks in the Northern area of the site via main contractor Henry Brothers Ltd, followed by similar works on the larger Southern section of the site for Murphy Group.

The Gosport Oil Fuel Depot is in close proximity to the sea, so careful consideration was taken in our methods to reduce dust and foreign object debris during our works and to put measures in place to keep them within the confines of the site.

The site was also close to residences and other businesses so we took care to minimise disruption by monitoring noise and vibration during our works and adhering to a strict Traffic Management Plan.
