Southern project starts in Southend High Street
Foxhall Environmental Services is working on our first project in the South of England since announcing our plans to develop a nationwide service.
The six-month project sees us manage the asbestos waste being removed from the former British Home Stores site on the High Street in the resort town of Southend-on-Sea in Essex. The BHS store closed in 2016 and has since remained empty. Construction work began on the building in February and is expected to be completed by mid 2020.
We are working with asbestos removal company, LAR Limited, with whom we have a long-standing relationship. Stockport based LAR Limited was founded over 20 years ago and has extensive experience in asbestos removal projects across the UK, Europe and Africa.
Foxhall Environmental Services is project managing the asbestos waste coming out of the construction site. The retail store is situated on a very busy, pedestrian only, part of Southend High Street. We are working in an area with very limited access, both in physical terms and with tight time constraints. Asbestos waste can only be removed between 6am and 9am each day.
Jeff Letch, Southern Operations Director, Foxhall Environmental Services says: “We are very happy to be working with LAR Limited on this complex project and to be delivering the high level of service they have come to expect from Foxhall. This challenging work not only involves providing a full asbestos waste management service but also traffic management in an area with severely restricted access”.
Seán Doyle, Senior Operations Manager, LAR Limited says: “This is a large complex project in Essex, with lots of different challenges by way of restricted access, various planning permissions and noise and environmental conditions. We did not have a lot of contacts with regards to waste management in the South East of England and in particular a company who we trust and understand our very high standards and demanding requirements. As soon as we became aware that Foxhall was extending into the South of England, instantly we procured their services for this project as we have a lot of confidence in Foxhall, having worked with them in the North for a long time and now we are delighted to be able to extend the relationship to the South.”
