The historic widespread use of Asbestos as a building material and its subsequent poor waste management and disposal has resulted in asbestos containing material being present in the soil at many brownfield and some greenfield sites. The asbestos containing materials may have been buried intact, broken up and mixed with other demolition wastes or potentially imported to the site as a contaminant in a recycled aggregate or made ground fill material.
Such land contamination issues from Ireland’s industrial past can result in an extremely time-consuming and costly barrier to development. At Gravity, we provide a range of cost-effective solutions for asbestos-contaminated land, as well as site analysis and site clearance. This can form part of a demolition project or as a stand-alone service for the redevelopment of Brownfield Sites to leave your site in prime condition for future development.
Due to our continued investment in the area of land remediation, our team has access to a fleet of in-house excavators and plant equipment which means we can undertake any decontamination project, regardless of its size and complexity. Gravity fully understands the commercial risks and pressures placed on developers who may be purchasing, selling or developing sites that require land remediation and we aim to provide an efficient and commercially focused service that will expedite the business goals of our clients.
At Gravity our aim is to work to protect your brand reputation as well as safeguard the public and your staff. We understand the trade-off between keeping your business operating and maintaining safety and we are skilled in working to achieve this.
Our service is designed to support three key business activities: capital planned, maintenance and emergency asbestos works. Within these areas we are experts at communicating and collaborating with the multiple stakeholders involved to provide a seamless service.
We understand that commercial work is time-critical so we operate around the clock to minimise trading loss. We are extremely aware of the sensitive nature of our work and are skilled at safely isolating and demarcating our removal works to preserve any customer-facing aesthetics in live trading environments, using specialist hoardings and false walls.
Our 24/7 emergency response service ensures that we can react immediately to get your business back up and running swiftly and safely.
We have vast experience working within all educational building types ranging from Creches and Schools to Colleges and Universities. Our particular expertise in this sector is our ability to work in these highly sensitive environments while adhering to tight timescales.
Typically education projects can occur in complex surroundings due to the risk posed by high student footfall during term time and also due to tight deadlines on larger projects during holiday periods/shutdown. With this in mind we offer a low-key working environment with effective segregation in busy locations, paying close attention to access routes to avoid congestion and potential safety issues.
For our clients peace of mind, all of our operatives are fully Garda Vetted and fully trained on working in occupied premises.
Gravity has completed Asbestos removal projects in hospitals, health centres and surgeries and our principal concern is to ensure the safety of patients, visitors and staff.
With extensive experience of working in high-hazard environments, we have the skills and capabilities that enable us to implement safe project strategies while minimising disruption to the healthcare routine.
Gravity provides a full range of services to the property development industry and organisations involved in property management. We work extensively with property developers in the area of land remediation to prepare brownfield sites for development ensuring the environmental safety of future developments.
We also provide a comprehensive asbestos removal service for a number of County Councils across Ireland removing all asbestos fixtures and fittings to reveal an ‘empty shell’ ready for refurbishment or redevelopment.
