Education

Woods are vastly experienced in the Education sector. These works can often be on or adjacent to sensitive sites and therefore all works are planned and managed effectively to ensure that consideration to the existing building structure, its use and integrity in addition to potential implications which may arise as a result of the works to any existing building users and or third parties are co-ordinated in order to facilitate the work with the least possible disruption to all parties concerned.


London Metropolitan University (LMU)

The LMU is a public research university located in London and has campuses in the City of London and the Borough of Islington. Woods have carried out a number of remediation projects to many of LMU’s stock portfolio since 2012. The nature of works required has been varied and has included a mixture of notifiable licensed and notifiable non-licensed projects including the removal of AIB door header panels, firebreaks within corridors and the decontamination of boiler rooms and ceiling voids.

To accommodate the “live” environment we have introduced phased working involving round the clock shift patterns and weekends to ensure the main function of the University is not compromised.

Client: LMU

Duration: Since 2012



University College of London (UCL)

Woods have successfully been awarded a place on the coveted UCL asbestos remediation framework to deliver a range of asbestos remediation services across the UCL estate. UCL is London’s leading multi-disciplinary university that has a large and highly complex structure with 9,000 staff and 24,000 students. Over 140 nationalities are represented among UCL students with overseas students making up nearly a third of the student body. We have recently delivered an asbestos removal project within the Faculty of Law building removing contaminated ductwork.

Sheffield Hallam University

Opened in 1836, Collegiate Crescent was used as a Military hospital from 1915 – 19 and both Collegiate Hall and the main building on Arundel Street were bombed during the Sheffield Blitz (1940). Today Sheffield Hallam is the 6th largest university in the UK with 31,508 students and a turnover of £258 million. The University’s physical environment includes Grade 11 listed buildings as well as brand new facilities.

Woods have recently completed removal works at Sheffield Hallam University having been commissioned as Principal Contractor to undertake the removal of thermal insulation residues within the Collegiate Hall Main Plant Room.

Asbestos trained electrical and mechanical contractors have been deployed to assist with the management, isolation, evaluation, certification and repair of pipework and electrical services as required by the project to facilitate urgent heating repairs to Collegiate Hall.

Client: Sheffield Hallam University

Duration: 13 Weeks




Cranfield University

Cranfield University is a British postgraduate and research based University specialising in science, engineering, technology and management. It contains two campuses with the main campus located in Cranfield, Bedfordshire. Woods have undertaken numerous asbestos removal projects at the Cranfield campus since 2012.

The nature of the works has been in the main removing and disposing of asbestos insulation residues to pipework in the external district heating ducts. Some of these ducts were confined space and therefore required additional safety measures to be adopted such as escape tripods, emergency breathing apparatus and safety harnesses. Other ducts due to work being undertaken in summer months required further control measures due to high temperatures.

Client: Cranfield University

Duration: Since 2012
