Built in 1902, Hammersmith Hospital is a major teaching hospital located in White City adjacent Wormwood Scrubs.
The hospital contains two basement level brick built service tunnels named the North and South Admin Service Tunnels, these tunnels, approximately 250m in length contain both mechanical and electrical services that continue to serve the hospital.
We were instructed to undertake asbestos removal and encapsulation works within both tunnels and connecting plantrooms in order to facilitate urgent fire protection and pipework upgrade works.
The hospital remained live throughout the works, the project was delivered in phases and work was undertaken out of hours where necessary so as not to disrupt the day to day running of the hospital.
