  • Electrical Switchboards & Associated Components
  • Debris in Sub-Floors
  • Mastic
  • Vinyl Sheet

  • Safes
  • Filing Cabinets
  • Kilns

 

Staffing

We have a dedicated Removals and Reinstatement Project Manager whose specific job is to liaise with the schools and subcontractors on what and when works can be completed.

Works were completed during weekends and night shift so as not to disrupt the schools usual timetable. We also utilised the Christmas school holidays period to complete as much of the works as possible with over 30 internal staff fully dedicated to the project over this time.

A total of over 5,000 internal hours have been put towards this project as well as over 3,500 hours from other trades engaged by AAH Contracting with a total of 0 safety incidents to date.

 

Other Trades

Other trades utilised to assist in the Removal and Reinstatement:

  • Builders
  • Carpenters
  • Electricians
  • Speciality Electricians*
  • Plumbers
  • Plasterers
  • Painters

*Speciality electricians were engaged, in conjunction with local energy companies, for large scale overnight power shut downs to allow safe access for removal of some items.

 

Project Management

For smooth running of this large scale project we have utilised a project management system internally that all trades have access to. This project management system assisted in the coordination of works and job briefings of what works needed to be conducted.

Comprehensive removal and reinstatement reports were completed and provided to the client upon completion of works.
