st johns hospital - chelmsford
St John’s Hospital closed its doors and moved all of its services to the nearby and modern Broomfield Hospital. The brownfield site had been earmarked by property developers Inland PLC to build 300 brand new homes.
Asbestos had been identified in a comprehensive Refurbishment & Demolition Survey and was removed prior to the soft- strip and structural demolition.
Once the structures had been demolished, the ground slab (to a depth of 2m) and hard standings were lifted and crushed to the agreed specification for reuse on site, along with the material arising from the demolition.
The demolition was undertaken in a controlled manner, taking into account where the site’s location on a busy highway, with pedestrian and vehicle traffic, nearby residents and a local golf club.
