Site of the Month December 2018 | Licensed Asbestos Removal Works at Rugeley Power Station

Rugeley Power Station licensed asbestos removal works are officially completed and has earned the well-deserved recognition of Project of the Month for December 2018. This project was completed ahead of programme and to our client’s complete satisfaction. It has been a pleasure working with one of the UK’s leading Demolition and Dismantling experts Brown and Mason Limited. What a way fitting way to round off 2018 and here’s to what lies ahead in 2019! Well done Leah Lewis and Ricky Gravil and the Rugeley team for their continuous efforts.

Operations Manager – Ricky Gravil

Credit this month goes to Leah, Ricky and the team at Rugeley Power Station who have this month successfully completed a substantial 6-month asbestos removal contract for Brown and Mason Demolition.

The power station was originally built from 1956 and completed by 1963 at a cost of 30 million pounds. The site is now owned and managed by Engie.

Engie is a leading energy and services company focused on three key activities: production and supply of energy, facilities management and regeneration. Towards the end of the project Leah and the whole team were commended for their excellence in the safe delivery of the project.

This has been a substantial project valued at 5.6 million pounds but it has had its challenges in managing complex risks. However, with the exceptional levels of communication between Leah, Ricky, Lead Supervisors and client contacts there has been a very good transparent communication system that has ensured that the project was completed with an excellent level of due diligence.

The Supervisory Team, led by Ian Birnie, have excelled with a great team spirit and co-ordination of site activities was very productive. Special recognition also goes to Lee White, Matt Daley, David Lyle and Michael Daley for their strong work ethics in bringing the job safely within the deadlines. Experience in jobs like this is essential and Ian and his supervisory team have demonstrated a great team ethic in ensuring that safety has never been compromised.

The site has also been subject to extensive site safety audits by Omega’s Health and Safety Manager, Tony Birchall, and it was noted that the links between the site and the client are very good with regular risk assessment review.

Well done to Team Rugeley!
