Kingston Maurward College required a new training facility with classrooms and practical areas for their students on their estate near Dorchester.
The new building was situated on the site of a pig farm. The existing steel frame shed was demolished. Whilst carrying out the reduced level dig, asbestos fragments were discovered in the ground. 100 tonnes of contaminated ground had to be removed to a specialist site and confirmed that the site was clean to re-commence works.
The site was challenging as it was in the middle of the college’s teaching facility and so segregation was extremely important whilst ensuring the college could still operate.
