Odeon, Leicester Square
An iconic cinema in central London, a prominent historic structure which required asbestos removed along with structural alterations. We carried out a full strip out of all 4 screens, which has a total capacity of 950 seats.
Under controlled conditions throughout the works, we simultaneously completed an internal strip-out to shell and core and removed large amounts of asbestos. We also conducted removals of the external façade, with temporary works including scaffolding, demolition, and structural alterations. The significant location of the building, as well as it’s age impacted the way in which we dealt with the enabling works. The team has to work constantly through new asbestos discoveries to keep workers and the community safe.
Given the complexity of the works, our commitment to responsible and sustainable waste management was still maintained. We continued to review, divide, and load the waste removals within Leicester Square and using our own fleet of vehicles. Safety and wellbeing is at the forefront of what we do. We ensured a well-managed and responsible removal of all dangerous and non-toxic materials.
