TATA CHEMICALS CHESHIRE | 174 ACRES
The demolition of the old Soda Ash plant, with original drawings dating back to the late 1920’s, represented a science and engineering challenge in safely and efficiently tearing down a steel building structure without impacting TATA’s adjacent live chemical manufacturing and energy plant operations. Proximity to the local community and residential areas was another key consideration.
The Soda Ash Plant had been used in the manufacture of Sodium Bicarbonate via the Ammonia Soda Process.
Our involvement expanded from the initial contract negotiations and collaboration with contractors to execution of the Demolition Hazard Study (HAZDEM) and final dismantling and demolishing of the buildings to deliver a clear site for further development. The technical and intricate demolition of the buildings took 24+ months to complete.
Safety was our team’s state of mind throughout the project, and it took leadership to drive it. We worked with a collaborative but challenging style, a team that evolved as the work progressed and funnelled attention to detail.
