As part of a renovation project to one of the world’s top 10 universities, Deconstruct UK Ltd were appointed to undertake the demolition of a section of the Kings College London building. The buildings, located in central London, were demolished to make way for improved teaching facilities that would help enhance its international reputation.
Enviroguards strategically positioned around the site
While carrying out the demolition to a section of Kings College London, Deconstruct needed to monitor the structural integrity of nearby structures, reduce the risk of pollution to students and staff and minimise environmental impact. Noise, dust and vibration needed to be monitored in real time.
We proposed that Enviroguard would be the ideal solution for this situation. Enviroguard is a static monitoring station that can be configured with any number or type of environmental sensors.
For this project the required sensors were:
Multiple units of Enviroguard were strategically placed around the site. The siting points were chosen in order to optimise the readings around the most sensitive areas of the college.
Enviroguard was the ideal choice for Deconstruct as it required little or no input from their team. The modular system design allowed for the units to be changed during the project duration, so sensors could be added or removed as the project demanded.
Enviroguard streamed measurements in real-time to our web portal, LIVEsite. Once logged in through to our secure servers, Deconstruct managers could view data from one or multiple stations/sensors via single page view or via multi-site. Sensors could be grouped via geographical area, type or parameter and measurements presented from any time frame chosen in graphical or tabular format.
Trigger levels were pre-programmed into the system to generate an email to authorised users as soon as a threshold level was breached. This allowed Deconstructs management team to react quickly and ensure corrective action was taken.
Our engineered solutions range from standard designs to major projects, through to emergencies. We can also offer an end-to-end service from design and supply through to installation and removal.
We can work with you from initial concept design through to project completion, across all aspects of temporary works.
No matter how large or complex the project, we can help. It's what our major project teams do every day!
