Removal of asbestos insulation board firebreaks within the ceiling void of the Royal Academy of Engineering.

As part of the planned refurbishment of the Royal Academy of Engineering, it was necessary to remove asbestos  insulation board firebreaks from around the lighting positions within the ceiling void to the ground floor.

In total, there were 27 firebreaks and these were located above the existing plasterboard ceiling which needed to be carefully removed to provide access to the asbestos.

Following the removal of the plasterboard ceilings under controlled conditions, the rooms in which the firebreaks were located were formed into sealed enclosures and the asbestos removed.
