(Regenter ISDS Ref. 2.5.6) Introduction Our absolute priority is the maintenance of health and safety during any demolition works. The Construction method statement sets out the general security arrangements that will be in place throughout construction. This will also be applicable during the demolition stages. The New Build method statement details the security arrangements for the temporary community facilities, which include play areas, during the construction period. For the avoidance of doubt, Higgins Construction will act as the Principal Contractor for the purposes of the Construction, Design and Management Regulations 2007. A detailed method statement and sequencing for each phase of demolition will be issued prior to the commencement of any work on site. These method statements will be reviewed by the Contracts Manager and Appointed Structural Engineer to assess strategies proposed under Health and Safety grounds, as well as the effects on any surrounding structures, services, etc.

Party Wall Awards The Party Wall Act 1996 came into force in 1997. The Party Wall Act does not affect any requirement for Planning Permission or Building Regulation Approval for any work undertaken. Likewise, having Planning Permission and/or Building Regulation Approval does not negate the requirements under the Party Wall Act. The Party Wall Act comes into effect where work is being carried out on a relevant structure - for the purposes of the Act 'party wall' does not just mean the wall between two semidetached properties, it covers:
• • • • •

A wall forming part of only one building but which is on the boundary line between two (or more) properties. A wall which is common to two (or more) properties, this includes where someone built a wall and a neighbour subsequent built something butting up to it. A garden wall, where the wall is astride the boundary line (or butts up against it) and is used to separate the properties but is not part of any building. Floors and ceilings of flats etc. Excavation near to a neighbouring property.

What work can be done without notice/permission Under the Party Wall Act some work is not covered. Such work include: REG-5.8.6-001 Demolition – Version H

Higgins will pay all reasonable costs of an “agreed surveyor” representing both parties as an independent. in order to progress all Party Wall Agreements. 2. Diversion of existing services and drainage will be completed in advance of any demolition work. Excavations within 3 metres of a neighbouring building where the excavation will go below the bottom of the foundations of the neighbouring building.1 Outline Methodolgy Access to the site will be via the stipulated routes as outlined the project Traffic Management Plan which is attached as appendix 01 to this method statement.8.LAMBETH MYATTS FIELD NORTH REGENTER RESPONSE 5.8.

What work needs a notice and permission The general principle of the Party Wall Act is that all work which might have an effect upon the structural strength or support function of the party wall or might cause damage to the neighbouring side of the wall must be notified. These surveyors will also have direct access to all demolition method statements. will be inspected and kept on site.

Following vacant possession of the buildings in accordance with the construction programme all buildings and sites will be secured utilising “Temporary Steel Screens” to all property openings. We confirm that we are assuming full risk of securing individual demised premises that are void. Notices will be served prior to this date with the respective utility company to disconnect the supplies and remove their meters. The procedure for removal of asbestos is outlined in the section below.8.

Waste Management In accordance with the Site Waste Management Plan Regulations 2008. a detailed Site Waste Management Plan will be developed for the project prior to commencement of construction. Our costs include allowances for the properties to be made “uninhabitable” by cutting off utility supplies (see Soft Strip below). REG-5.8. Any asbestos identified will be removed by licensed operatives in a controlled sequence. Communication As stated in the New Build method statement we will develop a communication strategy to inform residents on a regular basis about progress on programme. visitors and members of the public during the course of the demolition works. Our programme is being carefully developed in small phases to reduce the number of demised properties at any one time and ensure that voids are not a large scale problem across the estate.
