    Manchester Royal Infirmary

    The Manchester Royal Infirmary is one of the oldest hospitals in the North West of England and was built in the 18th century. The hospital’s accident and emergency department treats almost 150,000 patients a year. Throughout its history, the hospital has experienced two world wars and countless refurbishments and reconstructions. Like many other older buildings in the UK, any renovations or construction at the hospital would have likely used asbestos before it’s hazardous effect on health was known.

    In 2018, RSK began an intrusive investigation across the site to assess for the presence of asbestos in the soil and made ground. The scope of our programme of work included an intrusive investigation involving 25 window sample boreholes with laboratory analysis for asbestos in soil and pH, a return visit for groundwater monitoring and sampling, a factual report to inform the follow-on remediation strategy, and an initial assessment of the potential waste classification implications of the soil arisings.

    After completing our investigations, we provided robust justification for disposing of non-hazardous soil off-site. This measure saved the client significant costs. Our investigators then produced a remediation strategy to satisfy the site’s planning conditions. The strategy included remediation objectives with details of the proposed remediation and verification work; the likely mitigation measures; the potential for licences and consents; and contingency measures. Once finalised, we submitted the strategy for approval by the regulatory and planning authorities before work began.

    In between submitting and gaining approval, we discussed our plans and focus with stakeholders to keep them up to date. Finally, in June 2020, RSK undertook a site inspection and assessment of the soil samples to verify the requirements of the remediation strategy. The project is an example of how RSK adds value to a client’s projects, whereby it builds trust by providing clear advice and solutions.
