WOLLATON HALL, NOTTINGHAM
Case Study – March 2017
Multiple Landmarks and Public Buildings Serviced!
Wollaton Hall is an Elizabethan country house of the 1580s standing on a small but prominent hill in Wollaton Park, Nottingham, England. The house is now Nottingham Natural History Museum, with Nottingham Industrial Museum in the out-buildings.
Due to some up and coming events within the museum, some of the historic furniture is being refurbished and moved into different rooms.
Upon survey and inspection of the display cabinets within the insect room, asbestos insulation boarding panels was identified to the bottom of the cabinets. To enable to cabinets to be moved safely, HB Insulations was contracted to remove the asbestos under fully controlled conditions.
HB Insulation built a structure around the cabinets to form a full enclosure and the asbestos was removed safely.
The project was carried out during 2 days and was completed within the timescale. This allowed the museum to arrange the rooms ready for their first exhibition of 2017.
