Enabling Works / Stripout / Demolition

Irrespective of the size of project, we can provide:

  • Enabling Works to assist Architects/Structural Engineers/Consultants
  • Diamond drilling/concrete sawing/machine demolition
  • Temporary propping, demolition of load bearing structures
  • Heavy demolition of localised/entire structures
  • Mechanical and electrical stripouts, including plant rooms, roof structures
  • Removal of lifts and associated machinery
  • Stripout of architectural/soft finishes

We have a talented and competent workforce, with Supervisors and their teams specialising in different activities. Working to tight deadlines, in difficult environments, with logistical and financial constraints – these are examples of where we excel.

To put matters into perspective, recent demolition/stripout contracts completed by Allied have ranged from £2000 to £950,000.

Builders Works / Structural Alterations

Brickwork, blockwork, screeding, plastering, concreting – most projects require some or all of these, and we are happy to assist. Additionally, we have extensive experience of structural modifications including new steelwork, infilling atrium areas etc.

The list of activities we carry out is perhaps too extensive for us to list here; the best way to explain what we do is – if the work relates to the structure of the building, as opposed to the fitout of the building, we can probably help !

We also have expertise in the field of retail fitout, providing a miscellany of services to assist developers/operators of shopping centres.
In the last two years, we have successfully completed projects from values as low as £1500 to as high as £600,000.

Asbestos Surveys / Asbestos Removal

Many of the buildings in which we work contain Asbestos in some shape or form.

In numerous instances we found ourselves working alongside Asbestos Removal contractors, which led us to carrying out detailed investigations. We then built close relationships with an HSE licensed Contractor, a fully qualified Asbestos Surveyor and a national fully accredited test/analysis organisation. Over the last two years we have been awarded contracts from £1500 to £300,000 in value.

Our success in this area was due in no small part to the fact that we were more competitive overall when our customers compared individual prices from stripout companies and asbestos contractors to our combined price. Using Allied meant that only one set of ‘preliminaries’ were payable, and also that there was normally a reduction in the programme time which needed to be allocated to these two activities.

Allied can also arrange Type 2/Type 3 Surveys, background air testing etc to suit your requirements. Detailed quotations and methodologies can be provided at short notice.

Waste Management

Having been associated with a major Waste Management Company for many years, we have negotiated preferential terms for the benefit of our Clients. Further, partly because of the advent of Site Waste Management Plans but primarily because of our concern for the environment, we sort, separate and recycle as much of the waste generated as possible. We are able to arrange regular/ad hoc collections from your projects, using containers, compactors, caged vehicles etc to suit. We can provide you with wheeled bins, and labour to load the waste vehicles as required.

Buiders Cleaning Services

Every Construction Project requires cleaning before handover, and we are there to help. Mobile teams, led by helpful, hardworking Supervisors, can assist you with all your cleaning needs, whether it be cleaning dirty, dusty risers or ‘sparkle cleaning’ a newly fitted out retail unit.
Our cleaning services also include powered floor scrubbers/washers, machine polishers, carpet cleaning, internal/external window cleaning etc.
