Summary

Removal of Asbestos Roof Shingles from a historic building in Port of Spain. The building dates back to the early 20th Century, it houses historical records and is the seat of parliament for the Government of Trinidad & Tobago. A temporary roof was constructed above the existing asbestos roof to facilitate the removal exercise and to prevent exposure of the sensitive documents housed in this building to the natural elements during the roof removal exercise.  Special isolation techniques were used to accommodate a multi-contractor work site (Simultaneous Operations or SIMOPS) and the project was completed on a phased basis to accommodate the re-roofing contractor.
