GlaxoSmithKline Case Study

GSK’s required their sites at The Frythe, Beckenham and Harlow to undergo radiological survey to assess their radiological status.

The Challenge

To undertake radiological surveys to establish the radiological status of GSK’s site at Beckenham, The Frythe, and Harlow. Then to carry out radiological decommissioning to leave all three sites with no future radiological restrictions.

Environmental Radiological Surveys

The Tasks

Subsequent decommissioning work involved dismantling and removal of fume cupboards and their ventilation systems, contaminated laboratory fixtures and fittings and a number of internal drainage systems.

The Results

All three site were effectively radiological surveyed and decommissioned to leave them free from any radiological restrictions.
