The construction of the P5 Filter Base required the breaking out and removal of the existing sub-structure, timed to ensure minimal impact to on-going glass-works operations. The demolition phase was followed by the construction of a complex reinforced concrete foundation, walls and floor slabs and incorporated access stairs and handrails.
