Pegasus Life, Wilmslow, Cheshire

The project at Pegasus Life, Wilmslow which saw Blucon fulfil the role of principal contractor, involved the full clearance of the site prior to the construction of a new nursing home by Pegasus Life.

The logistically challenging project involved the full stripout of the former Cheshire council buildings on the site, all of which required licenced asbestos removal works prior to the stripout, followed by their mechanical demolition.

As well as the demolition, clearance and asbestos work undertaken by Blucon directly, the project also involved a number of specialist subcontractors who undertook section 278 works, culvert diversions, groundworks and even the construction of a specially designed bat house.
