Pigeon Guano Removal

Project duration

7 Weeks


Econ Group were appointed to remove large volumes of pigeon guano from an old building in North London. The premises had been empty for the last 25 to 30 years and now the owners are looking to transform the building into new social affordable housing.

The building had become home to a huge quantity of pigeons, Econ Group were appointed to oversee pest control measures. Once the pigeons had been removed, we had to seal up the openings in the building to ensure no further pests were able to enter the site. Once this was completed, we cleared a large amount of guano from the inside the building. In certain areas the guano was over 150mmin depth.

“We were impressed with the approach used by you operation team to carry out the works both professional and diligently. Econ were very accommodating to meet our needs from the initial presentations prepared on strategy to mitigate risks and throughout execution of the works and keeping us fully informed and giving us the confidence we needed. The approach of Econ Site supervisors and visiting managers through to operatives on site was always of a high standard and good-natured and we are pleased to give credit where it is due. On site initiatives by the team from demonstrations /videos of emergency procedures when working in asbestos enclosures and working with consistent site uniforms contributed to the site achieving a Kier ‘Blue’ for best practice and working above standards. This was an excellent example of collaborative working and a joint approach to promptly overcome some of the challenges with asbestos and how best to deal with this along with working near challenging neighbours’ properties, the school and the church.”
