We have particular experience of complex, city centre projects where confined space and the proximity of sensitive receptors (e.g. residential property, offices, retail outlets, pedestrians) present unique challenges. As a result, we have developed sophisticated techniques to minimise disruption to the local community and our impact on the environment.
Our methodology is often better described as deconstruction as it involves the progressive, internal dismantling of the structure using mini plant, remote controlled Brokk machines while reducing the use of hand held equipment which is very labour intensive. The age and architectural significance of many of the buildings involved, often requires complex enabling work to be carried out such as the design and installation of façade retention schemes which is an area in which we specialise.
We have been members of our trade association, the National Federation of Demolition Contractors (NFDC), since 1972.
