Project Description

Discipline(s): Demolition, Asbestos Removal, Site Clearance
Sector: Industrial
Location: Staffordshire
Project Duration: 4 Weeks

Euro Demolition & Dismantling Ltd were awarded the contract to demolish 3 buildings on the Marchington Industrial Estate, Staffordshire.

The two buildings for demolition are located within Marchington Industrial Estate off Stubby Lane Marchington.  The buildings were formerly a 2-storey office block, a café and workshop / office block.  The buildings had been vacant for a period and were surrounded by occupied business units had to remain unaffected by the demolition works.

Heras fencing was erected around the buildings, with appropriate warning notices to create the exclusion zones and provide security protection in out of hour periods.  Identified notifiable asbestos was removed by a licensed asbestos removal contractor, whilst the non-notifiable asbestos was removed by qualified and trained members of our own staff.  The asbestos materials were removed from site by a licensed waste carrier to a local authority licensed waste facility.

A road closure to the rear of the largest building was put into place whilst the 2-storey office block was stripped out followed by the soft strip of all three buildings.  All fluorescent light tubes from within the buildings were manually removed before removal by a licensed waste carrier.

Mechanical demolition was carried out with a demolition specification 360-degree excavator with a grab attachment, demolishing the building down to slab level.  All materials were segregated, and the waste materials placed into appropriate general waste skips or trailers for transport to a local authority licensed waste recycling centre.  All the brick work, aggregate and rubble was loaded into a dump truck by the excavator and transported to an area agreed with the Client.

All works were carried out within programme, without incident or accident and to the client’s satisfaction.
