A strict logistics management plan was implemented to ensure no lorry or HGV movements occurred between the hours of 8am-9am and 3pm- 4pm.
The multi-storey towers were demolished to ground level via a top-down deconstruction method. The block was encapsulated with scaffolding erected to the building’s full height and flame retardant Monarflex. This, along with the exclusion zones, provided full protection from dust, noise and debris to the surrounding areas (including the rail track 85m away from our works).
During the contract, archaeological investigations were carried out with 16 trenches dug across the site.
The project also included the demolition of a two-storey substation, a concrete framed caretaker’s office adjacent to Cormorant House and the brick-built district heating boiler house following removal of all of the internal plant and boiler tanks. The reinstatement of the new district heating pipework was also managed as part of the project.
