We started working in the field of demolition in 1967 and now rank within the world's top three companies for this service. Completing the UKs most complex demolition work, our highly skilled teams provide the highest level of service to our valued clients. We have honed our reputation as a leading demolition and deconstruction specialist through more than five decades working in this competitive and highly intricate industry. As a business, we pride ourselves on our experience and remaining flexible for our clients within the sectors in which we work.
Demolition, deconstruction, deplant, soft strip

Allied to the construction industry, our demolition capabilities derive from a wide spectrum. Our portfolio covers a range of schemes nationwide and amalgamates an envelope of complex demolition projects. Contracts have ranged from high rise and low rise in-situ concrete structures, including various modular 60’s style buildings, to historical structures of listed status. 


Specialising in demolition and deplant activities in a heavy industrial setting and with a comprehensive array of plant and equipment, we have formed a strong presence within the industrial fi­eld. Projects of this nature have included industrial units, nuclear power stations, manufacturing facilities, petrochemical plants and electrical sub-stations of operational and redundant status. Projects of this size often involve working under controlled conditions in a sensitive environment. 


In recent years, we have worked on some of the most complicated schemes in terms of scale and complexity. As a group, we have completed various high profi­le demolition projects across the UK within both the public and private sectors. These include the largest demolition sequence in Europe (at its time) with the demolition of Lafarge’s Northfleet Cement Works, the deplant and demolition of Bradwell Nuclear Power Station and the top-down demolition of Kingsgate House situated in the heart of the capital.
