Scope of work

Challenges Faced:
Adjacent building in close proximity to the building being demolished, a party wall agreement had to be
reached to erect scaffolding to protect the building.
Close to local residence and businesses.
Suspended parking bays for loading out as no vehicles had available access to the site.

How we overcome this:
Scaffolding was erected to protect the building.
Controlled noise and vibration levels by working to restricted hours in line with the voluntary section 60.
Applied to the council for parking bay suspension 7 day prior to demolition.
Also had to apply for a license for the loading gantry
