‘Oh Ewan Does Like To Be Beside The Seaside’

15th March 2017

Hughes and Salvidge’s latest edition to the Projects Team, Ewan James, has just completed his first solo assignment – with the site clearance and part-demolition of a fire-damaged commercial property on Bognor Regis Seafront.

Ewan, who joined us in October 2016, project managed the removal of the building waste and demolition of the remaining structure from the former Beach Restaurant and neighbouring vacant former nightclub – which suffered fire damage in November, 2016.

Ewan oversaw the removal of all site waste to slab level, and the demolition of the final remaining standing part of the structure, and overcame the unexpected find of a hidden 12-foot basement, by taking measures to ensure our machines didn’t drive over the cellar. 

An asbestos survey couldn’t be made before we started, as the site was mainly a pile of site waste, so when asbestos was suspected to be in the rubble as clearance commenced, Ewan ceased operations and brought in a specialist sub-contractor to remove the asbestos before we continued.

Ewan completed the 2-week project on time, within budget and to the client’s satisfaction and now moves on to his next two projects in Guildford and Whitchurch.
