Prior to this commencing an exclusion zone was formed internally within the building in order to ensure no personnel approached the material drop zone. Mechanical demolition of the building commenced on the workshops, with access for the excavator through a roller shutter door into the workshop. The excavator commenced by removing the third bay of the workshops, this allowed demolition to progress south to north.
Once inside, two excavators demolished the previously stripped-out two-storey offices by means of grapple and pulveriser attachments. Travelling-cranes were cut down by two machines, one holding the crane/steel, whilst the other sheared to isolate the section. The isolated section was then lowered to the ground floor slab. Once the mechanical demolition was completed, small column stumps remained where the machine had been unable to shear the columns flush with the ground floor slab. Qualified operatives therefore used Oxy/Propane burning gear to hot cut the column stumps flush with the ground floor slab, leaving the slab free from trip hazards.
All arisings from our activities were loaded away progressively throughout the project and the project was completed on time.
