Hughes and Salvidge successfully tendered for this £6million project, completing the works to the clients full satisfaction, and handed back the site 6 weeks ahead of schedule.

The buildings on this 50-acre site ranged from large brick and structural steel mill buildings to office buildings. These, together with decommissioned machinery, unused tanks and several large industrial chimney stacks, formed the above ground demolition scope.

There were also 30-40 service tunnels below ground level crammed with pipes and cables. In order to strip the tunnels of their precious assets safely and swiftly, large hatches, rescue winches and breathing equipment were installed to ensure that the operatives working in the confined spaces had natural light and were safe at all times and in the event of an emergency.

This project was located adjacent to the M1 motorway. Dust, debris and other potential disruptions were taken into account at tender stage and regularly considered throughout the works. We employed our approach and vast experience of dealing with dust and debris at airports to this project. Mitigating any risk to the motorway operations.

Having H&S Metals as one of our sister companies (specialising in non-ferrous/ precious metals recovery), Hughes and Salvidge were able to offer the client optimum return on the significant non-ferrous element of the project, maximising credit value throughout the contract.

  • 20,000 tonnes of steel was recycled
  • 1,000 tonnes of non-ferrous and other precious materials were salvaged and recycled
  • 10,000 cubic metres of concrete crushed were used as backfill material on site
  • 98% of materials from the project were recycled
