  • OVERVIEW

    A complex of steel frame and insitu warehouses required complete demolition. The warehouses were typical 1950s asbestos clad multibay pitched roof blocks approximately 10m high and truss spans of around 25m.

    One elevation of the site was only a few meters from rail way lines. Programme constraints and Rail-track approvals dictated that approximately 150m run of gable end structure adjacent to the rail lines had to be demolished after the main demolition had been completed. The requirement was to allow maximum demolition to free up the site whilst leaving a stable structure adjacent to rail-track property.
