This month, one of our teams is on-site in Bridge Street, Christchurch for a new client Churchill Retirement Living. The former gas works site consisted of an old, fire-damaged warehouse to the rear and a large derelict restaurant facing the road. The site is being cleared to ground level to make way for a mixed tenure development of affordable, retirement and open market housing following sympathetic consultation with the local community and planning authority.
The warehouse was cleared first and we're now working on the restaurant which require collapsing the building inwards - not onto Bridge Street! The main house will come down first followed by the adjacent seating area.
HWM Group's demolition arm has deployed two Kobelko SK300 excavators on the project, one working on the primary demolition and the other on secondary phase including separating the waste for subsequent removal.
