Dismantling the High Street
FDS were given full principal contractor role under General Demolition’s banner for the initial demolition of temporary trading structure (TTS) previously occupied by Fenwick as part of a major redevelopment and new build. The building was a modular, steel structure spanning two stories and provided Fenwick with 23,000 sqft of temporary space. First Demolition quickly established a site perimeter upon negotiation with the council and temporarily suspended 40% of council car park spaces. The demolition itself was straight forward – utilising a 35T excavator with a sheer and 21T with a grab, the building and its foundations were dismantled and removed within 3 weeks, without incident.
The key to a speedy completion was utilising the space to our advantage. Using two machines enabled constant clearance and kept site safety conditions to the highest standard.
