Working in conjunction with our retained structural engineers we produced a demolition method statement making allowance for the retention of the façade to 37-41, which overlooks London Bridge. The temporary works design incorporated a steel structure to surround the tower crane providing a support for the lateral propping.
The works included the identification and removal of large quantities of asbestos, the complete demolition of no 36 and the sequential demolition of the interior structure to 37-41. All arisings were removed from site prior to a main contractor taking over the redevelopment.
Protective Scaffolding full height to a 10 storey building providing access, protection and covered pedestrian walk way. The structure took account of the pedestrian crossings, bus stop and access to offices and retail outlets.
External scaffolding and walkway lit at all times. The structure was erected with minimal disruption to the area and retail units were able to trade during the period.
Arguably one of the busiest pedestrian areas in the City of London, with over 10,000 people per day using the area. All works undertaken without any incidents to the general public, vehicular traffic or employees.
