The site already has an existing planning consent, and demolition is therefore underway to prepare for any future development. Demolition of the office building currently on site will began on Monday 6 July. The demolition will take around 19 weeks to complete, finishing in November.
The project is in two phases, the first 9 weeks (which is now complete) were mostly internal works and the remaining phase will be the physical demolition of the building.
At the start of the demolition programme we erected hoardings around the site and the building was wrapped in enclosed scaffolding. These hoardings secure the site and wrapping the building reduces excess noise and dust.
All measures are being taken to reduce the impact of noise and dust.
Working hours will be:
- Monday to Friday 8am – 6pm
- Saturday 8am – 1pm
We are pleased to confirm that we will not require the closure of any local roads.
All vehicles coming on or off the site are FORS registered, which is a scheme that encompasses all aspects of safety, fuel efficiency, economical operations and vehicle emissions. FORS is a voluntary scheme that helps improve operators’ performance in each of these areas.
No more than three vehicles will be on site at any one time. These vehicles will be controlled by a banksman to further improve pedestrian and cyclist safety. Furthermore vehicles will not need to reverse further reducing any noise impact.
