Weaver Demolition were employed by their client to act as Principal Contractor for the demolition works at McArthur’s Yard in Bristol. Works comprised of the site clearance, licensed and non-licensed asbestos removal, followed by high-reach and standard mechanical demolition of multiple structures situated within the McArthurs Yard site to make way for a new commercial and residential development.
A number of items identified by the client had to be carefully salvaged and stored so that they could be incorporated into the future development of the site.
Due to the positioning of the site, consideration had to be given to the neighbouring properties which consisted of the SS Great Britain, Albion Dry Dock and Commercial and Residential Properties. Strict adherence to the projects party wall agreements was fundamental to the successful completion of the project.
As with every project, a full and bespoke set of RAMS were developed in line with site specific and programme requirements to ensure the safe and timely delivery of the project.
All arising’s were segregated prior to leaving site and brick and concrete arising’s were crushed to 6F2 specification on site and stockpiled for future reuse.
