Weaver Demolition were appointed to carry out the demolition of the former Southmead Police Station to make way for future development. The scope of works involved licensed and non-licensed asbestos removal, soft strip of buildings, demolition of the various structures and the breaking out of the former prison cell block.
Working within close proximity to a neighbouring building, scaffold protection with full monarflex was installed on one elevation and progressively reduced in line with the demolition. This not only acted as a safety measure in the event of debris falling in the wrong direction, but also as a guard for dust nuisance to the neighbouring property.
All foundations and hardstanding’s were removed and together with brick work crushed on site to 6F2 specification and stockpiled for re-use in the future development.
