Demolition

DDS Demolition carried out the demolition of 2no linked multi storey car parks over and within the live and operational Dover Docks.

The works essentially cut the existing buildings along a horizontal cut line to reduce the structures down to the retained live offices, passenger terminals and border force search facilities located below. A top down methodology was formulated to incorporate strict confinement of working within the perimeter walls of the structures. A carefully sequenced intermittent lane closure was timed between the ports scheduled arrival and departure traffic enabling material and plant movements outside of the working area.

Secure external Monarflex encapsulated scaffolding and multiple large crash deck structures ensured control of debris, dust and noise. Below the horizontal cut line, existing lift shafts and staircases were used to form Insitu concrete slabs to protect the buildings below. Then uniquely engineered enclosures were erected over exposed openings to weatherproof along the cut line as the building was being reduced. Temporary propping was also installed to existing vehicular and pedestrian ramps and bridges. Key to success was the careful logistical planning that remained considerate to the clients operational requirements, facilitating the works within the busy 360-degree live operational surroundings.

The scope included the complete asbestos removals, strip out works, top down demolition to proposed levels, isolation and termination of services, scaffold erection, erection of protective crash decks, forming concrete slabs to cap staircases and lift shafts, erection of scaffold crash decks to vehicular ramp, bridge and pedestrian bridge, erection of weatherproof enclosures over floor openings in accordance with DHB specification.
