DDS Demolition undertook the demolition of 8no buildings of mixed construction, load bearing brickwork, steel frame and reinforced concrete. DDS Demolition provided a turnkey service to Berkeley St William, utilising the services of DDS Environmental for the asbestos removal works.

During pre-demolition, isolations, soft strip works and asbestos removals were carried out. Soft strip utilised controlled drop zones within designated building atriums, containing dust and noise within the footprints of buildings.

The brickwork and steel exhauster building required chimney removal via mobile crane and hot cutting to steel. 360 excavators clamped the steel roof trusses whilst fixings were cut, followed with the demolition of the brick main structure by traditional excavator and rotating selector grab attachment.

All other structures were demolished down to top of slab level using high reach 360 excavator with hydraulic rotating multi-processor attachment accompanied by protective scaffolding erected to building external faces.

360 excavators fitted with hydraulic breakers were used to break out slabs and hardstanding's to a depth of 0.2m and foundations to 1.5m. Concrete and hardcore arisings were then crushed and stockpiled on site. Additionally, hardcore bunds from foundations were removed. DDS laid and compacted a piling mat to specification using crushed arisings. Furthermore, DDS liaised with the clients drainage contractor to facilitate the installation of incoming drainage provisions inclusive of an attenuation tank.
