Demolition

DDS Demolition undertook the demolition of a classroom block within Lenham School. The buildings were a conventional single storey load bearing steel framed structure with concrete foundations.

The school itself was limiting in its access capability with a shared access to the front of the school. Works included asbestos removals, demolition and site clearance. Licensed asbestos removals were undertaken by DDS Environmental and non licensed removals by DDS Demolition.

The school was consulted on the plans with party wall negotiations alongside sustained clear communication to ensure all parties maintained access and mitigated any potential disruptions.

DDS Demolition confirmed the termination of services to the structure before demolishing the structure. A traditional method of demolition was used, in a bay-by-bay sequence with a 20T excavator and rotating selector attachment, once the cladding panels and glazing had been stripped away from the external elevations. The demolition was undertaken down to top of ground slab level followed by the break out of ground slabs and foundations. Due to the space limitations on site, the grounds slabs were continuously cleared to prevent overloading of the external walls. A section of foundations were left in situ which were in close proximity to a sewer.

All demolition arisings were cleared from site, with the site being left clean and clear on completion.
