Group Synopsis

DDS Group proudly nurtures the ethos of a family run business. With over 40 years experience providing trusted and capable services in demolition, asbestos removal, groundworks and enabling packages, we recognise that our reputation comes from the people within DDS and the exemplary work we deliver on site

Aiming to be ‘The Contractor of Choice’, we take pride in our reputation as experts within our field that always focus on Customer Satisfaction, Health and Safety, Welfare and Environmental considerations.

Our History

Set up in 1977, 'Downfast Demolition and Salvage Ltd' was originally established to undertake projects in East Kent with high volumes of architectural salvage (e.g. Bricks, Tiles etc) which we cleaned, processed and resold back into the local market place. As time progressed, so did our reputation as an honest and fair family-run business, which spurred our growth in the construction industry and began our evolution into DDS Demolition, now a national demolition contractor.

Over 40 years later, DDS has grown from strength to strength and undertakes projects across a wide range of sectors for an even broader range of clients. Applying the experience gained from the demolition of complex structures in challenging locations, DDS is recognised by repeat clients for doing things the right way, without compromising safety or quality.


“We understand that demolition is the pivotal first step for our clients’ new ventures.”
