As the building is deconstructed a floor at a time the scaffold will be progressively struck whilst working in harmony with Downwell. Inner City Scaffolding were constantly on site to ensure that the scaffold could quickly be adapted around the deconstruction works. The scaffold was always kept one lift above the deconsruction works to ensure that the works were safley contained and nothing could leave the footprint of the building.
Prior to the demolition works commencing and with the building now being free of asbestos the internal fixtures and fittings from the building need to be removed. This includes all soft furnishings that would have been left behind by previous tenants.
A 90 tonne crane ensured that the panels did not move while they were cut out of place using a mini excavator equipped with a hydraulic breaker. Once the panel had been cut along both the vertical and horizontal joints, the crane lifted the panel out, lowering it to ground level for further processing.
