Demolition of 4 No multi-storey block of flats as part of the local regeneration project.

Scaffold was erected in traditional tube and fitting to the full height external perimeter of each multi-storey block to provide safe access for asbestos removal. The erect phase for each scaffold took just four weeks, followed by the fitting of shrink-wrap sheeting to form an enclosure for the asbestos removal. Upon dismantle of the scaffold, the tower blocks were mechanically demolished.


The requirement to coordinate the hoist and scaffold erect sequence was critical to achieving the ambitious scaffold erect programme. The solution is to utilise the hoists to load out the vacant floors within the tower blocks with scaffold materials, ahead of the progressing scaffolding.
