With over three decades’ experience in the demolition industry, CDC has the know-how to handle even the most sensitive and potentially hazardous high-rise projects with confidence.
Our experience covers all types of high-rise projects: From those structures cast in situ and pre-cast reinforced concrete, to pre- and post-tensioned concrete and even high alumina concrete. Some of the cast in situ structures have also had their floor slabs poured onto asbestos cement permanent formwork.
Our team has been involved with the demolition of many different high rise structures throughout the United Kingdom, including:
- 8 storey office block in Broad St, London
- 16 storey office block, Ipswich
- 46 metre high concrete silos, Ipswich Docks
- 15 Storey Block of Flats in Hartcliffe, Bristol
- 5 and 7 storey car parks in Wolverhampton, Norwich and Colchester
- 50 and 75 metre high kiln in British Sugar Factories, Wissington and Ipswich
- Numerous fire station training towers throughout East Anglia
- 55 and 65 metre high steel gasholder and columns in places such Paignton, Beckton and Sunderland
Having tackled this variety of structures, we have employed many techniques, including explosive blow down, floor-by-floor methods, controlled collapse, high reach demolition excavators, cutting and crane lifting as well as temporary support of adjacent structures.
