10 Months


Northbank were appointed to carry out the demolition of a twelve/thirteen storey reinforced concrete redundant office block located in city centre of Manchester.  The site is restricted due to the City centre location and bound on all elevations with public highways and a construction site. The scheme is currently live and nearing completion. Prior to the main demolition a full soft strip was undertaken whilst the building was being scaffolded and fully sheeted to prevent debris falling outside of the site area once the mechanical demolition progressed. The basement is to be fully excavated and backfilled with crush up to ground level in engineered layers so as to form a pile mat for  the Main Contractor.
