CASE STUDIES
CASE STUDY:

Bridge Demolition - Abbey Wood

Services: Bridge demolition; waste and environmental management; site mobilisation and demobilisation; protection of working culvert; road traffic management.

Project duration: Bank holiday weekend

Summary: Econ was commissioned to demolish and clear a concrete footbridge spanning a four lane highway. Timing was critical to ensure that disruption to traffic and local residents was kept to a minimum. Working ‘round the clock’ over a four day weekend period the Econ team successfully demolished and disposed of a large concrete structure in a controlled, efficient and safe operation. A carefully planned convoy approach ensured that all waste material was removed and recycled in the most environmentally friendly way possible.

Staffing requirements: Careful and detailed planning was essential and the works were overseen and coordinated by one of our highly experienced project managers. Key staff included demolition technicians, and a team of waste removal and recycling operatives. By using our own material recycling facilities and pre-selected and vetted sites we were able to clear a large quantity of waste arising from the demolition over the four day period.

Equipment/Plant Used: 1 x 35t 360 Excavator with a Concrete Cruncher attachment, 3 x 23t 360 Excavators with Breaker and Grab attachments, 1 x 15t 360 Excavator with Selecta Grab attachment and 1 x 360 Telehandler.
