Case Studies
Bridge Demolition - Abbey Wood

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.

Holland Lane East Bridge Demolition

Econ was called in to demolish the Holland Lane East road bridge, which passes over the railway tracks on the Oxted to Edenbridge line. Because of the need to minimise disruption to train services Econ were allowed a 52 hour window of access to the rail and road site and immediate surroundings.

TFL Rolling Stock Disposal

Econ was retained to dismantle and dispose of redundant rolling stock for a number of TfL’s rail subsidiaries, as part of the company’s vital programme of network upgrading and modernisation.

We found Econ to be talented and professional. We recently employed them to undertake some regeneration work to help us prepare for the building of our new Queen Elizabeth II Centre. Our experience of working with them was excellent. They were conscientious and efficient when working to a tight deadline and we have no hesitation recommending them for other projects.
I have worked with Econ on many projects within London Underground and Network Rail infrastructure. Econ have always been very proactive in their approach to the projects and have worked collaboratively with my teams from the very early stages. I would definitely recommend them to others
