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.
