Freeley Completes Demolition Of Seaside Town Landmark

Contractor J Freeley’s demolition of an eyesore has paved the way for the redevelopment of a key regeneration site in the north Wales resort of Colwyn Bay.

Manchester-based Freeley demolished the former market hall and neighbouring empty shops after landing the contract with Conwy County Borough Council following a competitive tender.

The council and the Welsh government bought the site in 2012 as part of the Bay Life+ regeneration project, which involves the purchase of buildings of strategic significance to Colwyn Bay’s future.

Freeley’s work involved removing asbestos from the 19th century, four-storey building and making the structure safe with propping before demolition could begin. This was done by hand from scaffolding and elevating work platforms. With the ‘sensitive’ material safely removed, demolition took place using conventional tracked excavators equipped with grabs and pulverizers.

The demolition itself had to be carefully planned, as the site lies on Princes Drive, which runs through the town centre, and near the busy A55 and a railway line.

Complex traffic management issues had to be addressed, including the provision of temporary traffic lights and careful phasing of heavy goods site traffic to avoid congestion and disruption in the town centre. The contractors were also restricted to transporting material off site. This could only be done at off-peak times.
