Freeley Completes Demolition Of Seaside Town Landmark - continued

Due to the location, dust and noise were also restricted. The contractors carefully monitored noise and dust level to ensure that they remained within permitted limits at all times.

Also, the buildings were attached to an historic and listed former cinema, now a Wetherspoon pub called The Picture House.

From start to site clearance, the contract took 12 weeks and required up to 15 people on site at peak.

ollowing demolition and clearance work, the 2,000 m² site was fenced off, leaving it ready for redevelopment.
More than 98 per cent of the materials removed from the site were recycled for re-use in future construction projects, including 125 tonnes of wood and timber, 70,000 bricks, 20 tonnes of steel, 10 tonnes of light iron and 1,800 tonnes of hardcore.

J Freeley’s managing director John Freeley (pictured opposite page) said: “Our experience in dealing with schemes of a complex nature meant we were fully capable of tackling the challenges presented by this project, including the presence of hazardous materials, the location of the site and the listed building next door.

“We were delighted to complete the project for the local authority, which will hopefully help to breathe new life into a popular resort.”

The next phase for the site will see council officials prepare a development brief and invite proposals for schemes which could include shops, homes, offices or leisure amenities.

Vehicle mounted platforms boost cross-sector solutions

Nationwide Platforms has taken delivery of a range of new vehicle mounted platforms to support the cross-sector work of its customers.

More than 25 van mounted platforms have been introduced to the UK fleet, including 12.5 and 14 metre models.

These include a number of high specification Versalift units on Iveco chassis. These 16.5 metre models feature reversing cameras, side and bucket working lights, full internal racking, and hot and cold hand wash features.

Designed to provide highly manoeuvrable and effective access solutions in even busy or awkward locations, these vehicle mounted access platforms are often highly utilised for ongoing maintenance or long term project tasks.

Nationwide Platforms has also taken delivery of four new truck mounted platforms from Ruthmann (pictured).
