Newmonthill, Forfar

A large demolition project on the Forfar housing estate comprised of 5 4-storey blocks and ancillary structures. The Asbestos product removed by a specialist contractor was managed on site by the contract management team. The standard, conventional remote mechanical demolition work itself was of no problem to Forth Demolition however a specialist high reach excavator was required to reach the tops of the blocks before the standard demolition excavators continued the works. The foundations, to remain in place as the client, Angus council had decided to rebuild of the existing foundations giving an additional obstacle to the contract. Other challenges came from the close proximity to the public during the works and the threat of ground slippage which had proven to be a historic problem at the north end of the site.

What we did
  • Demolition (mechanical remote)
  • Internal Soft Strip
  • Demolition (high-reach remote)
  • Hand Reduction Works
  • Asbestos Removal Management
  • Site Clearance
  • Crushing
  • Working near the public

Gateway Theatre, Edinburgh

The careful demolition of 3 buildings which made up the Gateway Theatre on Elm Row proved to be an extremely technical contract with several styles of demolition within the one site. The standard, conventional remote mechanical demolition work itself was of no problem to Forth Demolition, and its expert team selected for the project handled the hand demolition and separation works as Building A was connected to the neighbouring tenement buildings and Building B was within close proximity to a neighbouring building on both Eastern and Southern elevations with professionalism and speed. The Asbestos product removed by a specialist contractor and managed on site by the contract management team where removed without incident.
