Building Demolition to a Domestic Property in Winchester

At the end of 2020, RJS Waste management was contracted to assist with a building demolition in Kingsworthy, Winchester. With offices located in West Sussex and Oxfordshire, our experienced demolition workers were perfectly placed either side of this Hampshire-based job.

Here’s a look at the demolition work of the residential property carried out over a couple of weeks by RJS Waste Management. We managed a team of building contractors, asbestos operatives, architects, insurance loss adjusters, forensic experts and crane hire operatives. Our customers were delighted with the speed and efficiency of our safe and hassle-free building demolition service.

The family home had suffered significant fire damage so, before the forensic team could go in or any demolition work could start, we were called in to do a demolition risk assessment. to ensure a thoroughly safe working environment.

With the fire exposing the roof’s steel work, the structure was at risk of collapse and a danger to the neighbouring properties.

Our first step onsite was to erect scaffolding to protect the adjacent properties for the duration of the building demolition and strip out works.

We also made sure that suitable safeguarding was installed to the block-paved driveway to protect it from any possible damage caused by heavy machinery and equipment involved in the work.

The second stage of the work was to remove the steel work by hot cutting. We used a cherry picker to enable operatives to reach the steels safely with the cutting equipment and a crane to support the steel work while it was cut. The crane then helped us to lower the cut steel sections safely to ground level.

A mechanical excavator enabled our team to remove the remaining structure. And all demolition waste was placed in skips before being transferred for safe transportation and disposal offsite.

As the building demolition was carried out in a quiet residential cul-de-sac, we ensured there was minimal disturbance to the neighbouring properties.

This was achieved by liaising with the residents prior to starting the demolition works so they were fully informed of the schedule and what to expect.
