Pollard St, Ancoats

Complete Demolition completed works onsite at Pollard St, Ancoats, Manchester. Acting as Principal Contractor on the project, Complete Demolition demolished a derelict 3 storey building which stood just 25m from a metro link station, on a busy pedestrian street.

Prior to demolition, an ecologist carried out a bat survey.  The building was then cleared of guano and asbestos which was removed under fully controlled conditions. To ensure the building was demolished safely, the front and side elevations were partially taken down by hand before a 20m high-reach demolition rig reduced the height of the building.  A 30 tonne demolition excavator demolished the rest of the building.  Working in line with company policy, over 90% of the demolition waste was diverted from landfill.
