Winsford Civic Hall, Cheshire

Demolition and asbestos removal works were undertaken at Winsford Civic Hall in Cheshire.  The project was the first framework contract undertaken for Cheshire West & Chester Council with Complete Demolition acting as Principal Contractor.  The works involved the erection of a designed timber hoarding, full scaffolding, removal of asbestos, road and footpath closures, demolition and remediation works.

The demolition design required part of the building to be demolished using a 18m high-reach demolition rig and as a result part of the A54 and public footpath were closed and a full traffic and public diversion/management system was installed.  The remainder of the buildings were demolished using two 30 tonne excavators fitted with specialist demolition attachments.
