Times House off to a great start (Site Progress)

Our project in Wapping is now underway with what is going to be a successful working relationship between Downwell and St George.

Times House Site Progress

Our Times House project in Wapping is off to a great start with site progress moving on swiftly. Following initial site setup we are now commencing with scaffold erection and various elements of internal enabling works.

Demolition is due to commence once the temporary steel supports have been erected throughout the floors of the building. Once these have been completed the building will be suitably supported to allow for the sections of facade and the concrete slabs to be removed.

We have appointed Prime Safety to complete our external safety audits. This is in addition to our own H&S audits that will be completed weekly. Prime Safety have been appointed to provide us with advice on any H&S issues we may have and to monitor our performance on site.

"The project involves taking the building back to the structural core to allow for redevelopment. The project is part of a major redevelopment of the area for which Downwell are extremely excited to be a part of "

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Statement - Wednesday 25th March

The Prime Minister’s announcement on Monday evening signalled the introduction of more stringent restrictions on us all and has specifically indicated that members of the public should only leave their home for very limited purposes. The message indicates that we should travel to and from work, only where this is absolutely necessary.

The management of the Downwell Group of companies which includes: Downwell Demolition, Inner City Environmental and Inner City Scaffolding has very carefully considered both the meaning and the spirit of the Prime Minister’s statement and whilst there has been some clarification from government subsequently that building sites could continue to operate, we came to the very clear decision yesterday that it was necessary for us, as a responsible contractor, to safely and securely close down our operational sites as soon as reasonably possible. Doing so will assist in maintaining the wellbeing of our customers, employees, sub-contractors, suppliers and the wider communities within which we build.

All sites have been closed down in a safe and secure manner and will remain closed until further notice.

We would like to take this opportunity of thanking all the key workers on the frontline who are continiung working for the good of us all.
