Acoustic Quilts Used On Site

Party walls during pneumatic breaking are screened with acoustic quilts to reduce impact on neighbouring properties.

Acoustic Quilts

To help reduce the impact of pneumatic breaking on a neighbouring building we contacted RVRENTAVENT to help us design a strategy to ensure that the the works did not have a negative impact.

They suggested that we created an acoustic barrier using their NOAQ – Contractor Acoustic Quilts. These help to reduce the noise levels by up to 24db. They are lighweight to move around site and are just hung from a standard Heras panel.

The noise that is created during demolition works is extremely difficult to remove completely. However using this product to reduce the impact on the neighbours of our sites not only helps to reduce complaints, but shows that there are options out there to help reduce any negative impact of the site.

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.
