BAFTA Winning Potential in Demolition

After 8 days Travis House was no more more! Ferguson House firmly in our sights and vanishing fast and all under the watchful eye of a documentary film crew………No pressure!

BAFTA Winning Demolition from the Downwell Group

As soon as our high reach machine started tearing into Travis House we knew it would not be long until there was only a pile of hardcore left and after 8 days it is now a reality. Our expert high reach operator Matthew Stevens made it fall as if it were a dolls house. If this isn’t a BAFTA winning performance I don’t know what is.

If the pressure of our Managing Director Matt Phillips watching over his shoulder was not enough he also had to give several interviews to the film crew that have been on site over the past week filming for a new television series.

We were approached by a film crew from Middlechild Productions who are making a documentary about large scale and interesting demolition projects around the world. We were more than happy to invite them to one of our projects so that they can film Downwell at their best.

They have now filmed several sessions on site now completing a mixture of filming, photography and interviews with our own industry experts.

The documentary is called “The Demolition Man” and is to air in the spring 2016 on a new Freeview channel called Insight.

Downwell certainly delivered a BAFTA Winning Demolition performance.

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.
