Downwell scramble and react to DIY SOS

The Downwell Group will always give our support to worthwhile causes where practical. We received a call from DIY SOS and were delighted to scramble some of our workforce and provide help.


Once again the Downwell Group Team were able to give support to Nick Knowles and his DIY SOS team yesterday in sunny Kent. Previously Inner City Scaffolding had provided scaffolding to the programme.

This time we carried out an asbestos survey of the property through Inner City Environmental where the work was to take place. The asbestos survey revealed that no asbestos was present so removal work was not necessary. Inner City would have carried out the work should it have been detected.

Three of our demolition team along with project coordinator Matthew High were on site yesterday to carry demolition works at the property. It was great to see all the other contractors who also turned up on-site to lend their support to a deserving family.

There was a real togetherness between the workers, and there was plenty of tea, coffee and refreshments supplied by the programme to keep everyone going. Canteen facilities were installed on a nearby green area.

Nick Knowles was very hands-on and involved in the project, which was great to see. The programme will be aired later in the year where the full details about the family will be revealed.

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.
