Phase 4 of Heathside & Lethbridge Project

Phase 4 of a large scale regeneration project in Lewisham is about to restart after a brief delay due to planning.

Phase 4a & 4b of Large regeneration in Lewisham

Phase 4 of a major regeneration project in Lewisham is about to restart following a brief delay caused by planning. This large scale demolition project is another partnership between Downwell and Ardmore and is the second second large project being completed for them at the same time (the other being Sutton Point)

We were on site in the summer to complete the asbestos removal and soft strip of Travis & Ferguson House. At the time the third block, Melville House was still occupied and waiting to be decanted into the new block.

After a brief period off site whilst planning was being finalised Melville House is now being soft stripped in preparation of being demolished by high reach in the coming weeks.

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.
