Howe Barracks Demolition Works confirmed

We are delighted to announce that we have secured the Demolition Works at Howe Barracks Canterbury for Taylor Wimpey

The second quarter of 2017 looks to be an extremely busy time for Downwell Demolition and the Downwell Group as a whole.

This is the first major project that we will carry out for Taylor Wimpey.

The Barracks are located in Canterbury and the site has a large array of building types that will be demolished to make way for a new housing estate.

The existing Barracks was constructed on this site in the 1930’s but the immediate area has had several army barracks built going back to 1795.

Currently Asbestos Surveys are being carried out by Inner City Environmental.

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.
