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.
The fizz has nearly all gone
Work is in the last stages at our project in Ruislip of the former soft drinks factory. The building demolition has been completed. We are currently removing the slab, foundations and some 'bad boy' concrete pads. Crushing will start next week.

Our site supervisor Ross Evans and his site team have worked very hard on this project, so well done to them.
