St Michaels Square, Croydon

A large project in the centre of Croydon to demolish a parade of shops. The work involved Facade retention to the Victorian front.

Demolition in Croydon

A section of the victorian facade on this project had to be retained.  A tramline ran the length of the facade and for this reason, the support propping had to be installed by a specialist scaffolding company.

A shared access agreement had to be put in place for the building to the right-hand side of the facade. To carry out the demolition and facade retention scaffolding had to be supported from an alleyway used by occupants of the building.

A tunnel with protection above was incorporated within the designs for those using the alleyway. Regular communication was important with the residents of the building throughout the demolition process due to the closeness to the works. Demolition work was carried out using hand demolition techniques on this aspect of the work.

There was also a basement behind the facade that had to be propped as part of the works. This was backfilled.

96% of materials from the site were recycled for this demolition in this Demolition in Croyden project.
