As building land becomes increasingly short in supply, the requirement for the redevelopment of existing buildings and the surrounding open space has become very important. As a leading demolition and enabling contractor, we have to be sure that detailed surveys for potential associated environmental hazards are available.

These are typically (ACM's) Asbestos Containing Materials found in the fabric of the buildings and contaminates in the surrounding land.

At Downwell in conjunction with our group company Inner City Environmental can provide a complete service to deal with these important issues.

The full range of Asbestos removal and Environmental Services provided by the Downwell Group through Inner City Environmental are:

Asbestos Surveying

The key to managing Asbestos is to identify the location, type, condition and extent of any ACMs by carrying out a survey. The survey must be and should be one of two types:

  • Management Survey 
  • Refurbishment and Demolition Survey

Asbestos Removal and Encapsulation

Inner City will provide you with a professional asbestos removal and encapsulation service for licensed and non-licensed ACM’s on small to large scale projects. It is not always necessary to remove Asbestos, the alternative is encapsulation, and this can be a more cost-effective method.

Environmental Monitoring

Inner City can provide environmental monitoring by their in-house technical specialist, offering advice and consultancy in monitoring techniques and applications. They will advise on equipment selection and offer a broad range of solutions that not only comply with current standards but are also extremely cost-effective.

Environmental Cleaning

Inner City can tackle a diverse spectrum of projects from rubbish removal, void property remediation to entirely stripping, removing pigeon guano, sweeps for needles and sharps and elimination of human/animal waste.

In response to the Coronavirus Inner City can also carry out Infection Control as part of  environmental cleaning services.

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.
