Community Liaison

With over 100 years of experience by our management team in the demolition industry, Downwell Demolition offers a comprehensive range of demolition services primarily in London and the South East.

Our work is with Main Contractors, Cost and Project Management Practices, Property Developers, Architects, Structural Engineers, Civil Engineering Companies and Local Authorities.

The majority of our work is in inner-city environments where location and access continually provide us with new challenges. As a company, we learn from these, allowing us to change and improve our services continuously.

Downwell is an NFDC (National Federation of Demolition Contractors) accredited demolition contractor in Essex, meaning that we work to the highest of standards in the demolition industry. As an accredited demolition contractor in Essex, Downwell is audited consistently for health & safety combined with working methods. Our clients are always confident in appointing Downwell to carry out the most complex of demolition work.

Downwell carries out the full and part demolition of small to large buildings and structures and includes the demolition of the following:

Demolition Methods

With all our demolition projects community liaison is very important to us. We understand that anyone living or working close to a demolition project will have concerns. These are typical, noise, vibration, dust, site security and traffic movements. For this purpose, we always appoint a Community Liaison Officer to each project. Their role is to establish clear communication channels with the stakeholders of each project so that any problems can be discussed and rectified.

Recycling and Reuse of Materials

As a company, we are targeting 96% of waste materials from the site for recycling. We have invested heavily in specialist crushers and screeners to allow us to crush resultant materials and stockpile on-site for the construction phase. By doing this, it reduces lorry movements to and from the site and lowers our carbon footprint.

Demolition Advice

Downwell is always happy to discuss projects at the pre-tender stage to advise on the best working methods on the demolition, asbestos or scaffolding works involved with the project. For more information email our Business Development Director Rob Young at

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.
