On the 8th November 2018, the Morrison’s superstore in Folkestone sadly caught fire and sustained damages to the roof and superstructure. Three-quarters of the building was lost. ISG were contracted by Morrison’s to rebuild the store before Christmas 2019.
The Morrisons Superstore served as an integral hub for the local community, not only as a meeting place but as an essential amenity for grocery shopping, thus the importance of reinstating the fire ravaged site could not be overstated. Goody Demolition commenced works on-site under instruction from ISG, providing a dedicated team to carry out the controlled strip-out and demolition of the remaining structure, external walls, flooring and screed. Due to the fire damage, it was necessary to carry out an initial remote enabling package, using demolition specification excavators equipped with non-percussive hydraulic attachments, to make the building safe and allow personnel to enter. All demolition arisings were crushed on-site and safely transported away for reprocessing at local recycling centres.
