Goody were contracted to carry out Parsons North enabling works, which included the demolition of a redundant basement car-park to facilitate a six storey building with 60no residential units (19 of which are affordable housing), a small commercial space and replacement car parking.
The demolition area is in close proximity of Parsons Tower which is a residential block. Also in close proximity opposite Parsons North site are residents at Hall Place Road and Little Venice Medical Centre. The new homes created as part of the development will form part of the council’s goal to deliver 1,850 new affordable homes by 2023.
Over the seven months that Goody demolition were on site, we coordinated with Westminster City Council, Transport for London, local residents and business owners, as well as a number of specialist subcontractors (including our associate company Truecut Diamond Drilling to safely and efficiently deliver the project with minimal disruption to the surrounding area.
Our works included; erecting fencing and creating an exclusion zone, preparation and amendments to the foundations, and installation of temporary propping, hard demolition utilising a 30-tonne excavator fitted with non-percussive elements as well as secant wall enabling works.
