Commencing in September 2017, we started contract works at the ‘Southmere site’ on Harrow Manor Way, Bexley. As part of this contract, we were employed to remove an existing pile of crushed material. After testing we determined that we eventually moved over 5000m3 of material!
We also demolished the Yarnton Way footbridge over Manor Way, implementing road closures and working closely with Bexley Council. Finally, we were tasked with demolishing the former Thamesmead library and maisonettes including all associated external walkways, staircases and ramps while taking extreme care of existing services.
Goody Demolition completed the demolition of the former Thamesmead Library and Yarnton Way Footbridge. The package also involved breaking out the designated MUGA pitch, removal of existing crushed concrete in the stockpiles and the subsequent removal of the slab, foundations, pile caps and piles.
The works also required us to organise footpath closures, pedestrian diversions, road closures, traffic diversions, diversion and relocation of services, closing off public areas, relocating garage tenants, erecting of propping, crash decks and protection scaffold.
