Glasgow city centre demolition for Burnfield

June 14, 2011

Argyle Street, Glasgow is one of the UK’s busiest shopping precincts and is currently the project destination for a 8 storey office block hand demolition project being completed by Burnfield Demolition for the client NFU Mutual Insurance Society Ltd.

Being situated in the city centre means that safety is paramount due to the high numbers of general public passing below in the surrounding streets and the immediate proximity of operational, adjacent buildings presents a number of hazards. Other problems include creating a safe access point for deliveries and ensuring the general public can also access offices, bars and shops which remained open during the demolition.

The specialist scaffolding was erected by a local contractor Clyde Scaffolding Ltd who are highly experienced in dealing with projects of this scale.
