Brown & Lenox
This contract was carried out for R M Vidler Ltd. The project called for the demolition down to slab level of the former Brown & Lennox Chain Factory in Pontypridd, Wales. Apart from the usual Health & Safety issues that come with demolition, this site had been continuously targeted by robbers whom had started to cut the supporting legs of the building making it very unsafe. There was also the problem of Japanese Knot weed across the site which had to be left undisturbed and treated throughout.
We overcame these problems by staying on site in Bunkabins so we could control the site 24 hours a day. A long reach machine was then brought in with a shear attachment so the structure could be cut down safely.
A very nice contract apart from the constant down pour of rain.
