Case Study

Project Name: Sutton Point
Location:Sutton Court Road, Sutton, SM1 4TY
Duration: August 2015 - August 2016
Project Value: £200,000

We were appointed to scaffold the entire 17 storey (54m high) Sutton Point tower block. The building was being demolished using the top down demolition method. The building was within 5m of Sutton Station.

Scope of Works

Encapsulate entire building with 2800m2 of tubular scaffolding. Scaffolding was then covered with Monarflex to help contain the dust during the demolition.

A debris fan was installed on the southern elevation. This was to act as additional protection for the railway line.

Incorporate scaffold into goods hoist that was installed on the east elevation.

Erect hand rails to risers and the lift shaft as the building is opened up during the demolition.

Scaffold was progressively struck as the building was reduced a floor at a time.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Statement - Wednesday 25th March

The Prime Minister’s announcement on Monday evening signalled the introduction of more stringent restrictions on us all and has specifically indicated that members of the public should only leave their home for very limited purposes. The message indicates that we should travel to and from work, only where this is absolutely necessary.

The management of the Downwell Group of companies which includes: Downwell Demolition, Inner City Environmental and Inner City Scaffolding has very carefully considered both the meaning and the spirit of the Prime Minister’s statement and whilst there has been some clarification from government subsequently that building sites could continue to operate, we came to the very clear decision yesterday that it was necessary for us, as a responsible contractor, to safely and securely close down our operational sites as soon as reasonably possible. Doing so will assist in maintaining the wellbeing of our customers, employees, sub-contractors, suppliers and the wider communities within which we build.

All sites have been closed down in a safe and secure manner and will remain closed until further notice.

We would like to take this opportunity of thanking all the key workers on the frontline who are continiung working for the good of us all.
