Demolition Scaffolding Services

Inner City Scaffolding work with many of the top demolition contractors in London and the South East. Our work covers a vast range of intricate complex demolition, dismantling and deconstruction projects. These projects are often located in inner city locations where space is limited.  Our work includes scaffolding protection and support for the duration of the demolition process.

Scaffolding services for the demolition process

The demolition of a building brings major hazards especially when the building or structure is located close to other buildings and live working environments. The type of demolition scaffolding we provide is dictated by the contractors chosen method of demolition which often means a full encapsulation of the building incorporating dust and falling debris measures.

With most demolition work a degree of asbestos removal invariably takes place and we can provide licensed scaffolding in conjunction with our sister company Inner City Environmental.

Building encapsulation for top down demolition

With many local authorities carrying out major  redevelopments of large housing estates
it involves the demolition of high rise tower blocks. These blocks are often very close to each other and therefore space around them is often restricted.

Therefore the usual method of demolition is 'top down'. This involves demolishing the building floor by floor. Inner City will provide full building encapsulation covered in monarflex or debris netting. Debris fans and anti climb measures are incorporated.  

Protection screens and temporary propping

Where conventional demolition takes place close to live environments, buildings, roads and railways,  Inner City will install support scaffolding or protection screens.

We also provide propping for temporary support of sections of buildings and structures until building work can take place.
