Our Approach

A key part of C&D’s role is helping clients gain a greater understanding of the demolition process. A good example of this is the care taken when helping design an ‘exclusion zone’ prior to the controlled explosive demolition of a tower block.

C&D Consultancy help to implement BS:6187-2011 which is the code of practice for full and partial demolition. We aim to help clients understand the management of the demolition process for maintaining structural stability through the use of temporary works where required.

We enable clients to establish responsibilities during all phases of the demolition process, along with managing the environmental issues and health and safety hazards. Our role to the client through the use of BS:6187-2011, is the recommendations for methods of, and techniques for, demolition and partial demolition, through the use of traditional and innovative methods.

The British Standard prescribes an exclusion zone but beyond the zone is the presence of neighbouring houses, underground services, railway lines, roads, rivers or other potential obstructions – all key considerations.

When we walk an exclusion zone ‘perimeter’ with a client, it often takes several hours, because as a team, we understand the key considerations such as, road diversions, rail closures, evacuation with relocation of people and their pets, air traffic control concerns, police support on the ground and in the air and perimeter security. There are so many things that need to be considered, prior to a demolition contractor starting on the site.
