Bridge Demolition Contractor

Bridge demolition consultancy

Network Rail (in its previous incarnations) has engaged our services on particularly sensitive projects such as the clean up operation after the disaster at St John`s Wood in London when a brick multi arch bridge collapsed prematurely during demolition, causing fatalities.

Our team attended site, made the structure safe and removed all the resultant rubble before returning the site to a safe condition to the client.

On another occasion, we had to attend site and clean up after a concrete building collapsed on two workers, following vibration from a passing train.

Latterly, Andy Bolton Demolition have been employed on a consultancy basis to vet and approve proposed method statements for the demolition of  various projects including, two bridges on the A40 Western Avenue Project in West London as well as other projects at planning and budget stages.
