Located in the heart of the Bankside area of London, along the river Thames and directly opposite the Tate Modern extension, Neo Bankside comprises 217 newly built residential units, split between four hexagonal pavilions ranging between 12 and 24 storeys, which provides its residents with generous accommodation and stunning views across London.
General Demolition were appointed to demolish the former Marketing and Sales office suite to make way for an urban garden space through the site, which extends the existing landscape from the riverside gardens outside Tate Modern through to Southwark Street.
Although the work faced some challenges due to working in a highly populated area for tourists and general members of the public, General Demolition completed the job without any problems and handed the site back to the client as a flat level site which included the trees left from former use to be re-housed in the new garden space.
Utilising progressive demolition protocol, in line with the company’s sustainability policy, the project achieved an overall score of 95% recyclability. All work carried out were injury free, on time and within budget.
