Our Story

The story

Enabling works specialists

General Demolition first began in the 1970s. We started as a small team of specialists helping to demolish remaining air raid shelters and structures from the war. Then followed many turbulent years, with economic recessions and climate disasters taking toll on the built environment. General Demolition grew to be known as the helping hand, providing the works needed to progress and rebuild. 

With over forty years’ experience, General Demolition is now a leading enabling works provider in London and the surrounding areas. We have had the privilege to work on famous buildings, streets rich with history and exciting new city developments. We are proud of the part we play in enabling the future of the built environment. 

After opening the environmental resource park in 1995, our focus on recycling grew stronger. Recycling quickly became a part of the company’s core values. General Demolition always strive for the most sustainable methods of demolition and business practices.
