General Demolition delivered the demolition of the old Edwardian healthcare buildings at North Middlesex Hospital to enable the modern redevelopment of the facility.
This project involved the demolition of healthcare buildings at the North Middlesex University Hospital in Edmonton, North London. This was part of a wider development scheme to modernise and improve the healthcare centre. Our enabling works allowed for the provision of a state-of-the-art A&E centre and other modern hospital buildings.
Scope of works
The demolition scope included several healthcare buildings. Firstly, the two-storey Old Doctor’s Quarters required demolition, as well as a three-storey general medical block. In addition, the programme involved two more single-storey buildings, housing the restaurant and delivery facility, and two elevated reinforced concrete access roads and ramps.
Next, General Demolition performed the bulk excavation of 30,000 cubic metres of primarily mixed, neutral and contaminant soil. To follow, pile probing, site-level reduction and the piling mat installation.
Our priority on this project was ensuring the hospital, which remained fully operational, had minimal disturbance from the works. The demolition works will enable the £118 million construction of a new main building. This building will provide state-of-the-art accident and emergency facilities, as well as diagnostics, in-patients, operating theatres and endoscopy.
By utilising our efficient waste management services, we were able to achieve a 95% recyclability rate on this project.
