Ron Hull Title Bar fade
Project: Asbestos Removal & Demolition
Client: GB Building Solutions Ltd
Location: Shorehead Building, Huddersfield University, Queensgate, Huddersfield
Date: July - November 2012

Ron Hull Demolition are proud to announce that they have secured and completed a contract for a major new Client for the Asbestos Removal and Demolition of the Shorehead Building, located on the University Main Campus within the centre of Huddersfield.

The complex nature of the site provided RHDL with numerous challenges both within the initial planning stage of the project and as the work progressed. 

Following an extensive asbestos strip, including the removal of licensable materials, the building was soft stripped back to its shell, in preparation for demolition. Before demolition, stringent precautionary measures were installed to prevent damaging a large underground service duct that extended along the periphery of the Shorehead Building supplying the surrounding University campus.

The Brunswick Building, a Grade II listed Structure and occupied throughout the entirety of the works, is located approximately 4 meters away from the site. To mitigate risk the North East corner of the Shorehead Building was demolished remotely using a Brokk machine following a vigorous investigation by a Structural Engineer to ascertain floor weight loadings and the need for temporary works which were installed before start. 

A key feature of paramount importance was our ability throughout the 14 week duration of the contract to implement a robust Traffic Management Regime to negate the effect of our works on the adjacent A629 which we accomplished to the satisfaction of all concerned. 

The remainder of the structure was demolished by high reach demolition machine. Following demolition floor slabs and foundations were removed and the materials processed on site through the company mobile crushing facility. 

Commercial & public building demolitions by Ron Hull Ltd – Experts in recycling, remarking & waste management, we are Yorkshire’s leading demolition contractors

 Public buildings are often by necessity placed close to vital local amenities and infrastructure. They often intersect with residential areas, busy commercial areas, and contain a high density of utilities. Demolition in such an environment comes with its own unique challenges, and may be affected by strict deadlines based on commercial or public use of these nearby spaces. Equally, different buildings have different purposes and each project might come with a unique list of requirements. The last thing residents, service users, local authorities and clients want is for the project to indirectly disrupt the community.

 Ron Hull Ltd have the expertise, based in decades of experience, to carefully balance the need for a dynamic, efficient, cost-effective demolition process with the demands of operating in a modern urban setting. For over two decades we have undertaken complex demolition projects that often have required our planners, managers, operators and technicians to go above and beyond for the sake of a job well done. We regularly earn praise from clients who have seen what we do, and the extra steps we take to ensure projects are finished, not just on time and under budget, but in line with the highest standards of professional excellence.
