Taylor's Yard redevelopment - demolition day!

With planning now in place, D-day has finally arrived. Part of the original design was to leave what was the 'old water tower' intact for conversion, however further inspection revealed the tower to be structurally unsafe. The decision was then made to take whole block down to the foundation level. But first we had to install an engineered scaffold support system.

Once we got underway the whole process took around three weeks. Then followed a period of making good the existing foundations, ready for the next stage.
