The Greaves Hotel is being redeveloped to create 54 one- and two-bedroom assisted living apartments.
Complete Demolition has designed and installed a facade retention scheme to retain the existing listed stone front and side elevations. Retaining the historical facade was a condition of planning permission.
Prior to the demolition phase of the works all the hazardous asbestos-containing materials were removed under licensed and controlled conditions and the building was soft-stripped of materials including carpets and furniture.
The demolition works are being carried out on a top down basis by hand, aided by two 30-tonne excavators fitted with specialist demolition attachments. The concrete basement slab will also be removed ready for the construction phase and a piling matt formed ready for the new construction process.
In line with company policy, Complete Demolition is aiming to recycle 100% of the demolition waste from the project.
Pictured below is how the hotel looked before Complete Demolition set to work.
