Video Exclusive – Maylarch on site of deadly blast…

Demolition contractors aids emergency services after explosion.

On Tuesday 14 February, an as-yet-unexplained explosion ripped trough a three-storey residential block at Osney Mill in Oxford.

Emergency services quickly determined that a local man – Guido Schuette – had likely perished in the blast that levelled the block in which he lived, and which damaged similar blocks on either side.

Demolition crews from Maylarch were summoned to check the condition of the two neighbouring blocks before recovery works could begin in earnest. Today (Sunday) police confirmed that human remains had been discovered on the site.

Demolition TV will be covering this story in greater depth in the next episode. But for now we have compiled this brief film.

Video – Water tower felled…

Hot cutting downs New Jersey landmark.

The team at Catco Demolition have carried out the demolition of the water tower that for decades stood sentinel over the town of Montville in New Jersey.

And the process was captured on the drone video below:

Video – It’s not just Big Brother watching…

Demolition man filmed driving while on mobile phone.

We have previously reported on health and safety prosecutions arising from smart phone footage recorded by “concerned locals” and of health and safety inspections being triggered by “innocent” drone footage of bad demolition practice being posted online.

So it was perhaps inevitable that someone would eventually film a demolition man driving whilst on his mobile phone.

Driving while using a mobile phone is unquestionably dangerous, and is behaviour we most certainly do not condone. And, in the age of hands-free kits available on Amazon for the price of a sandwich, this really is wholly avoidable.

But you also have to question the kind of person that (a) films this in the first place and (b) goes to the trouble of posting it online.

Video – Wring goes back to school…

Drone captures last days of Alabama’s “super mall”.

Madison Square Mall was the largest enclosed shopping centre in Huntsville, Alabama encompassing over 86,399.2 square metres.

In late January 2017, the mall permanently closed after 32 years of operation. Demolition of the former mall began on 6 February 2017 and is making good progress if this excellent drone video is anything to go by:

Youngster gets work underway at Westferry Printworks

Westferry Printworks owner Northern & Shell and development manager Mace today commenced demolition of Westferry Printworks in London’s Docklands, paving the way for a vibrant new waterfront neighbourhood just minutes from Canary Wharf.  Richard Desmond, founder and owner of Northern & Shell, together with his wife Joy and son Valentine, were on site for the proceedings and took the opportunity to pose with an excavator from Erith Contractors (and a rather smaller one).
The Westferry Printworks development received planning consent in August 2016. The 15 acre site will provide over 700 new private and affordable homes which will be available to buy or rent.  The development is being designed with lifestyle at its heart, and will become a place where people will want to live, work and spend quality time. 

Residents and locals alike will benefit from beautiful open spaces and waterside walks, two new parks and a new south facing dockside waterfront promenade. They will be able to enjoy an exciting mix of independent, restaurants, bars and shops, great sporting facilities, a new community centre and crèche, healthcare amenities, a cultural ‘hub’ and a new 1,200 space secondary school.

Video – Earl’s Court eviscerated…

Time-lapse captures precision demolition of former exhibition and concert venue.

For anyone that attended the Ideal Home Exhibition, the London Boat Show, Crufts Dog Show (before it relocated) and for generations of concert-goers (I saw the late, great George Michael there as recently as 2012), Earl’s Court exhibition centre was the go-to destination. But amidst lengthy and vocal protests from local residents, the exhibition centre is no more.

UK demolition giant Keltbray carried out the demolition works, as this pair of vides shows:

Shell submits Brent decommissioning plans…

End of oil production could provide massive windfall for UK demolition sector.

Royal Dutch Shell has submitted a plan to the British government for dismantling its Brent North Sea production platforms, a turning point for the UK oil industry as operators face the huge challenge of gradually abandoning depleted fields after 40 years of production.

Shell lodged the plans for decommissioning production at the huge Brent field, which lends its name to the globally traded benchmark crude oil grade and which has produced over 3 billion barrels of oil equivalent since 1976. The government has in turn invited public responses to Shell’s proposals over the coming 60 days, a longer consultation period than usual because the decommissioning programme is so complex. It will then analyse the feedback and subsequently decide whether to approve the plan.

“Any decommissioning plan will be carefully considered by the government, taking into account environmental, safety and cost implications, the impact on other users of the sea and a public consultation,” a spokesman for the government’s department of business, energy and industrial strategy said.

Shell will start the programme this year by removing the 24,200 tonne topside of the Brent Delta platform, a process which was already approved two years ago. following Delta’s cessation of production in 2011.

Companies operating in UK waters need to dismantle around 7,500 kilometres of pipelines and more than 100 platforms at an estimated cost of £17.6 billion by 2025, according to industry body Oil & Gas UK.
