This project was executed directly for London Borough of Barking and Dagenham and fell under the requirements of the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007, with 777 acting as Principal Contractor and LB B&D as CDM Coordinator.
The project involved the completion of a full Asbestos survey and Asbestos removal followed by demolition and site clearance of one 15 storey plus two 7 storey residential tower blocks, acting as Principal Contractor directly for London Borough of Barking & Dagenham.
Works included extensive Asbestos surveying and removal, termination of all mains services including external lighting systems, the provision of hoarding to exclude third parties as well as providing temporary roads and vehicle access gates. 777 provided a fully resourced team to execute the contract including structural, scaffolding and temporary works engineers, Asbestos surveyors and removal staff, service engineers and demolition staff.
The multi-storey building was initially soft stripped with the materials removed from the building utilising an external scaffold chute to the top of the building, then the building was systematically demolished utilising one of the 777’s Super High Reach machines in accordance with the detailed demolition plan. The Site Waste Management plan identified all recyclable materials would be directed to the 777 Recycling facilities in Croydon.

How we made a difference
On completion of the CDM Notifications, the project commenced with a Letter drop to all affected residents and businesses. This was followed up via the local Resident’s Liaison Officer.
Planning of the demolition process included the requirements of the following:
- IGE/SR/18 - Safe working practices to ensure the integrity of gas pipelines and associated installations
- BAPA Network rail agreements.
The high rise building was systematically demolished utilising one of the 777’s Super High Reach machines in accordance with the detailed demolition plan, without the need for scaffolding, which allowed 777 to conduct the demolition quickly, cost-effectively and safely.
