A British demolition firm has been awarded a contract to dismantle a series of gas containers in Battersea in London.
One of them set to be demolished by Coleman and Company is situated only a few metres away from the Victoria underground line and is equivalent to a 40-storey building in height.
The firm said the contract has helped boost its order book to more than £12 million.
Mark Coleman, Managing Director of Coleman and Company said: “In recent years we have focused on developing some unique skills to tackle the most challenging demolition tasks. For example, our approach to dismantling highly flammable gas holders has been recognised worldwide and this month we are presenting in Milan at the EDA (European Demolition Association) on the topic.”
The project starts later this year and is expected to take more than 12 months to complete.
