Decommissioning

Scott Hughes Design has been involved in the decommissioning, deconstruction and demolition of a variety of structures including multi-storey towers, heavy industrial plants and steel works, acting as contract administrators and structural engineers working on behalf of the end client.

Scott Hughes Design can therefore advise on appropriate demolition techniques, review proposed demolition methods and sequences and give an independent opinion on their validity and safety.

Our structural engineers can also produce outline or detailed method statements and risk assessments for a variety of existing buildings and structures, particularly for refurbishment schemes, party wall situations and complex structural forms.

In addition, our structural engineers can produce structural survey reports and feasibility studies, considering alternative demolition options. Scott Hughes Design can also work with demolition contractors to develop safe and efficient collapse mechanisms, advise on pre-weakening options and provide advice on temporary works.
