Reliance House: Demolition Completed

The demolition of Reliance House has been completed a week ahead of schedule by our contractor Smiths (Gloucester) Ltd.

The site will remain closed to the public until the car-park is officially opened in October 2018. We would ask people not to try to access the site during this period.

The Town Council are now reviewing the tender documents returned by potential contractors for the construction of the car-park and other associated works. The successful contractor will be announced in the coming weeks and construction will commence shortly afterwards.

Reliance House: Demolition Ongoing

The demolition of Reliance House has reached week two and progress is now quite noticeable. Most of week one was limited to works to the inside of the building with asbestos being safely removed from site and the building being stripped of any reusable materials.

The actual demolition of the building is now underway, the materials will then be crushed on site and the majority will be used to form the base layers of the car-park. This will significantly reduce the material required to be moved from the site. More »
