Our Projects

Project Overview

Principal Contractor        AR Demolition Ltd
Volume of Site 8,663.69 m² 
Volume of Waste 99.99% Recycled

Key Work Activities

  • Demolition of the existing five storeys, split level car-park, bus station and link bridge removal to allow for the site redevelopment.
  • Elements of the structure were in a significant state of deterioration, debris protection and dust management were critical to protecting the public  It was a lengthy project in the heart of Nottingham City Centre and traffic management around the ring road was planned meticulously to prevent traffic congestion. 

Project Description

Using an innovative approach, AR set about the plan to address and mitigate the aspects of completing the project without any adverse impact for the client. From stakeholder liaison to management of environmental emissions, AR applied out of the box thinking to provide a robustly planned and collaborative project.

Key Challenges

It was recognised from the early offset that the project was required to be undertaken with due regard to the sensitivity of the local community, local council, client and Intu.

AR's Aim was to deliver the project with minimal impact to the live shops beneath the car park in addition to the shopping centre, ring road, tram line, law courts, cafes, restaurants and solicitors offices adjacent to the demolition site. With nature and risks associated inner-city redevelopment, environmental emissions and all normal aspects of demolition projects (such as waste movements, dust & vibration) were going to need robust controls.

Key Health and Safety Risks

  • The bus station concourse and associated premises were located at ground level with the car-park on the remaining floors.
  • The structure was surrounded by local authority roads on all sides and was connected to the adjacent Broadmarsh shopping centre at several locations and levels via a series of footbridges and subways

Working alongside key stakeholders, we completed the demolition of the car park without a noise or dust complaint. Given that the location of the site was a highly populated city centre, our innovative approach and cutting-edge technology ensured the project was completed to timescale.
