Demolition is not all big machines

Sometimes it’s slow and possibly painful.

Today several workers from Gill Demolition were taking down the wall at the front of the house, brick by brick. Although plenty shattered they are trying to save as many as possible and this means taking it down by hand. Salvage value of old bricks like these is about £300 per pallet and whether they will be sold or used to repair other walls they’re worth keeping:

The area opposite the house has now been pretty much cleared of buildings and the small brick retaining wall has been removed. A stone crusher has been used to break down stone and concrete so a large pile of this rubble, seen behind the portacabin, is now ready to be used as needed during the construction period.

Gill Demolition will be removing piles of waste back to their depot for recycling.
