Nelson can undertake demolition either as an integral part of a larger package or as a specialist service. We regularly recycle material for reuse on the project, not only saving costs but reducing the impact on the environment.

In the increasingly technical and legislative world of modern demolition works, only the best staff training and most appropriate equipment will allow the contractor to complete their works safely, within programme and on budget. Nelson’s demolition training is continuous and directed at all personnel who are involved in the demolition process. For equipment, Nelson can call on the wide resources of our own haulage and plant operations to supply the correct machinery for each individual project.

If you are looking for full site clearance or assistance in site redevelopment, the Nelson Group has all the experience and resources to carry this out professionally and cost-effectively.
