Work to demolish the former office building known as Capital Court is progressing ahead of schedule.
For those that haven’t passed the site recently to see the demolition, a gallery of photos is provided here. Given the proximity to the railway the demolition had to proceed with caution, with each stage carefully monitored and controlled. Large dust suppression units were also brought in to try to minimise the impact on Kew House School, particularly on the windiest days during October.
The final stage of the clearance on the Capital Court site involves the breaking up and crushing of the remaining material to level the surface and prepare it for future work. At the same time, work is continuing to clear and level the main site before sheet piling and other enabling works, that will last around three months, can take place.
Quattro, the last tenant on the site, will be leaving by the end of October to allow clear access to our development partner Be. Part of the site clearance involves the removal of any cobblestones, which will be cleaned and saved for use within the stadium development.
