Demolitions contractor John F Hunt has secured the first phase of the £13m demolition of the Ebury Bridge housing estate in West London.

The first phase of the Pimlico 1930s housing estate demolition is valued at nearly £4m with the second phase expected to follow later. In total around eight blocks will be demolished.

These works will pave the way for Bouygues to start work on the £350m new housing scheme to be built in the shadow of the upmarket Chelsea Barracks residential scheme.

Subject to planning approval, Bouygues will commence building 758 energy-efficient homes, including at least 386 affordable homes, next year.
