Squibb lands demolition deal on £220m Woolwich site

Hard demolition work will get underway this month at the Morris Walk Estate in Woolwich to signal the start of a new £220m regeneration scheme.

Development partner Lovell has appointed specialist Squibb to carry out demolition of the old 1960s council blocks.

Soft stripping has started with hard demolition on the concrete frames and precast facades beginning later this month which will take around 12 months to complete.

The six-year regeneration project will transform this area into a vibrant mixed community of over 900 one, two, three and four bedroom homes comprising a mix of houses and apartment blocks.

Construction on the main build will look to start in Autumn 2021 but is dependent on a number of factors including securing full planning permission.

The Royal Borough of Greenwich appointed Lovell in 2013 as its development partner for the £398m One Woolwich programme, which will see the company redevelop three older estates in the area.

Chris Wallace, Lovell Construction Director, said: “The demolition work is a very complex procedure which has to be carefully planned due to the height and layout of the estate, the vicinity of the rail lines and proximity of the local community.

“As usual, health and safety is our key priority and we will communicate to the local residents on a regular basis.”

Danny Thorpe, Leader of Royal Borough of Greenwich, added: “It is good news that these poor quality houses are now being demolished, paving the way for high quality homes in the future.

“The Council remains committed to doing what it can to deal with the housing crisis, and is delivering on its pledge to start 750 new Council homes by March 2022 with its Greenwich Builds programme.”
