East Midlands Demolition’s Employee Awarded Prestigious “Demolition Site Supervisor of the Year” Title

East Midlands Demolition is celebrating today after one of its employees secured the "Demolition Site Supervisor of the Year" title at the prestigious 2017 National Federation of Demolition Contractors (NFDC) awards.

Martin Riley fought off fierce competition from over 30 other nominees to clinch the coverted honour at this year's awards ceremony, which is organised annually by the NFDC, in conjunction with the National Demolition Training Group (NDTG) to recognise and honour excellence within the industry.

Martin, who has worked in the sector for over 27 years, was nominated for the award by East Midlands Demolition managing director, Winn Jones:

"Martin has been working for East Midlands Demolition for over 13 Years and over that time has proved himself to be an invaluable member of staff. He has a talent for seeing a project in its entirety, from start to finish, and planning the process in the most efficient and cost-effective way possible. This competence means I have no qualms in leaving Martin on any site, safe in the knowledge that the job will get done - and done well.

It is because of this experience, together with his strong work ethic and ability to communicate clearly with customers on all levels, that I nominated him for this award," concludes Winn.

Peter Siddall, owner of East Midlands Demolition, agrees: "We are all extremely proud of Martin and his achievements, and this award is definitely well deserved. It is a very exciting time for East Midlands Demolition, as the company continues to go from strength-to-strength, and we are glad that Martin is part of our team."

Martin Riley concludes: "It was a complete surprise to win this award, as the competition gets tougher year on year. However, this is simply a reflection of the increasingly high standards within the sector and demonstrates the pride we all take in our work.

"It is incredible for me, and for East Midlands Demolition, to be recognised by the NFDC and NDTG for our dedication to the industry and our continued hard work," adds Martin.

As corporate members of the NFDC, East Midlands Demolition attends quarterly regional meetings to help it remain at the forefront of industry developments. It's membership also means it is subject to annual audits by the NFDC, whereby a typical demolition site is selected and an auditor arrives unannounced to carry out the rigorous task, from checking site signage, method statements, risk assessments, policies, procedures, and training, to full plant inspections. Everything is examined thoroughly to ensure compliance with the NFDC membership requirements.

East Midlands Demolition works closely with the NFDC and the NDTG and prides itself on providing continual development opportunities for its operatives, helping them to stay safe in every situation.

Waterloo Road Cobridge

Site decomission comprising asbestos removal,
Demolition and associated construction works
301, Waterloo Road, Hanley, ST6 3HR.

The works were loacated on one corner of a major 4 way cross roads, due to the complexity of the demolition works, partial road and footpath closures were required to enable the works to take place safely. due to the location of the site, all deliveries & collections including plant, equipment and waste skips had to be carefully coordinated at specific times to avoid interface with local pedestrians, traffic, schools and businesses'. High level demolition works were carried out by hand to reduce any risk of debris falling onto the highways, sections of buildings were safely demolished to leave party walls in place.

Former Charlton High School Wellington Telford.

With the new High School built it was time to demolish the old school, with this school being clasp type buildings it meant that asbestos was present throughout the buildings, coordination between asbestos surveyors, licensed asbestos removal contractor and EMD were crucial to carrying out the works safely and to achieve the budget and programme, all concerned working in conjunction progressively phased each section of works to ensure any asbestos was identified and removed ahead of any demolition works. Constant background monitoring was carried out by the appointed asbestos analytical company to ensure te works were being carried out as the contol measures required, this meant all operatives were always updated and assured the work areas were free of any potential asbestos exposure, daily briefings between all parties ensures works were monitored and discussed at each level. The site was loacted in the heart of a local housing community, therefore environmental controls such as noise and ust was a priority, the works were completed on time and within the programme with no issues or complaints, the client was very happy.

Adult Care Centre Derbyshire County Council County Hall Matlock.

The client appointed EDM to Demolish a 28 bay two storey Premier Transline modular building constructed in 1997. This is a large building located central to the County Hall complex close to other buildings which will remain accessible and in use during the demolitoon period. Due to the amounts of site constraints, each element of the works required careful planning and coordination, the whole site needed to remain ooerational through the demolition works, this meant that the surrounding site was constantly used by road users, pedestrians, Couincil staff and visitors. Deliveries and collections were required to be out of hours during very quiet times to avoid interface with all other users, the building could only be dismantled from one end working to the other due to its location, the works were safely carried out to the satisfaction of all concerned.

Wheatsheaf Pub

A complete strip out and demolition of various out buildings to covert the former public house into a new McDonalds food venue, the site is located in the middle of a very busy main road and side road with heavy traffic and side and shops and businesses on the other, logistically not the best location for deliveries and collections. EMD were appointed to completely strip out the former public house that was left derelict for some time, site constraints included squatters living rough in the outbuildings, drug abuse/needles, holes in the roofs meaning pigeon gaining access and leaving guano everywhere and licensed asbestos removal. A full environmental clean was required to all internal and external areas, negotiation with squatters meant a mutual departure from site with no further issues. Working to a deadline set my McDonalds EMD worked progressively through the building, clearing site waste as we went along to keep the small site area clean and tidy, working with the local shops and businesses to ensure the works did not have any effect to daily trade maintaining traffic flow to the main road side of site. the works were completed on time and handed iover to the Main construction Contractor who priased EMD for the way in which we left the site for them to occupy. the new venue was opened as planned.
