Fire broke out approx 5.45pm Thurs 3rd Dec 2009 – 3 weeks before Christmas a crucial trading period for Morrisons. 4 fire brigades involved and residents were moved out – blaze put out about 4am.
A 8000sq ft temporary store and 2000 sq ft warehouse was opened on the 18th Dec 2009 (2 weeks later) constructed in the car park – the largest temporary store Morrisons have ever built.
Windmill Demolition were appointed immediately as a reliable contractor the Morrisons Group have worked with previously. They were tasked with making safe and securing the site, scaffolding the perimeter, clearing the damaged stock, project managing the construction of the temporary store. Understanding the urgency for Morrisons and the people of Penrith to have a store open in the week before Christmas especially as the weather closed in and the trip to Carlisle more hazardous, Windmill were able to react quickly and have received much praise for how they tackled the project.
Park hill Sheffield
Europe’s largest listed building, Park Hill is viewed as a building of architectural and sociological importance.
Clients Urban Splash and their architects have a vision to retain the concrete frame and remove the infill panels and windows creating 974 new apartments. They were configured around the retained structure and a new façade slotted in. Windmill Demolition carried out the delicate operation of removing all the existing internal paneling, plaster party walls, concrete façade and windows leaving a skeleton – most of the work done by hand and the materials removed were crushed for reuse across the site.
