Erith Commence Demolition on Former Westferry Printworks
Erith commenced demolition on Westferry Printworks earlier today – the 15-acre waterside residential scheme. The former printworks, which was once the engine room for publications such as the Daily Telegraph and the Daily Express, is set to be the latest development in the rapidly regenerating Isle of Dogs. The large-scale redevelopment will pave way for contemporary housing providing a mix of private and affordable homes, shops, open space and a waterfront promenade situated on the Millwall Outer Dock.
Focal to Erith’s operations include the demolition and dismantling of the printworks superstructure, breakout of slabs, foundations and pile caps as well as the backfill of a pile matt across the footprint of the building.
Richard Martin of the Express commented: “I was impressed with Erith’s team when kicking off the demolition process at Westferry. The guys are doing a great job and the site is looking spotless which engenders exactly the spirit we are looking for in terms of a safe and professional demolition”.
