Next Retail Store Murraygate, Dundee
According to the Scottish Executive, Murraygate, Dundee is the busiest pedestrianised street in Scotland.
The 5-storey stone built structure to be demolished was located on a corner site immediately opposite the entrance to Dundee’s Wellgate Shopping Centre.
Traffic and pedestrian management systems were applied to effectively separate pedestrians from site traffic which only accessed the site under supervision of banksmen at pre-determined time slots.
Safedem installed a series of backpropping from basement up to roof level to ensure the stability of the structure for specialist operatives who demolished 80% of the structure by hand.
