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 Dundeeā€™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.
