Wembley Project Update: Demolition and Material Crushing for Piling Mat Construction


At D & R Demolition, we pride ourselves on delivering efficient, safe, and sustainable demolition services. Our latest project in Wembley is a testament to our commitment to excellence. We have successfully brought down the building and are now in the process of crushing all the materials to create a piling mat. This blog post provides an insight into the meticulous process and the significance of our work.

The Wembley Project: A Brief Overview

The Wembley project involves the demolition of a large commercial building to make way for new development. This high-profile project requires precise planning and execution to ensure safety and minimize disruption to the surrounding area.

Demolition: Safety and Precision

Demolishing a building in a busy area like Wembley requires a meticulous approach. Here’s how we managed it:

  1. Planning and Permits: Before any physical work began, we obtained the necessary permits and developed a comprehensive demolition plan. This plan included safety measures, environmental considerations, and a detailed timeline.
  2. Site Preparation: We secured the site with barriers and signage to ensure the safety of the public and our workers. Utility services were disconnected, and hazardous materials were safely removed.
  3. Controlled Demolition: Using advanced machinery and techniques, our skilled team carefully brought down the structure. The process was executed in stages, ensuring stability and safety at all times.

Crushing Materials for the Piling Mat

Once the building was safely demolished, the next critical step was crushing the materials for reuse in the piling mat. Here’s why and how we do it:

  1. Environmental Responsibility: Recycling and reusing materials is at the heart of our operations. By crushing the demolition debris, we reduce waste and minimize the environmental impact of the project.
  2. Material Sorting: The debris was sorted to separate recyclable materials from non-recyclable waste. Metals, concrete, bricks, and other materials were segregated for processing.
  3. Crushing Process: Using state-of-the-art crushers, we processed the concrete and masonry into aggregate. This aggregate will be used to construct a piling mat, providing a stable foundation for the new development.
  4. Quality Control: The crushed materials were tested to ensure they meet the required standards for strength and durability. This guarantees the integrity of the piling mat and the stability of the future construction.

The Importance of a Piling Mat

A piling mat is a crucial element in construction projects, especially in urban areas with variable ground conditions. Here’s why it matters:

  • Foundation Stability: The piling mat distributes the load of the piling rigs, ensuring a stable base for driving the piles into the ground.
  • Safety: A well-constructed piling mat reduces the risk of machinery tipping over, enhancing safety on the construction site.
  • Efficiency: By providing a stable working platform, the piling mat increases the efficiency and speed of the piling process, helping to keep the project on schedule.


The Wembley project showcases our expertise in both demolition and material recycling. By crushing the demolished materials for the piling mat, we not only ensure a solid foundation for the new development but also demonstrate our commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility.
