Work to partially demolish County Buildings in Crawley is scheduled to start soon.
This project is a key part of the One Public Estate initiative, with the County Council seeking to secure the long-term redevelopment of the site: the partial demolition will make this a more attractive proposition.
DDS Demolition Limited is due to start installing hoarding’s and setting up site from the beginning of March and the demolition works will follow with a 12 week programme soon after (subject to factors such as severe weather).
Michael Hennessy, DDS Group Operations Manager, said: “DDS Demolition are proud to be awarded the demolition contract for Crawley County Buildings following a competitive tender.
“We look forward to delivering a safe and successful project within such a forward-thinking community, whilst working closely with our valued client.”
Bob Lanzer, West Sussex County Council Cabinet Member for Economy, said: “I am pleased this work is scheduled to start soon. The partial demolition and redevelopment of the County Buildings site in Exchange Road is critical to demonstrating progress in the One Public Estate Programme (OPE) and with the wider regeneration of Crawley town centre.”
Details of the redevelopment of the County Buildings site in Crawley, including a link to FAQs, is available on our website.
The partial demolition will not affect the Magistrates’ Courts and Centenary House, which will remain in situ and host the West Sussex Coroner’s Court, a FindItOut Centre and Change, Grow, Live services, which will continue to operate from this building.
