Demolition firm top £1 million school contracts with latest project

Demolition outfit J Freeley has chalked up £1 million of school contracts in under two years with the completion of its latest project.

The Manchester-based firm has recently demolished the former Stamford Community High School in Ashton under lyne for Inspiredspaces Tameside - a company set up to deliver the government’s Building Schools for the Future programme in the area.

The 18 week project was originally delayed for a year due to the discovery of a bat colony in the building and filming of TV comedy series Shameless.

Managing director John Freeley said: “Education is a strong growth sector forthe business and we are delighted to have successfully completed another major contract for a key client.”

The site will now be sold for housing and part will accommodate a new primary school.

The former Stamford Community High was used for a period as a campus for the New Charter Academy but had lain empty since September 2011.

Freeley said 34 tonnes of asbestos materials were removed before demolition could begin, while 15,000 tonnes of hardcore were recycled and left on the site for re-use.

In total, four buildings were demolished but an electricity sub-station was retained.
