Project London South Street Hospital, Phase 2
Client London Health Sciences
London Health Sciences in Ontrario pre-qualified contractors capable of undertaking the abatement and demolition of the second phase of the South Street Hospital decommissioning, which included six buildings situated on a city street.

Country United Kingdom
Project Oxford House
Client Great Portland Estates
According to Erith, the Oxford House project that it undertook was much more than a straightforward demolition.
Set in the heart of London’s West End, the contract was to demolish a nine-storey building over the heavy pedestrian footfall along Oxford Street (Europe’s busiest shopping street), while ensuring the site remained serviced on a road that sees 500,000 pedestrians a day, 15,000 taxi journeys a day, and 420 buses an hour.
Erith delivered the Oxford House project – working 38,545 man hours on site – without a reportable incident or lost time incident, on time and on budget.

- Priestly Demolition
Project Bay Adelaide North Tower Project
With engineering and demolition requirements unlike many others – hidden beneath four levels of car parks and a concourse level which connects directly with the Toronto Path Network (the city’s 27 km/17 mile underground walkway), this project has brought with it the challenges of construction in the Downtown Toronto Core coupled with the need to keep the old while building the new onto it.
Challenges included stability of the remaining structure, which required temporary shoring and bracing using a combination of shoring props and prefabricated steel and limiting demolition works to times within the business day which would be least disruptive to business
