Summary

Demolition Awards to be held in Ireland fresh from a spectacular 2017 and it was quick out of the blocks this time round.

In fact the Urban Demolition over $10 million award was the first one presented on the night, creating a seamless link to the World Demolition Award in London which was also won by…Erith Contractors for its Marble Arch Place project. As “best of the best” this qualified Erith to present a case study of the winning project to the World Demolition Summit conference in Dublin. Now, only a few hours later, the same individuals who had given that presentation – managing director David Darsey and operations director Grant Styles – were back on the same stage to pick up the first silverware of the 2018 awards.

The volume of entries – in a record entry overall in this the 10th year of the event – made it necessary to split the Urban category into two sections. The dividing line was drawn at $10 million and Erith was one of four companies on the shortlist to contest the higher value end.

The winning entry is a multi-phase project that will ultimately bring about a state of the art medical clinic in Belgravia.
