Client The Howard de Walden Estate

Urban -$10m Deconstruct web


Deconstruct was employed to undertake soft strip and structural alterations within 141-143 Harley Street in London, a Grade ll listed structure, and demolition of mews buildings to the rear. Following this, Deconstruct is to form a new triple basement to the rear with a three-storey concrete frame for the city’s first private Proton Beam Therapy Centre treating cancer patients.

O’Keefe Demolition

Country United Kingdom

Project Camden Lock Village

Client Mace

Urban -$10m O Keefe web index


Camden High Street in London is a mix of vibrant markets, cosmopolitan independent retailers and world famous music venues that attracts an estimated 40 million visitors each year. However, the current street environment – dominated by traffic, with narrow busy footways and poor quality pavement – does not reflect the area’s importance or appeal.

Camden Lock Village on the High Street is currently undergoing a redevelopment which will see the site comprise eight new buildings incorporating 200 new homes and over 9,000 sq m (97,000 sq ft) of commercial space. The only original structure to remain on site is a Victorian terrace of three-storey properties to preserve the historic street-scape.

Scudder Demolition

Country United Kingdom

Project One Palace Street

Client Northacre

Urban -$10m Scudder One Palace


Scudder Demolition was awarded a prestigious cut and carve package alongside groundworks, drainage and steel erection works at this Grade II listed building, located opposite Buckingham Palace. The high-profile, central London site presented the team with a restricted working area and confined basement, requiring detailed planning and logistics management to deliver works.

The project entails strengthening works to enable the jacking of the entire structure, prior to new foundations being constructed and all timber floors subsequently being replaced with concrete slabs.


Demolition & Recycling International wishes to thank all the awards judges for their time and effort analysing this year’s entries. Look out for a feature on them in the September-October issue of D&Ri
