Specialist demolition equipment rental operation JCH Plant Hire, based in Coatbridge near Glasgow, has taken delivery of a new Doosan 32 tonne DX300LC-3 Stage IIIB compliant tracked excavator that was supplied through Doosan’s Scottish dealer, Scotia Plant. It immediately started work on the demolition of Auchmuty High School in Glenrothes, which is being demolished by Falkirk based Masterton Demolition.

The school opened in 1957 and was the first state secondary school in Glenrothes. The school’s facilities were expanded in the early 1970s, but time has taken its toll and a new building has been built to replace it on the old school’s sports fields as part of a general regeneration of Scotland’s school buildings. The demolition of the old building will free up land for new playing fields for the school building.

JCH Plant’s fleet now includes four demolition specification Doosan excavators, which are joined by a Doosan DL300 wheeled loader, for use on demolition projects throughout Scotland
