MGL Demolition

Westmoreland Court, Hebburn

The Demolition of a 1970's tower block in Hebburn, South Tyneside is part of an ambitious redevelopment and regeneration project by South Tyneside Council. The high rise block at Westmorland Court, consisting of 133 flats, is being demolished by MGL Demolition ahead of the regeneration of the site, and construction of good quality housing for local residents.

Councillor Alan West, lead member for housing at South Tyneside Council said: 'Demolition starting marks a major milestone in the regeneration of Hebburn Town Centre. The block was built in the '70s and the design and structure was very outdated. Bringing it up to standard would have run into millions of pounds. Providing modern, good quality housing for the residents which no longer made the grade.

The project required the supply and installation of over 6000m2 of FR sheeting which is sufficient to lay over St James Park pitch twice!
