Lombard House is a landmark building in Croydon, which previously provided high spec serviced office space. The building to be demolished was a 3 storey office complex accompanied by 5 workshop buildings to the rear which is located in a prominent position at Lombard roundabout on Purley Way, Croydon.
The location of the building, with a large number of residential properties as well as a very busy footpath required the full encapsulation of the structure in scaffolding and monarflex to mitigate the migration of dust or debris into public areas. The north/east corner overhangs the public footpath immediately adjacent to the busy Lombard roundabout; in particular, the safe and controlled deconstruction of this area was critical to ensure no disruption to traffic or public.
