Existing Structure & Location:
Demolition of the massive Wembley Conference Centre, which included two Exhibition Halls, linked footbridges, office blocks and underground car parks.
The 1969 Conference Centre was a circular structure 240m in circumference with 5 metre deep complex steel trusses spanning 80 metres and totaling 5,608m². Adjoining the CC was the 722m² Greenwich Rooms and triangular 6,430m² Elvin House, a reinforced concrete 2 storey office complex. A pedestrian link bridge joined Elvin House to Exhibition Hall 1 requiring 6,587m² of demolition and Exhibition Hall 2 totaled 6,017m² with a pedestrian link bridge to the old Wembley Stadium.
To achieve the tight programme requirements, soft strip, asbestos removal and scaffolding were all carefully phased to permit demolition of the various structures to commence at the earliest opportunity.
