Case Studies

Take a look at our case studies to find out more about the types of projects we have been involved in.

Ponsmere Hotel in Perranporth

DSW provided professional demolition services for the iconic Ponsmere Hotel in Perranporth, Cornwall. The contract took place early in 2016. The services delivered by DSW included both internal and external asbestos removal, and a complete soft strip of internal recreation rooms, bar areas, dining rooms and over 80 bedrooms. In the process we salvaged approximately 2000 m2 of wooden floorboards.

Due to the nature of the project and the close proximity to the neighbouring properties, manual demolition was necessary for a sizeable proportion of the task. This was completed with scaffolds combined with the use of our high reach 360 excavator which facilitated the safe demolishment of the highest sections of the hotel. Following this, our 30-tonne excavators completed the demolishment of the single-storey sections. This included the removal of both external and internal swimming pool areas and the processing of waste materials at ground level.

Using our crusher, all waste masonry material was then crushed on-site. This recycled material could then be used within the new build phase.

DSW Group would like to express thanks to all the local residents of Perranporth for their cooperation and patience during the project.

Marine Salvage of MD Kodima Cargo Vessel in 2001

Operatives from DSW Group worked on the marine salvage of the MD Kodima Cargo Vessel in 2001. An emergency situation arose when during severe weather conditions, the vessel ran into difficulty. As a result, 4000 cubic metres of timber cargo was jettisoned from the vessel. The timber washed up at Whitsand Bay, Cornwall. 

MSC Napoli Container Ship at Branscombe Beach in 2007

In 2007, the MSC Napoli Container Ship became beached at Branscombe Beach. Many operatives from DSW Group were involved in substantial salvage and beach clean operations. This project lasted over 2 years in duration.

As a result of this successful salvage operation, we gained valuable experience in dealing with marine salvage operations. Our team can react quickly and produce excellent results anywhere in the UK.
