AOC Attends Gas Explosion Emergency Call Out

AOC Services: News

Anthony O’Connor and Sons have recently attended an emergency call out to a two story block of flats in Heywood, following a horrific gas explosion which rendered the structure hugely unsafe to the surrounding public and area. Whilst the majority of the damage occurred at the front of the flats, smashed windows and burn marks could also be seen along the side of the property, as well as furniture and belongings seen scattered across the floor. AOC worked closely with building control and the accident investigation team to carefully ‘make safe the structure’ enabling nearby road and footpaths to be reopened as normal without any risk to the public. After structural investigations were concluded, AOC completed demolition works efficiently and within their time scale of just three weeks, including most of the roof and the remaining front wall of the first floor flat being removed. The highly professional team used their expertise to minimise any further disruption and all works were executed with due care and respect for the sensitive residential area surrounding them.
