Typically, our projects have values of between £20,000 and £2,000,000 and we cover the full length and breadth of the UK.


At FDL we have a fully trained staff with a mix of skills in demolition, plant and haulage disciplines which, combined with our experienced management and supervisory staff enables us to resource any job with confidence.

In addition to our multi-lift wagons in the Forshaw transport fleet we have a mobile crusher and several demolition-spec excavators of differing sizes with a range of hydraulic demolition and material handling attachments.
