Old Ticket Office Demolition
Commercial and Industrial
Martello were commissioned by the Folkestone Harbour Company to manage the tender process and demolition of the old harbour ticket office as part of the significant redevelopment works taking place across Folkestone Harbour.
The demolition itself was a much later prefabricated addition and not part of the original harbour station structure and this added some complication to the demolition process as the prefabricated part of the building was joined to the original harbour platform wall at the rear, which the client wanted to retain.
As part of the process, Martello also made the application on behalf of the client to the local authority for the demolition works.
We have been involved in a number of projects for the Folkestone Harbour Company – you can find more details of the range of works that we have completed as part of the conservation and restoration work in Folkestone in the case studies and news sections of the website.
