Demolition work has been taking place at our development site around the former Sunderland College campus in North Hylton, Sunderland.
Karbon Homes has planning permission for a new development of 105 homes on this land.
We handed the site over to our main contractor Esh Living last month, and they have engaged demolition contractor O’Brien’s to demolish the derelict college buildings.
Today, Friday 3rd April, a fire broke out in the roof space of one of the buildings on-site, and the Fire Service was called immediately.
The fire was successfully extinguished and nobody was hurt. The building did not contain any asbestos or other potentially harmful substances.
All work on site was being carried out in line with good practice, including recent guidelines issued by the Construction Leadership Council on safe working during the coronavirus outbreak.
Karbon and its contractors have worked closely with the Fire Service to ensure the site is now safe and secure, with work ceasing over the weekend.
