a game-changing demolition contractor

innovation in a sector reticent to change

AR Demolition are exactly the type of business we like working with – daring to be different, even if it means ruffling feathers, in the pursuit of changing their industry for the better. Set up in 2007 by managing director Richard Dolman and his cousin Andrew Thompson, the company was duly listed in the London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG)’s ‘1000 Companies To Inspire Britain’ report of 2018.

Investment in hi-tech, sustainable and innovative machinery. Promotion of women and the inception of the world’s first demolition degree. A drive to promote the recycling of demolition waste into aggregates for new building projects. Right up our street, we love working with them and we’ve produced some great press coverage together.
