Excel was originally founded as a demolition and groundworks contractor, starting with domestic work and progressing further afield to sub-contract works, and now as principle contractor for developers. We carefully consider each demolition project, planning to our surroundings accordingly. We are experienced in highly populated inner city environments, quiet residential roads and close neighbouring occupied office buildings, taking all environmental impacts into consideration during planning and execution.
