Building & Reinstatement Works

We offer a range of Building & Reinstatement Works across Southern England, including Soft-Strip, Maintenance, Roofing and Passive Fire Protection. Our operatives regularly undertake training courses and health and safety awareness courses to ensure that they understand the potential underlying hazards found within many of the buildings that we work on.

Soft Strip demolition works

Demolition & Soft Strip

Gwella have the experience to undertake soft strip demolition works, along with working with our strategic partners on larger demolition projects.

Soft Stripping is the removal of non-structural material from a building, which needs to be undertaken by persons with the relevant skills, especially within older buildings, where there may be underlying hazardous materials.

Passive Fire Protection

Passive fire protection is an integral component of the structural fire protection and fire safety in a building. Passive fire protection (PFP) is one of three forms of structural fire protection, along with active fire protection and fire prevention. PFP aims to contain and delay the spread of fires through fire compartmentation. Fire compartmentation divides buildings into areas that allow fire risks to be better managed.

Our employees have the relevant experience to undertake these works correctly and safely providing you with the confidence the work is compliant.

We undertake this work within a wide range of sectors and the works include the following:

  • Installation of fire doors
  • Fire and smoke damper maintenance
  • Fire door maintenance
  • Fire curtains

An excellent outcome

May 17, 2024

“I’ve felt the need to write this email to convey how pleased I am with your installation of the W08 spray booth access walkway. I have just spoken to the Building Manager and he is also over the moon.

Considering yourselves and STQ had a late start yesterday morning due to logistical reasons, the engineers have pushed on and just completed the install in record time.

Please give my thanks to the relevant engineers and thanks to all involved in getting this over the line to an excellent outcome.”

“Just a quick note to say how smoothly and safely the investigations went today at 66 St Nicholas. Colin was organised, safety first and as always just a very pleasant person to work with. The operative, Trevor, from Gwella, was safe, tidy and got what we were trying to do immediately; hats off to him also. So just a big thank you from me to you and the team.”
