Photo guide on how the Beech Hill tower blocks in Halifax are being demolished

The imposing tower blocks on the Beech Hill estate which have stood empty for more than 10 years are being demolished - but how is it being done?

Rhodar, a leading specialist enabling works provider, are in charge of demolishing the three 18 storey tower blocks.

The rubble will be recycled into a specific engineered fill material that will then be used to create a development platform for the next level of regeneration.
