Demolition of the home of football continues apace, as the concrete crowns of Wembley Stadium's famous twin towers are this week ripped down. They will be taken away by property developer, Quintain, and possibly used as public art once the drab surrounding industrial estate is redeveloped. Griffiths McGee is demolition contractor for the job in association with main contractor Multiplex.

Groundworks are following on behind the team in what is believed to be the largest piling job in the country. This will include enabling work for the 133m arch bases that will support the largest single spanning roof structure in the world when lifted in 2004 (NCE 10 October).
