Work has begun on the Bexhill branch of Parker Building Supplies to demolish some of the older warehouse buildings, with the help of regular customer Best Demolition of Heathfield, East Sussex.

Work has begun on the Bexhill branch of Parker Building Supplies to demolish some of the older warehouse buildings, with the help of regular customer Best Demolition of Heathfield, East Sussex.

The former Builder Center depot, which was taken over as part of Parker's branch expansion early in 2013, has long been in need of redevelopment, according to the company. The extra space created by the demolition will give them the scope to extend the heavyside, timber and Parker Paving facilities and to bring them in line with the merchant's other branches.

The renovation will also create additional space for parking and loading, greatly improving efficiency for the yard staff.

Parker Building Supplies said it will work hard to ensure that the work causes no disruption to its customer service levels while the renovation is being carried out.

The Bexhill branch has also recently welcomed Phil Osborne as the company's new sales representative.

Parker Building Supplies has a history of working closely with Best Demolition. Earlier this year during the period of bad weather, the National Trust needed fast action to secure a row of coastguard cottages at Birling Gap, near Eastbourne. The Georgian end-of-terrace house had been left teetering on the edge of a cliff after heavy rainfall caused several years' worth of erosion to occur in just three months.
