Specialist contractors Dem-Master Demolition has completed its work to bring down and clear away Irvine鈥檚 Fullarton high flats.

The five towers were taken down over the course of several months using a high-reach demolition excavator. Water suppression hoses were used to reduce dust and minimise disruption for neighbours.

The last tower to remain standing, Afton Court, was brought down late last year. Since then, the site has been cleared of rubble and debris in preparation for the next stage of the regeneration project.

North Ayrshire Council will publish its draft plans for the new homes at Fullarton later this year.

Councillor Tony Gurney, cabinet member for green environment and economy at North Ayrshire Council, said: 鈥淭his is a major project which is transforming a key site in an important part of Irvine. We are looking forward to redeveloping this site to provide modern, energy efficient homes which offer our residents a better quality of life.

鈥淗appily, the demolition process went as smoothly as we could have hoped for and we鈥檙e delighted to see the site ready to move on to the next stage of its redevelopment.

鈥淭his will see new homes for affordable rent delivered on the site, contributing to our commitment to build more than 1,600 new council homes in every part of North Ayrshire.鈥
