We Are

In 50 years of demolition we have seen it all. We have demolished almost every type of man-made structure and cleared the way for progress across the length and breadth of the UK.

With the expertise to demolish or dismantle any kind of structure, the skills to retain items of value, and the ability to leave the ground like nothing was ever there – we are S Evans & Sons.

2019 was S Evans & Sons Ltd’s 50th year.

From humble beginnings as a scrap metal merchant in 1969, our founder Sam Evans and his family have built one of the UK’s best known demolition businesses.

First moving into ship breaking and heavy industrial demolition, Sam later broadened the firm’s expertise to span demolition of all kinds and across all sectors – including infrastructure, industrial, manufacturing, municipal and residential.

In the years that followed, we established long-standing relationships with local authorities, secured repeat contracts with high-profile businesses such as TATA Steel, Network Rail and the Highways Agency, and developed a strong commercial aptitude for difficult sites.

Now, with an enviable reputation in our field, particularly as a specialist in infrastructure demolition, we are proud of our history and many of our first clients are still within our client portfolio today.

More recently, we have invested heavily in safeguarding the safety and wellbeing of staff, customers and subcontractors with the launch of Think Safe Be Safe – an innovative campaign that forms the basis of the safety culture at S Evans & Sons.

As one of the longest serving members of the National Federation of Demolition Contractors (NFDC), we are committed to industry best practice and were delighted to win the 2019 World Demolition Award for Explosive Demolition for our work with British Steel in Scunthorpe – the perfect recognition in our 50th year.

Continued success delivering high profile projects, a significant investment in plant equipment, an unfaltering commitment to the highest professional standards and success achieving five star audits in accreditations such as the rail industry’s RISQS, show our readiness for a long and successful future. Here’s to another 50 years in business.
