Thomas Mee is the Chief Executive of Mees Demolition. Thomas Mee has been the Chief Executive of Mees Demolition since 2005, when he was inspired to follow in his father’s footsteps and work in demolition. Mee credits the success of the business to his father’s knowledge, after it turned over £2m just two years after it was founded.
Mees Demolition (Manchester) works on all different types of projects, from small demolitions like the gatehouse at the Liverpool Royal Hospital, to the demolition of Nation nightclub. One of the most impressive projects that the company has worked on so far was in 2007, when they worked on the internal demolition of Littlewoods in Church Street to create more space for the new Primark store. The project involved removing 200 tonnes of steel through a space that was no bigger than a standard window frame, and Primark were so impressed that they awarded Mees Demolition contracts for other stores. Mees Demolition Manchester also worked on stripping out the flagship M&S store on Church Street, dismantling and stripping out the café, as well as the shop floors to update the store to become one of the hearts of the fast-paced shopping hub of Liverpool.
Perhaps the most nostalgic project that Mees Demolition has worked on was the demolition of Nation nightclub in 2016. It was a sad one for the city, as the club was the home of the iconic club night Cream. The club was demolished as part of a multi-million pound regeneration of Wolstenholme Square, to make way for apartments and an underground club. At the time, Thomas Mee said he knew that ‘all eyes’ would be on the demolition project, adding that it was a privilege to be involved in ‘reshaping the face of Liverpool for future generations’. In 2017, Mees Demolition began work on demolishing another of Liverpool’s famous fixtures on the nightclub scene, Pleasure Rooms. The club was popular in the late 90s before closing in 2013. The demolition will make way for city centre apartments. Thomas Mee said that the ‘demand for city centre living’ has led to an increased demand for their services, adding that the company knew the area well after working on the demolition of Nation in 2016.
