Demolition is an intricate process that requires an experienced and skilled demolition crew. The team should also understand the demolition techniques that should be used to complete a demolition project. From traditional implosion techniques that require the use of large demolition equipment like wrecking balls and cranes, skilled demolitionists can help you with many construction projects. The demolitionists should also do environmental remediation and make sure that harmful materials are removed from a building. Safety can only be guaranteed by a team of skilled demolitionists.
Most of the building materials can be salvaged before demolition for recycling or for reuse. Common materials that are salvageable are carpets, wood, brick, porcelain, concrete, insulation material; flooring, roofing materials, and ceiling tiles. We use state of the art equipment to help us separate and recycle most metals and scrap. For example, the recovered concrete is hauled off-site and crushed for use as select fill or made into road base. The concrete can also be pulverized for re-use. Recycling is good because it earns you Green Building points and other environmental safety commendations. Metal is salvaged before, during and after demolition.
Demolition doesn’t always mean implosion of a building as many projects include interior demolition. This is a delicate process where the inside of a structure is cleared and prepared for projects such as upgrades and renovations. Some demolition works require selective structure demolition such as the removal of a wall or an entire room.
Industrial demolition takes care of demolition of chemical plants and manufacturing facilities and they often require advanced equipment and engineering. Commercial demolition is the process applied to commercial properties such as hotels, retail stores, and offices among others. Residential demolition occurs at homes and apartments.
Deconstruction is a process that is designed to recover recyclable and reusable materials from the demolition process. This process is carried out by hand to save as many materials as possible.
