Demolition in the Modern Industry

Todays Date: December 12, 2018

Lots of buildings are built with a limited lifespan or simply become unusable and unsafe over time. When this happens, the land space that the old building is taking up is often worth a lot more than the building itself, and so the building must be safely deconstructed so that the next construction project can take get underway.

Demolition is quite simply, the deconstruction of buildings and the recycling of the old materials for resale in the construction market. There is a high demand for recycled materials in the construction industry and so whatever can be salvaged from the old building is cleaned, repackaged and either reused to make the new building, or sold on to someone else in the industry.

An obvious factor that is taken very seriously on any demolition site is health and safety. The safety of the workers on site is obviously the number one priority and they must all wear industry approved hard hats, steel toe-cap boots, hi visibility / reflective jackets and where appropriate, ear and eye protection. Also, if asbestos is found on the site, then before any workers enter, it must be decontaminated under strict conditions.

The vast majority of parts from an old building will be reused on a new building in the case of some bricks, tiles, steel, slate etc. Whereas materials that cant be reused because they are too badly damaged are sold for scrap and put to a different purpose.

The costs for different demolition jobs can vary depending upon how much manpower is required to sort the building materials for re use. If it is a large brick construction and the bricks are to be cleaned and stacked on pallets by hand then the labour cost will be far higher than pulling down a similar concrete structure with a machine and crusher. The location of the building in relation to its neighbours will also greatly affect the cost of the demolition as well as health and safety factors, dust and debris within the surrounding area and access factors.

Finding a truly high quality demolition company can be a long process. The sort of company you should look for is one with a well established track record and a workforce with plenty of experience in order to have your demolition carried out with full confidence and competence.
