Our demolition process

Before starting any demolition project, Hughes and Salvidge prepare a comprehensive method statement and site-specific risk assessment to address potential risk elements and outline the planned approach. Our dedicated estimating team will identify materials for reclamation, recycling, re-use, or off-site disposal, calculating approximate tonnages and volumes with definite costs and final destinations. As certain reclaimed metals hold significant value, Hughes and Salvidge prioritise obtaining the best value for these materials as they are usually credited to the client.

What others had to say about our demolition and site clearance services.

Our approach to demolition


Site assessments are a crucial first step in any demolition project. They provide the information needed for thorough project planning and assessment. We’ll take into consideration a comprehensive range of factors, such as the size and complexity of the building, whether hazardous materials are present and the potential environmental impact of our activities.


Using the information gathered from our initial assessment, our experts will then meticulously plan our approach. This will include the demolition methods, the phases of the project and the safety protocols that we’ll put in place. From there, we can develop a realistic timeline and budget for the completion of the project.

Demolition Work Commences

With a thoroughly considered plan in place, our team will then begin the demolition work according to the approved plan. We leverage our strategic investment in advanced demolition techniques and state-of-the-art equipment to ensure the work is completed efficiently, safely, and with a sustainable approach.

Hazardous Material Removal

If we suspect the presence of hazardous material, such as asbestos or chemicals, we'll factor safe removal and disposal into the demolition plan. Our highly trained operatives will safely handle, package, and dispose of any encountered hazardous materials, following all regulations.

Environmental Protection and Monitoring

As a responsible demolition company, we will consider the environmental impact of our activities before, during and after the demolition project. From the start, we’ll put measures in place to ensure that we minimise our impact on the environment. We’ll monitor air quality, noise levels and water runoff to prevent the contamination of surrounding areas.

Waste Management and Recycling

We prioritise responsible waste management on all our projects. A comprehensive site waste management plan ensures a streamlined approach, saving time and resources throughout the demolition process. We aim to achieve 97% recycling of demolition waste. For any non-recyclable materials, we guarantee proper disposal and maintain meticulous records of all waste removed from the site.

Site Clearance and Clean Up

Once the demolition phase is complete, the next step is to clear the site and remove any remaining debris and rubble from the site. This crucial step ensures the site is prepared for its next chapter. Our experts will ensure that the site is clear of contaminants and harmful waste, safeguarding the environment and paving the way for future development.

Final Inspections and Site Handover

Once the site is cleared, the dedicated project manager will undertake a comprehensive final inspection to verify its alignment with approved plans and adherence to regulations. Upon successful completion of the inspection, we formally hand over the site to the client, confident that it meets their exact requirements and is ready for the next stage of development.
