Expert Decommissioning Services


Safely shutting down the operations of industrial, chemical, petrochemical, power or nuclear facilities prior to demolition.

Hughes and Salvidge are one of the UK’s leading decommissioning companies, with experience spanning over five decades. From meticulous planning to controlled execution, we have the knowledge and expertise to ensure your decommissioning project is carried out safely, efficiently, and in a cost-effective manner.

Starting a decommissioning project?

When a building or structure reaches the end of its lifespan, it is required to properly be decommissioned before it is demolished. We have a wealth of decommissioning and demolition experience gained through our many years of working across a broad range of sectors. Our valued client base includes petrochemical and pharmaceutical companies, heavy industrial and manufacturing organisations, developers and main contractors, local authorities and utility companies.
