Site Clearance

Hughes and Salvidge provide site clearance services for the systematic and thorough removal of structures, debris and obstacles in preparation for construction or redevelopment.

Specialised services for sustainable site redevelopment

At Hughes and Salvidge, we recognise the challenges that businesses face in enhancing efficiency and providing improved services in a sustainable manner with fewer resources. We have noticed a significant rise in the redevelopment and, in some cases, complete demolition of buildings and industrial sites that are no longer economically viable or environmentally friendly.

We provide a complete site clearance solution to those that need to remove waste and obstacles, eliminate potential hazards and prepare land for its new intended purpose.

Here are some of the aspects involved in site clearance:

Site Survey and Assessment

Our services begin by conducting a thorough survey and assessment of the site to identify any potential challenges, underground structures, or hidden hazards that may impact the clearance process.

A strategic and proactive approach

Ensuring safety during demolition



Utility Disconnection

Decommissioning involves the safe disconnection and removal of utilities, such as water, gas, electricity, and sewage connections to the site. This step is crucial to prevent any safety hazards during the demolition and subsequent construction phases.

Structural Demolition

In order to clear a site, we often need to dismantle and remove existing buildings or structures. This can involve controlled demolition techniques to bring down structures safely and efficiently.



Clearing the path for development


Creating a clean slate

Debris Removal

Clearing the site of any rubble, construction waste, or debris resulting from the demolition process is an essential step in site clearance. We will always dispose of or recycle waste materials in compliance with environmental regulations.


Hazardous Material Removal

Part of our complete site clearance solution involves the removal of hazardous materials, such as pollution or contaminants. This can be from soil, groundwater, sediment or surface water.



Safeguarding ecosystems

Delivering a high quality service



Final Inspection

Upon completion of the site clearance, the project manager will undertake a comprehensive final inspection to verify its alignment with approved plans and adherence to regulations. This meticulous review ensures that the site is ready for handover to the client.
