Demolition Contractors in Dorset

Here at Hughes and Salvidge, we offer a complete, environmentally-friendly demolition solution in Dorset that has been carefully developed to accommodate your bespoke demolition requirements.

Established in 1964, we have become one of Dorset’s leading and most trusted demolition contractors. We demolish, crush, and recycle in-house in order to ensure that you always receive the highest standard of service, placing a strong emphasis on exceptional health and safety.

From our Portsmouth Head Office, offering a unique, quality assured, and professional contract solution for businesses and clients based in Dorset has become second nature to us. We always go above and beyond to ensure that all of your demolition needs are met.

Championing the highest standards of innovation, quality, and awareness, we pride ourselves on managing every stage of the process, from the initial budget costing right through to the completion of the final project.

Our approach is very simple – we always put your needs first. This is an area of our day-to-day business operations that we absolutely refuse to compromise on. For us, it’s all about delivering first class communication, outstanding client satisfaction and safe project completion.

Why Choose Us?

Here at Hughes and Salvidge, adopting best practices when it comes to corporate social responsibility has always been a top priority. It’s an area of our business that all of our staff take extremely seriously.

With this in mind, it’s a core consideration and key part of every project that we work on. In fact, we make it our business to ensure that all of our day-to-day business operations and activities actively reduce any potential environmental impacts.

From maximising recycling potential through to keeping environmental impacts to a minimum, we strive to recycle in excess of 95% of demolition arisings.

For our work to ensure environmental protection, in 2016, we were awarded the Recycling and Environmental World Demolition Award for our work on projects in Southampton, Hampshire and our company-wide Green Hands Initiative.


“Hughes and Salvidge provided a full package including the removal of all recyclable material. The project was executed very professionally from the outset and throughout. Exceptionally user friendly organisation and would not hesitate to recommend.” – Steve Higgins, Ordnance Survey, Southampton, Hampshirev
