Demolition of a building or structure requires careful consideration and the support of a dedicated demolition company like Hughes and Salvidge. Depending on the size and position of the structure, whether it contains asbestos or precious metals, whether it is a steel frame or concrete frame, different methods of demolition may be employed which in some cases may involve explosive demolition.
Starting a demolition project
Prior to the commencement of any demolition project, Hughes and Salvidge prepare a comprehensive method statement to address any risk elements and provide a method to work to. The estimating team will identify the materials that are to be reclaimed, recycled, re-used or disposed of off-site. They will calculate approximate tonnages or volumes of these materials and have definite costs and final destinations for these materials. As some reclaimed metals are very valuable it is imperative that we achieve the best value for these as this is generally credited to the client.
“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.”
