In certain circumstances the option to use long reach machines to demolish high rise structures is not feasible. When such doubt in methodology occurs, perhaps due to environmental considerations or adjoining buildings, the only sensible option is to employ a Top Down ‘Floor by Floor’ demolition technique.Following the erection of scaffolding, crash decks and protective sheeting, the building is systematically ‘soft stripped’ of its doors, windows, services and non structural elements, until only a bare concrete shell exists.  If asbestos has been detected in the initial survey, this too will be removed under controlled conditions by a specialist Asbestos removal team.

Floor by Floor deconstruction is a complex and technically challenging procedure that involves the highest degree of engineering investigation and design throughout the planning and implementation stage of the works.  Our demolition teams are highly skilled and experienced with all methods and techniques involved, ensuring your project is always in safe hands from the embryonic stages to the day of completion.

Waste Management & Recycling

Whether it is the demolition of a building or the clearing of a contaminated brown field site, recycling and waste management planning is critical from the embryonic

stages of every project. We therefore always develop waste management strategies for each individual demolition project in accordance with the Site Waste Management Plans Regulations. 

On all demolition projects, a pre demolition site audit of potential reclaimable and recyclable materials is undertaken allowing us to:

  • Meet legislation requirements
  • Reduce waste disposal and its costs
  • Maximise resources available
  • Improving resources efficiency
  • Reduce landfill use
  • Reduce landfill tax payments
  • Make better use of materials

This ensures that recycling and waste management is a key component in helping our clients to achieving a high BREEAM rating.
