Contrary to everyday opinion, demolition is not just about tearing down buildings or blowing off some structure. It’s an engineered process aimed in the safe and efficient removal of various structures. There are different kinds of demolition processes. Each process requires precision and skill, which is why you will find contractors that specializes in these construction phase.
The most common classification of demolition includes residential, commercial, and industrial demolition. Residential demolition applies to small houses and buildings which are no more than three stories. With demolition equipments such as for instance elevated work platforms, cranes, bulldozers, and excavators, residential demolition can be done in just a matter of hours. Commercial demolition, as well as industrial demolition, requires heavier and larger equipment. The most popular among these equipments are the wrecking ball, though safety explosives are also commonly used.
But whether it is residential, commercial, or industrial jobs, the general process and the safety precautions that are required, stay the same. The general steps include land clearing and debris removal, excavation or grading, then the actual demolition.
