Every constructed premise has a certain survival time. A constructed house or commercial property has a standing life of several years during which they stand firmly against all conditions. But all constructions undergo wear and tear and they get weak as time goes by. The structure of the property starts to weaken over time.
Sometimes the house may not be constructed properly, which may require immediate action. Some commercial premises require replacement or renovation over time. In such situations, demolition is the only viable option for such premises. Demolition is the process of disassembling or deconstructing a property, so that the piece of land it is constructed upon can be used again.
Sometimes, the state of a constructed property is such that it is beyond repair or renovation. At such a time demolition is preferable for that property. Even when the construction of the property is done with imperfections, it needs to be demolished so that the property can be reconstructed correctly. Sometimes, the owner of the building may want to pull down the entire property and build something bigger and modern. In such situations, demolition of the older building and reconstructing it is the best option.
Usually demolition of any property includes demolishing the constructed place through the use of construction equipment and machinery in a specific period of time. The process of demolition is carried out by experts having relevant skills and experience in the field.
There are many important factors that need to be considered while performing the demolition of a house or any commercial property. The owner of the property should consider the exact reasons for demolition and inform the demolition team about it. The owner should make himself aware of the entire process and the costs required for the demolition.
They should also make a list of the movable items in their property, so no other losses occur. If any clearances are to be required from local authorities the owner should plan to get them accordingly. If the property is being considered for reconstruction, the owner should inform the authorities about the water, gas, electricity and phone connections to be reused. The owner should list the reusable materials of that property so that those materials can be reused for the construction. All this needs to be done in consultation with the demolition experts that have been hired.
The process of demolition is carried out in a specific manner. The demolition process proceeds in the following way:
- Prior to starting the demolition process, the team needs to understand the customers requirements and ensure that the process is carried out in an orderly fashion.
- The plan of order of work needs to be prepared and approved by the property owner.
- The team needs to inform the owner to cut off electricity, water, gas, and phone connections from the property.
- The demolition site is then fenced and protected so as not to cause any inconvenience to neighbours etc.
- The appliances and equipment from the site are uninstalled and removed to a safe place.
- If there are any hazardous materials present on the site, the team will remove them safely with proper handling.
- The wiring cables, plumbing pipes are loosened and removed from the site.
- Doors, windows, frames, mouldings, joints and other attachments are removed securely.
- After taking all safety precautions and measures, the demolition process of walls and roofs gets initiated and unwanted materials are crushed at the site.
- Once the demolition gets completed, the debris needs to be disposed of appropriately.
- The site is further inspected for any incomplete work.
The demolition team should complete the work in the given time frame. The team needs to take extreme care of neighbouring area and environment while performing the demolition work at the site. They also offer cost effective and convenient demolition work for the customers.
