Detailed Planning

It’s easy to think that all you have to do is come in with a wrecking ball for a successful site demolition. However, this is not the case. Diligent planning, careful forethought, proper licensing, as well as approval from local, state, and federal authorities are all required.

This is a step that — if not properly adhered to — will prevent your successful demolition project from taking place.

Other aspects of the planning stage include environmental disruptions, or if the soon-to-be demolished building is a renowned landmark of some sort.

Proper Preparation

Preparation involves many things. A demolished site doesn’t just happen, it requires the right equipment, comprehensive building inspections, and expert tradesmen with the experience and knowledge to get the job done safely.

All of these moving parts must be used together, in unison, to have a successful site demolition project.

Additionally, you’ll also need to know how to keep costs under control. If you’re not careful, the price you pay for a demolished area could be much more than you originally anticipated.

These kinds of projects are large-scale (and oftentimes, lengthy) demolitions. For this reason, it’s a prudent idea to have an accountant on your team. Someone who can manage the budgeting aspect of the project can ensure you’re on point with your finances in regards to the demolition.

Site Demolition

Once you’ve gone through all the documentation and preparation, you’re now ready to get to work. There are a few methods you can use to ensure your ruined building project is a success:

  • Wrecking ball
  • Implosion
  • Selective demolition
  • Excavator demolition

Furthermore, the most important step during this process is to keep your workers safe. With large and dangerous equipment everywhere (drills, cranes, other machinery), a single accident can result in a serious injury, or worse…

As such, ensure your workers are properly trained and well versed in all safety procedures. While there are no guarantees of an accident-free job in this field, highly trained workers will greatly reduce the odds of it happening.

Once demolition is complete, you can then continue with cleaning and grubbing to remove trees, bushes, stumps, etc. Then move on to site grading, soil remediation, and soil stabilization to reinvigorate the soil so you can rebuild your commercial or industrial infrastructure.

Are You Prepared for a Successful Site Demolition?

Site demolition is no small feat. It requires patience, careful planning, the right workers for the job, as well as approval from the proper governing bodies. However, once you get past these hurdles, you’ll be well on your well to a successful site demolition.
