Demolition of a building or structure requires careful consideration and the support of a dedicated demolition company. 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 etc, different methods of demolition may be employed to achieve our main goal of a "safe and controlled demolition".
With over a half-century of experience, Metals and Plant have been involved with all manner of demolition projects, from small private properties to large multi-storey buildings, along with more specialised and non standard building types. We are able to efficiently plan and project manage all types of demolition projects and advise on the quickest, safest and most environmentally sound course of action. We utilise structural engineers calculations, building specification, specialist high reach equipment/excavators and occasionally explosive and implosion demolition techniques, depending on the nature of the contract. This allows us to safely dismantle and demolish the most demanding high-rise buildings whilst maintaining our excellent safety and environmental record.
The techniques and environmental implications on demolition activities have changed considerably over recent years and Metals and Plant remain at the forefront of the field, with strict risk assessment regimes, consistently high standards of training and up to the minute plant and equipment. This facilitates the optimisation of Health & Safety regulations as well as increasing the potential for recycling at every stage of the contract. The methods we employ are the most efficient possible, reducing noise and vibration as much as is practically possible, and our environmental policies contribute to our overall high standards and performance.
With a combination of Demolition and Dismantling techniques it permits Metals and Plant to recover/sell the assets and offset the value against the project cost. This makes Metals and Plant very competitive with the cost savings being passed onto the client.
All these factors help enable Metals and Plant to deliver a safe demolition of a structure and effective site clearance ready for the site to accommodate new uses. We have a proven track record of finishing on time, on budget and most of all safely.
