Residential Demolition in Sydney
What about Residential Demolition?
Unlike what most people believe, residential demolition in Sydney isn’t only about tearing down structures and blowing off some building. It is in fact an engineered process that is designed for the safe and also more efficient removal of structures.
There are several types of demolition processes. Every type of demolition requires skills and precision. That is why there are contractors that specialise in this particular phase of construction.
The three most common types of demolition are residential, commercial, and also industrial. When the demolition involves small houses and buildings that are up to three stories high, it is called residential demolition.
Through the use of heavy equipment like cranes, excavators, bulldozers, and elevated work platforms, a residential demolition will be over in just a matter of hours. Commercial and industrial demolition on the other hand require heavier equipment. The most popular among them is the wrecking ball even if explosives may also be used.
Regardless of the type of demolition conducted, the general process and the safety precautions are still the same. The general steps would include land clearing, removing the debris, excavation or grading, then the demolition proper.
Everything may sound easy but it takes weeks to undergo the right planning procedure. The demolition contractors have to consider first the structure that they have to take down. For instance they have to do away first with some materials like glass, copper wiring, and other materials that may cause fire or some sort of abrasions. The contractors also have to take into account the location of the said project.
