What is controlled demolition ?

Controlled demolition involves the safe use of explosives to demolish a building in a matter of minutes. It saves an enormous amount of manual labour and it is the best technique to use for large and high-rise buildings that would otherwise present unsafe demolition conditions to an on-site crew.

It involves rigging explosives at key points in the building’s structure. A team then detonates these explosives via remote, usually creating an implosion that pulls the structure inwards and downwards. With a controlled explosion, there will not be any debris that flies away from the building and causes harm to those nearby.

So, why is this service ideal for larger buildings? Here are a few of the reasons:

  • The use of a remote control allows everybody involved to stay a safe distance away from the demolition site. Moreover, it ensures that the crew does not have to use power tools that could cause injury over the long term.
  • It is capable of demolishing thick concrete structures in a very short period.
  • Controlled demolition can make short work of even the most complex of demolition jobs, assuming the explosives are placed correctly.
  • It is an extremely versatile form of demolition that can be used for practically any type of building.

How to get started

Once you have made contact regarding the applicable demolition works, we will arrange a time and date to visit the project to examine the building, we will discuss your requirements with you and get an idea of the scope of the project.

The technician will likely make notes about the building’s structure and will start to create a customised demolition action plan to suit the building.

After providing a quote, we will get to work on more in-depth planning. Our aim is to ensure the safe demolition of the building, which often requires several site inspections. These allow us to ensure the correct placements of explosives to create the most efficient explosion possible.

We will also assist handle all the documentation that goes along with a controlled demolition.
