How we can help you


Solutions for Industrial Demolition Projects

Each industrial demolition project has its own unique set of requirements, therefore our methodology for every job is tailored to suit your needs. Many of the sites we work on are high-risk and sensitive, therefore every aspect of a project is meticulously planned with client representatives and regulatory authorities to guarantee a safe, timely outcome on budget.

Our time-served specialist teams are involved in the preliminary stages of brownfield regeneration and industrial demolition to help shape the project by combining proposed objectives with site capabilities and constraints.

They not only focus on cost efficiency, safety, and logistics for your project as you would expect but also work collaboratively with you and your stakeholders from the outset to lower the possible environmental impact, whilst employing the most sustainable techniques and supply chain provision to help lower the carbon impression.

What is industrial demolition?

Industrial demolition refers to the total, safe, taking down and disposal or recycling of industrial facilities and their structures. It involves various techniques from mechanical methods to controlled explosive demolition, which are adjusted to suit each project.

Deconstruction is a more systematic and selective form of demolition that emphasizes the salvage of reusable materials. It is undertaken by disassembling structures using special excavator attachments such as shears.
