Skilled deconstruction of building structures from the top down
Floor-by-floor deconstruction is a complex and technically challenging procedure that involves the highest degree of engineering investigation, structural testing and design throughout the planning and implementation stages.
Top-down demolition is usually employed when the confines of a project site are restricted, such as inner city locations. The building is wrapped with scaffold and plastic mesh to prevent falling debris. If required, temporary works are put in place to support additional weight of plant within the building.
Plant is lifted onto the roof with a crane or high lift and demolition begins from the roof down.. Buildings with party walls may require additional structual engineering or temporary works and demolition is performed with the utmost of care for residents of adjacent properties. In most cases all arisings are removed from site as the project progresses.
