    Nowadays, demolition of buildings, houses and structures is carried out by professionals in this field – specialists in dismantling types of work. Often in a modern city to conduct dismantling of a building or a dilapidated structure is very problematic, near standing buildings, communications, and very often densely populated areas of the city, create many problems. Therefore there are rules of carrying out such works and for their realization demolition expert in the given sphere which frequently should spend almost jeweller accuracy work, without having touched nearby standing constructions or to keep only required designs as they can be used at the further building.

    Now the demolition of a dilapidated building or emergency house, the dismantling of the plant or other structures does not take much time, and it creates the illusion of a simple process. “The demolition of a building or a dilapidated structure is easy!” And what kind of difficulties the commercial demolition contractors in NJ and area faces?

    In case of dismantling works – demolition of buildings on the territory of the industrial enterprise –  the performance of works will be more time-consuming:

    1. the contractor makes a flow chart for the works;
    2. the measures directed on safety maintenance of other objects of the enterprise, and as its personnel are provided.

    Most often dismantling-demolition of buildings should be carried out according to the following plan, it is required:

    • to make the project of demolition with the detailed plan of carrying out;
    • to specify kinds of machines, tools and the process equipment required at bridge or building demolition;
    • installation of a construction site barrier to protect people, vehicles and other buildings;
    • disconnection, disassembly and transfer of all communications to a safe place;
    • disassembly of the upper part of the building: roofing structures and floors: due to the high complexity and danger of these types of work for their implementation, often used mini-robots controlled remotely;
    • the dismantling of buildings may include: dismantling of walls, partitions, floors and other elements of the building: these works are carried out when the dismantling of structures is carried out gradually;
    • in case of demolition of a building without possible problems of obstacles, there is a variant when dismantling of a structure is carried out by its breakage for what purpose special equipment is applied;
    • sorting of building elements, preparation of construction waste for loading, its removal and further utilization.

    Types of dismantling of buildings and structures in NYC

    Dismantling of buildings and structures can be carried out in different ways. The choice of the most suitable option depends on many factors: the complexity of the construction, its size, age, type of foundation and building materials.

    The most difficult is manual dismantling. The main tools are scrap, picks, sledgehammer and other hand tools, but the use of gas cutting machines is rare. This type of disassembly is usually used in cases where demolition by other means is impossible or the amount of work is insignificant, i.e. small, so it makes no sense to use large equipment. It can be used for construction demolition or even for interior, pool, concrete, bathroom, home. It’s pretty cheap so this type is very popular.

    The semi-mechanised dismantling of structures and buildings – a common method of demolition of buildings is considered to be more efficient, using pneumatic and electric tools: demolition hammers, mechanical saws, concrete breakers, jacks, winches, scrap, etc. But still, this method combines several negative points, the main one is labour intensity, high demolition cost, abundance of dust and frequent noise. So it’s better to estimate the price and make sure that it’s good for you.

    Mechanized house demolition and structures is carried out by the “shock” method using the largest fleet of machines and mechanisms. Such destructive tools are, of course, the well-known ball hammer, as well as the wedge hammer, they are attached to the boom of a crane or self-propelled excavator. This is how neighboring structures are destroyed, and bulldozers and tractors are used to destroy freestanding structures. The cost can also be checked with our manager.
