All demolition projects have one aim - orchestrating a safe plan to bring a structure down. Generally, demolition services eliminate the support structure of a building to have it come crashing down. To achieve this, we develop in-depth plans that use the architectural blueprint of the building. The strategy will delineate all the specifics, including:

  • The type of force we use

  • Where we plant the explosives

  • The direction of the falling structure

If the building you want to take down has other buildings surrounding it, we will use implosion methods. The process of implosion will make the building come tumbling down vertically. In this manner, the debris will accumulate in the centre.

While all buildings require tailor-made approaches, the fundamental strategy is to eliminate the lower columns, followed by the upper floors. In some cases, where clients desire smaller pieces, we might demolish the upper floors first. On the other hand, we use wrecking balls for simple structures like garden sheds with less than five stores.

All in all, demolition projects require the perfect balance between in-depth planning involving maths and physics, choosing the ideal explosives and the experience of the demolition contractors.

The following are some commonly asked questions about our demolition services in Sudbury:

What Are the Different Ways to Demolish a Structure?
As mentioned above, there are several ways of demolishing a building, depending on its size. These methods include:

  • Mechanical demolition: This is the most common method involving heavy machinery like bulldozers, wrecking balls, and excavators. Generally, this method is the cheapest.

  • Deconstruction: This is a slower method, where technicians tear down a building piece-by-piece using hand tools. While this method is more expensive at the start, you can sell the building materials to recover the cost.

  • Explosion and implosion: While this demolition method is the most efficient, it is often the last 'resort' due to concerns like damage to adjacent structures, the noise created, and flying debris. With regards to pricing, explosive demolition is reasonable.

What Is the Cost of Demolition Services?

Generally, the cost of demolition can average between $4 to $15 per square foot. However, there is no set standard because the eventual price depends on the type of demolition required, health and safety concerns such as asbestos, the building's dimensions and more.
