Demolition Methods and Types

Demolition Methods and Types

R. Baker & Son All Industrial Services is expert demolition contractor, performing various types and employing numerous methods, which are listed and defined below.

Interior Demolition
Interior demolition is the taking apart of interior portions of a structure while preserving the exterior, usually in preparation for a renovation project. This usually includes removal of walls, ceilings, pipes, etc.

Selective Demolition
A selective demolition project involves the removal of specific interior or exterior portions of a building while protecting the remaining structure and nearby structures and areas.

Dismantling/Deconstruction
This method involves the careful dismantlement or deconstruction of a structure to preserve components for reuse, recycling, or refurbishment. Dismantling generally more labor intensive than demolition.

Total Demolition
Total demolition is self-explanatory. It is the demolition of an entire structure, and it can be achieved by a number of methods, as listed below.

Mechanical demolition
This type of demolition uses specialized mechanical equipment and tools. These include hydraulic excavators equipped with specialized attachments that can break concrete and steel, effectively “chewing” the structure apart. Smaller equipment like skid steers loaders and demolition robots are used for smaller tasks and interior and selective demolition.

Implosion
A highly-specialized type of demolition that employs the use of explosives to bring down high structures by undermining structural supports so that it collapses within its own footprint or along a predetermined path. Implosion is used in less than 1% of demolition projects.

Crane and Wrecking Ball
One of the earliest methods of demolition, the wrecking ball is largely outmoded, replaced by excavators and other mechanical means that offer better precision, efficiency, and safety. Crane and wrecking ball
