5 Misconceptions About Demolition

Friday, December 16th, 2011

There are several common misconceptions about demolition, which lead to several frequently asked questions (FAQs). So we at Atlantic Environmental Solutions decided to address several of these inquiries to help shed some light on the often-misunderstood demolition industry.

Let’s jump right in…

Is it a waste of money to demolish one building to just build another?

The short answer is no. For the most part, buildings that are completely demolished are ones that are structurally unsafe or ones that would cost more to repair then to re-build. But complete building demolition is just one aspect of the demolition industry. There are also…

Gut Outs: This just means that everything in the building is removed, thus gutting the interior.

Partial Demolition: This refers to the removal of a single part of a structure. For example, when you want to put an addition on your house and you need to get rid of a single the wall. A professional demolition company can remove the wall without disrupting the rest of the house.

And much, much more!

Is it fun blowing stuff up?

Actually, explosive demolition no longer plays a big role in the industry. Instead, more mechanical techniques – like 360° excavators – provide a cheaper and more efficient alternative.

Demolition must create a lot of waste, right?

Far from it, actually. Many of the demolished materials – like bricks – can be recycled or even re-sold. Only about 5-10% of a building will actually go to a landfill.

Do you have any control during demolition?

Absolutely yes. Building demolitions are incredibly controlled. And if a building can not be demolished mechanically in a controlled manner, then the entire process is done by hand. The demolition process is handled as carefully as possible, minimizing risk and increasing efficiency.

Can anyone be a Demolition Operative?

For the most part, operatives are highly skilled and undergo extensive training in their position. So can anyone be a demolition operative? Yes…if they take the necessary steps and training required.
