Our Process

Dangerous or hazardous materials such as petroleum contamination, asbestos minerals, and radioactive metals are unwanted during the process of demolition. The specialized team removes all such materials before the process of demolition starts.

Removing of inflammable kinds of stuff that may include wood, fuel, timber and so on and storing them in a proper as well as a safe place. Briefing the workers including engineers, supervisors, equipment operators about potential dangers and the demolition process is very important. 

Methods of Demolition

1) Sledgehammer For Small wall and single column Excavators and bulldozers

For Small constructions, soil excavation, transferring debris

2)Wrecking balls

For 6 to 7 storied buildings

3)High reach Excavators

For Tall constructions with the height up to 100 meters (approximately)

4)Explosive Demolition

As the name suggests, this method uses explosives, fixed with the key supports of the building including beams, columns and slab and when the explosives detonate, the building collapses.

5)Falling like a tree

If there is enough space available at the demolition site then it is the most common type prescribed for the demolition of buildings where the building falls sideward. Steel cables are important in this method that controls the building’s falling direction.

6)Falling into own footprint

If there is no free space at the demolition site and the protection of adjacent structures is the concern, then it is quite a useful method to demolish the building.
