Demolition and Deconstruction includes the tearing-down of buildings and structures. As a part of our environmental stance we look for opportunities to salvage and recycle what we demolish.

We are a general contractor specializing in demolition and environmental projects. Company-wide support and experience allows us to perform a seamless transition from Environmental work (Asbestos Abatement, Lead Remediation, Mold Removal, Consultation and Testing) to Demolition (Dismantling, Decommissioning, Salvage, Recycling, and Asset Management).) Our clients include building owners, developers, contractors, health care providers, institutions, and manufacturing companies that are committed to providing and maintaining a safe and productive workplace, and residential owners concerned with safety. Demolition contrasts with deconstruction, which involves taking a building apart while carefully preserving valuable elements for re-use.

For small buildings, such as houses, that are only two or three stories high, demolition is a rather simple process. The building is pulled down either manually or mechanically using large hydraulic equipment: elevated work platforms, cranes, excavators or bulldozers. Larger buildings may require the use of a wrecking ball, a heavy weight on a cable that is swung by a crane into the side of the buildings. Wrecking balls are especially effective against masonry, but are less easily controlled and often less efficient than other methods. Newer methods may use rotational hydraulic shears and silenced rock-breakers attached to excavators to cut or break through wood, steel, and concrete. The use of shears is especially common when flame-cutting would be dangerous. The experience we provide will give you the best project management, innovative solutions, and up-to-date engineering technologies for your project.
