What Are the Processes Involved in Project Demolition?

Project demolition is the process of removing an entire or partial structure of anything from a home to a shopping centre, commercial buildings and anything in between.  If you think the process of demolition is just knocking down a few walls with excavators and dozers, think again. There are a number of processes involved to ensure the ultimate safety of all parties involved. Planning and execution are paramount for a demolition project to be successful, especially if asbestos is involved.

Like previously stated, making sure you have a fundamentally sound plan to execute is one of the main factors in ensuring your demolition project is successful. Inspecting the building's structural integrity is vital. Making sure that no unexpected collapses occur. 


There are a number of considerations you should be aware of including:


  • Structure stability
  • Depth of the structure
  • The position of where the structure is
  • Any underground rooms that may be involved
  • Surrounding properties


Before starting a major structural demolition project, the required permits and qualifications need to be completed before starting. Conducting a risk assessment is also required to ensure that the correct demolition procedure is followed for maximum safety. Preparing a plan for good conditions is essential but preparing a backup plan for if or when the project goes south is beneficial. 

What Do You Need to Do Before Starting to Demolish Buildings?

Safely removing asbestos before conducting any form of demolition is vital. If these asbestos fibres become disturbed, they float into the air and are small enough to be breathed in, causing deadly long-lasting health concerns. Asbestos should only be removed by trained professionals and with the correct equipment and processes before starting to demolish a structure. Asbestos removal can be a timely process depending on the amount located, so be patient.

Why Safely Removing Asbestos is Important?

Before any sort of project demolition occurs, an experienced demolition company will ensure that the following processes are completed before work commences:


  • Mark out working area and exclusion zone
  • Ensure the surrounding area is safe
  • Fire risks have been assured and proper procedures are in place
  • Complete the removal of all utilities from the structure (e.g. gas, water, electricity)
  • Inspection of safety gear, equipment and machinery is thorough
  • Each contractor has the required tickets and qualifications
  • Make sure all contractors involved understand the project requirements
