Demolition & Dismantling

By nature of the type of works carried out demolition is a potentially hazardous occupation. At Capital Demolition the potential hazards and risks are minimized by thorough assessment and planning of the works necessary and ensuring The Health & Safety Plan and Method of Works fully allow that adequate protection has been considered and provided to preclude unnecessary risk of accident, injury and exposure to hazards.

Capital Demolition act as Principal Contractor on over 90% of projects undertaken, a recommendation by proxy from a large list of satisfied repeat clients.

Good planning, reliability and a real commitment to client aspirations are our byword. Client satisfaction is our byword on every occasion.

We have wide experience in dismantling, as well as heavy demolition. A recent project involved dismantling a reinforced concrete framed 3 storey office block, the ground floor of which contained well known High Street retailers and a nationally known pizza restaurant.

Both busy traders had to remain open and trading throughout removal of the offices above and around them. A system of work was developed where the concrete frame was progressively diamond stitch drilled and whole beam section lifted out, without the normally attendant noise, dust and vibration which can be generated by demolition works. The remainder of the works were undertaken with small robotic hydraulic concrete crackers and pulverisors.

This project required meticulous planning and execution, from the provision of scaffolding and extensive crash decking to preparation of a temporary protective and waterproof roofing layer over the retained units.

Our sites are required to recycle and reclaim as much waste arising from demolition activites as possible. Waste is sorted and recycled where possible and have a measurable and auditable trail.

Demolition of the varied buildings will create a variety of potentially waste materials.

It is intended that up to 100% of the following materials will be recycled -

To be crushed to produce an alternative product which may be used instead of natural aggregate. Not only will this obviate landfill but will provide a cost effective alternative that does not deplete valuable natural resources. Use of such recycled material may be as - Driveway Material, Road Base, Irrigation Control Barriers, Erosion Control Barriers, Temporary Road Base, Gabion Stone, Blanket Stone etc.

Salvaged bricks to be cleaned and recycled in the construction industry for use in building projects requiring materials to match specialist requirements.

Broken or unsuitable bricks to be recycled as hardcore or crushed and recycled for blinding or several of the uses as for crushed concrete.

To be recycled as a crushed material suitable for use in reconstituted tarmac or as lower grade fill for road projects.

To be recycled. Creating steel from virgin ore requires 4 x more energy that recycled steel. Recycling steels helps decrease water pollution, air pollution and mining waste. Steel beams in excellent condition may be re-used when re-producing from original lengths.

Non-Ferrous Metals;
Copper, Brass, Aluminium, Stainless Steel and other Alloys will be recycled.

To be recycled into the second user market or chipping for product manufacture or pulping.

Site Remediation

With the encouragement of Government brownfield sites are now more commonly redeveloped (recycled). Such sites often suffer from contamination arising from past uses. Ground beneath site slabs, foundations and hardstandings may contain a wide range of contaminants ranging from cyanide to old asbestos materials.

Such terrain requires careful treatment, removal and disposal in accordance with current legislation. Capital Demolition can undertake all necessary remediation measures in a professional and efficient manner on behalf of site owners.

Emergency Response

The Head of Building Control at Elmbridge Borough Council said:

"I would firstly express my appreciation for the quick response your company gave following my initial telephone call at 08.18am in connection with the incident. To be able to meet with you on site within three quarters of an hour, agree a course of action and then for you to have men and machinery on site, starting work one and a half hours later is a credit to your company and I may say a great relief to myself."

"In addition, the operatives you sent to site were, in my opinion, first class professionals and carried out everything that was asked of them in a very efficient manner."

Can we offer you an emergency service?
