What are general demolition services?

General demolition services can be broken down into multiple professional services that are carried out by building demolition contractors. Services are performed with specialist equipment ranging from bulldozers to controlled explosives, following legislation and practices. Our team at DES can perform these duties including soft strips, slab and foundation removals, contract crushing and screening, remote demolition, site clearance, and creating reusable materials from waste.

Our specialists will also perform building and structural surveys to assess the types of materials used in their construction, the condition of underlying problems such as water pollution and erosion, surrounding traffic conditions, the building’s condition, and the impact building demolition will have on the local community and citizens which are in proximity.

DES has carried out surveys for general demolition for over 30 years and has a wide knowledge of what needs to be done when surveying and carrying out controlled demolition services.
