Demolition Excavation

Demolition excavation involves tearing down and breaking up the whole or a portion of a structure using heavy equipment such as an excavator, bulldozer and dump truck. One important part of excavation building construction is making sure you have gotten the permits needed for the disposal of the materials you are removing from excavation area. Depending on the age or condition of the structure you are excavating, you may need to test for lead paint, asbestos, black mold or other dangerous materials, which will require removal by a special crew licensed for such a task.

Another aspect of the building excavation process often includes separating out the various materials that are part of the building such as metals from the concrete. You can sell the metal to a scrap yard which can offset at least a small part of the excavation wrecking project.

The plans proposed by the demolition excavation company should be very specific for what parts of your structure will be demolished. There have been many cases where the wrong structure had been targeted for wrecking or the wrong part of the building was torn down. You, as the owner or manager of the property, don’t want the added costs of rebuilding what was incorrectly torn down.

There are many different tools that a demolition excavation machine will use during the course of tearing down a structure. There include the grappler, excavator thumbs and hydraulic breaker. The grappler is used to pick up large pieces of concrete or other material and lift it into a dump truck. Excavator thumbs do similar type of work but are more precise in their movement and can pick up harder-to-reach materials. The breaker is essentially a heavy duty jackhammer used to break apart cement and other harder materials. It takes training and experience to properly and effectively use these tools.
