What happens before you demolish a building?
So, before the actual demolition can occur, many things have to be looked into so the process can go as safely and smoothly as possible. Let's go through the pre-building demolition steps…
1. Conduct a building survey… This step, in short, is a study of what the building is made of, how it was made, and other psychical conditions. They need to know where the build is. Is there traffic or neighbors to take into consideration? All this information will inform the demolition team how best to go about the job.
2. Remove any hazards… Specific personnel removes dangerous materials such as asbestos, flammable materials, and other hazards. This is to keep the actual demolition as safe as possible.
3. Make a plan…With the information at hand and the hazards removed the experts can come up with a detailed plan. This plan will explain how the building demolition will be carried out, how they will clean up afterward and the best equipment needed. Budgets are also taken into consideration during this step.
4. Inform crew of the safety measures… Anyone working on the demolition needs to be advised on how to stay safe will preforming the job. Are their hazards to be aware of? How can they stay safe from injuries?
5. Finally, the company needs to secure proper permits. With permits and the area blocked off from the public, they can move on to the actual building demolition!
