Perth Demolition Contractor: Things We Do At Australian Construction

    If you need a Perth demolition contractor, you can give us a call. But what does a demolition contractor really do? Is it just about explosives?

    While it may sound sad, demolition is sometimes a necessity. A structure is like a phoenix—you have to bring it down so it can give way to a better facility. This is what we do at Australian Construction, and it is called demolition.

    Today, we will show you the things that we specialise in, by the end of this article, you should know what we are capable of, and also consider us to do large-scale demolition projects that you have.  

    What is a demolition?

    Demolition is a science. Sometimes called razing, it is not just about blasting things or pummelling concrete until they turn to small rocks. You need engineers to do the thinking as we do at Australian Construction.

    Demolition requires that you have a plan. This plan will allow the workers to execute not only a safe demolition activity but also an efficient and effective one.

    Demolition is done in many places, but the most common is demolishing a house or a structure. Some parts of the demolition debris are recycled, and most are given back to quarries.

    Now, some demolition projects are small. One example is a two-storey house. This can be done manually, but it can take time. Some projects are huge, like demolishing a building, a tall chimney, or road infrastructure.

    We at Australian Construction can do all of these. On top of this, we also assure you that we are on top of things. If there is new machinery or technology, we are always in the loop and we use them to do our demolishing jobs.

    Manual Demolition

    Before anything else, there are many manual types of demolition that we need to do. If you are going to demolish a building, an excavator or hydraulic machinery is not the first thing that you will see at the job site.

    For example, the first important step is to remove the walls like plyboards and asbestos. There could be hazardous materials in the environment, and we need to take these away by hand. The same goes with regulated materials.

    On top of that, we need to ensure that we have already cut off the power lines, cables, and water supply. We need to know where the plumbing is located. This way, we will not destroy the water lines and waste this precious resource.

    Manual demolition involves the use of hydraulic machinery. These are huge trucks like backhoes and excavators. These are the machines that will pound on the remaining carcass of the building, and then we will use loaders to get the debris out of the area.

    Implosion Demolition

    Another type of demolition that we do is implosion. What this means is that we will use explosive devices to blast the structure. In an implosion, the building will collapse on itself.

    This is a scientific process. Our engineers will figure out where the foundations are. The explosives must be carefully placed in the right places. This is a difficult thing to do, and you should only work with professionals like us to get this done.

    Controlled implosion is a spectacular sight to behold. Our engineers are the ones responsible for making it happen. In an implosion, you will not damage any neighbouring structure. Our expertise can save you from this sort of liability.

    Preparation and Deconstruction 

    Before we do the demolition activity, we need to prepare the building. Depending on the size, this can take either weeks or months. This is especially so for implosions.

    So, what happens in the implosion?

    We need to ensure that all valuables have been removed. All items such as glass, wiring, and insulation must be stripped off. Partitions that do not bear loads must also be removed.

    During the preparation, we will drill holes where we can insert the explosive materials. It is important that during this period, no one else must be allowed to get inside the building. It is also mandatory that we put up a perimeter to ensure that no structure beside you or near you shall be damaged.

    Summary: Perth Demolition Contractor

    If you ever need a Perth demolition contractor, we at Australian Construction are always on standby. We strongly encourage you to give us a call. What happens next is we will discuss your specific project.

    Of course, we will do a visual inspection. One of our engineers will come and see the place. This is critical because the engineer has to assess the area to be demolished.

    Not only will he take a look at the concrete and the foundations, but he will also think how we can best execute the job efficiently, effectively, and most importantly, as safe as possible for everybody.
