Utah Capitol Building Post Selective Demolition

When is it Time for Selective Demolition?

Individuals often turn to selective demolitions for site retention, asbestos removal, building relocation, and site remediation. Heavily fortified, established buildings are often considered for this service. Selective demolition is a fantastic choice for those seeking acute, effective services. Selective demolition isn’t suitable for every situation, however, and a few aspects highlight a site for selective demolition services.

Establishment Projects

Utah Capitol Building Post Selective Demolition

Here’s a current picture of the Utah Capitol Building, where Grant Mackay Demolition performed selective demolition to increase the building’s overall structural stability.

Selective demolition is an adequate solution for large building projects requiring small alterations. Often, a demolition provider will offer problem-free solutions through controlled demolition projects. Such workers are insured and fully licensed—operating beneath an overarching company’s flexibility to serve individuals. Selective demolition benefits establishment projects by providing the following:

  • On-site removal and alterations
  • Non-intrusive services
  • Affordable, insurable provisions

Building Extensions

Sometimes, a building needs a little more breadth. In such cases, selective demolition primes an establishment for additions. Selective demolition contractors may be informed of upcoming additions—preparing a building’s exterior for such construction work. When utilizing selective demolition for building extensions, individual contractors often provide the following for business and homeowners:

  • Creation of new entryways
  • Destruction of stairwells for expansion
  • Removal of archways and entry areas
  • Re-proportion of existing structures to accommodate for shape and scale

Environmental Safety

Sometimes, a structure’s pre-existing areas may damage surrounding environmental areas. Plumbing systems may become entangled with roots—spilling drain water into the ground. Or, nearby water supplies may be harmed through an establishment’s erosion.

In such cases, selective demolition serves a company by removing dangerous, degraded areas. Due to selective demolition’s precision, a structure may be spared while the removal of problem areas occurs. Often, immense consideration is required before active operations begin, and structures are safely prepared for demolition—as to not further disrupt pre-existing damages.

Effective selective demolition utilizes a strict schedule—and individuals are urged to coordinate tasks with operators. Where plant and business operations occur, safety precautions often require dismantlement of utility services before selective demolition occurs. Similarly, a list of various selective demolition projects is often presented to individuals—so as to tailor each project accordingly, customizing it for effectiveness and safety.
