Selective Demolition involves sequencing the demolition activities to allow the separation and sorting of building materials. In general, domestic wastes such as furniture, household appliances, etc., metal components such as window frames, pipes, etc., timber components such as doors, wooden floors, etc., other wastes such as tiles, asphaltic materials, ceramic products should be removed one by one first.
The main demolition shall begin after all the above non-structural materials have been stripped and removed. As most old building blocks are built with brick walls on concrete frames, the percentage of brick is extremely high, ranging from 60% to 80%. To avoid mixing the non-recyclable bricks and tiles with the broken concrete, it is highly recommended to plan the demolition sequence such that brick walls are demolished first and stockpiled separately before the demolition of structural members.
Selective demolition maximizes efficiency by reducing waste, repurposing reusable materials, and lessening environmental impact. A selective demolition can be done on everything from small residential units to large-scale commercial buildings. Although the demands and fine-tuning of each demolition process are contingent on the structure itself.
The same steps for selective demolition apply to projects large and small. The process always begins with a survey identifying hazardous materials and quantifying recyclable materials. Once the numbers have been assessed, Allied Demolition, Inc. establish your clearances and start on your project determining a plan of attack and that’s when we are going to send in the mechanics, electricians, and plumbers. In most cases, a building slotted for selective demolition is still a ‘live’ building, which means that the main operative functions of the structure need to be “cut and capped” to ensure a safe demolition process and to prep materials for removal and recycling, if possible. The electrician will limit or cut off power to the area chosen for demolition, the mechanic will shut down the HVAC systems, and the plumbers will cap open piping. If the project is large enough, they may also need to shut down utilities entirely. After we shut down the utilities is necessary to send in the labor our well training demolition crew.
The selective demolition can include: dismantlement and removal of unwanted warehouse sections, removal of penthouses, chimney or stack demolition, silo demolition, air handling system or dust collection system removals, selective dismantlement of obsolete structures, and so on.
