The demolition of residential buildings

In this field, too, many different constructions can be encountered from small masonry structures to reinforced concrete buildings and pre-fabricated constructions.

When planning the demolition, the position and construction of the adjacent buildings should be taken into consideration, since they can provide information as to which machines and demolition methods are to be used.

The safety distances, shaft depths (DIN 18007) and maximum permissible vibration levels (DIN 4150) resulting from these circumstances are to be observed.

Especially for small-scale contracts „discounters“ are frequently resorted to, who neglect to dismantle the foundations or even damage adjacent buildings. The subsequent costs quite often exceed the original contract price.

These cases illustrate how important it is for the demolition work to comply with certain quality standards and that the choice of the right specialist company saves trouble, time and money!
