Our Building Demolition Process

demolition campanyIf you encounter old buildings in Harahan, you’ve probably asked yourself how many more years will it stand strong. Every building truly has a lifespan termed as design life and when this design life is over, the structure is considered not safe for occupation nor is it considered safe for neighboring buildings.

Just like how the diverse region of Jefferson Parish would allow you the ability to explore nature just ten minutes away from downtown, our demolition services will give you ways to explore your property from our demolition service to help clear your land for your new construction project.

So if you need an old structure to be replaced by new ones, here’s how we can help you:

We Conduct a Thorough Survey

Before we do any destruction, breaking down, or removal of a structure in your property, we do a complete and thorough survey of the structure and its parameters. These are two types of surveys that we conduct—the building survey and the structural survey.

  • The Building survey involves checking the following parameters:
    • Types of conduction material used
    • How the building was used
    • The presence of wastewater and hazardous materials or chemicals
    • Drainage conditions
    • Shared facilities like common staircases and partition walls with adjoining building
    • Pedestrian and traffic condition near the structure
    • The sensitivity of the neighborhood with demolition noise, dust, vibration, and impact on traffic
  • The structural survey involves the inspection of the following:
    • How the structure was constructed
    • The conditions of the structural system and structural conditions of basements, underground tanks, and vaults
    • The general condition of the building
    • The original structural system of the structure’s design

We Remove All Hazardous Materials

If during our initial survey, we found hazardous materials in the structure, our team of specialized and trained personnel will remove all of these including asbestos minerals, petroleum contamination, and radioactive metals.

We Prepare a Detailed Demolition Plan

We don’t just demolish. We make sure we demolish properly and safely. We believe that a successful demolition project begins with a demolition plan that will result in that success. For this reason, our detailed demolition plan includes crucial demolition aspects such as:

  • The location of the structure to be demolished.
  • Its distance to adjacent buildings, streets, and other structures.
  • The structural support system of the building
  • The detailed procedure for the demolition process including the sequence of demolishing structural members
  • The method of demolition to be used
  • All the precautionary measures for the protection of the public, the demolition team, and all other structures.
  • How the demolished building debris will be handled.
  • The specific timeline for the completion of the demolition process

We Comply With Every Safety Measure

Demolition

We adhere to all safety standards in the demolition process to make sure that all the workers, site supervisors, engineers, as well as plant and equipment operators are safe from all potential hazards and possible safety issues that may arise. Our safety measures for our workers include:

  • Briefing of all workers about the potential hazards
  • Removal of all flammable goods from the site
  • Flammable materials are stored in proper storage facilities
  • Firefighting appliances are stationed in the demolition site until the demolition process is finished
  • Stationing medical and first aid facilities

We also have precautionary measures for protecting the public and nearby structures which involves the building of temporary protective structures such as:

  • Scaffolding
  • Protective screens

We Use the Best Demolition Method

In this sparse suburban town of Harahan where there are lots of bars, restaurants, and coffee shops sprawling the downtown area, we offer the best demolition services with the right demolition method for your structure depending on your purpose and the structural system of your building.

There are two types of demolition methods for buildings and structures in Harahan: non-explosive and explosive demolition. For smaller structures and smaller structural components of a big building, we use top-of-the-line equipment in non-explosive demolition like:

  • Sledgehammer
  • Excavators and bulldozers
  • Wrecking balls
  • High reach excavators

For the explosive method or implosion, we fix the main supports of the building like the columns, beams, and slab, with explosives. When the columns collapse, so does the structure.
