While most people’s definition of demolition is simply blowing things up, there is so much more to it than that. The type of space being demolished, the type of demolition being implemented, and the scope of the debris field are all taken into consideration.
Here are some specific types of demolition:
INTERIOR DEMOLITION CHICAGO, IL
Essentially, interior demolition is when the insides are taken apart, the whole space gutted, while leaving the outside of the building in perfect shape. This is often done when a building is to be renovated or repurposed. It can involve taking out walls, piping, and even the ceilings.
SELECTIVE DEMOLITION CHICAGO, IL
Selective demolition is when a section of a structure is removed without disrupting the rest of the building and the surrounding area. This can apply to the interior, or exterior, of the structure.
CONCRETE DEMOLITION CHICAGO, IL
Since most buildings have a concrete foundation, and lots of industrial warehouses have concrete walls, concrete demolition is the most common hurdle for most contractors.
DISMANTLING/DECONSTRUCTION CHICAGO, IL
More nuanced and delicate than the more abrupt demolition, dismantling or deconstructing a space allows the items removed to be used again. It is a far more labor intensive, slow paced process, but the possibility of recycling or reusing the items inside makes up for the outright inefficiency.
TOTAL DEMOLITION CHICAGO, IL
Just like it sounds, this is a comprehensive demolition that removes the entire structure, and this is usually done in a few different ways.
MECHANICAL DEMOLITION CHICAGO, IL
For this, we use special machinery you have probably seen at many construction sites. Wrecking balls, hydraulic excavators, jack hammers, and so forth, tear down the structure in question with speed, but very little finesse. This is most common in total demolition.
