Construction is a funny old business. There is no one more versed in the fact that living in an ideal world doesn’t exist than the average construction worker, due to the nature of the job.
Concrete contractors, as well as controlled concrete demolition London experts in particular know and understand that an ideal world is not something which is all that common due to the nature of the product. Concrete itself, for all of the superiority it has over other building materials, is not known for being particularly forgiving and certainly not an easy thing to work with. As such, there are quite a few imperfectly placed columns, beams and slabs in any build.
What happens when something doesn’t exactly go to an architect’s plan?
Of course, imperfect features are altered or demolished. Controlled Concrete Demolition is of course is what should spring to mind, but how exactly is this done? No doubt the first thought in your mind has gone to detonations and explosives, but that is both an impractical as well as unsafe.
In the real world, you simply can’t get permission to set off bombs, especially in large cities such as Kent or London, and so other means are required.
Most demolition jobs come with quite a few rules and requirements. Most places have very strict noise limits, and vibration limits are also put into place in order to guarantee that no other structures can be damaged by the demolition going on around a site – particularly in environments that may be quite packed together. That, and there’s construction site dust to worry about as well. A specialist controlled concrete demolition contractor will take all of these things into account in each and every site they visit.
There are methods which the demolition contractor will be able to employ, such as hydraulic bursting, which will provide an effective and controlled demolition process which is suitable for sites with both space and noise regulations applied, such as urban areas. Most importantly, hydraulic bursting is one of the safest ways to effectively demolish concrete. Specialist companies are brought in with the machinery and know-how to make even the most imposing mistake be ready to be started anew once more.
