Controlled Demolition

Controlled Precast Concrete Structure Demolition

One advantage of using concrete panels for construction is the ability to adapt a structure as needs change. Often, warehouses and manufacturing facilities are made using precast concrete panels for this very reason. Changing configurations of assembly lines or the need for additional space are often cited as reasons for demolishing parts of a panel structure without disturbing the parts that will continue to be used. In fact, sometimes demolition is done while manufacturing and warehousing activities continue.

Why Controlled Demolition?

Controlled demolition is the preferred method of taking down a concrete structure when blasting or using a wrecking ball is not a possibility. Precast concrete panels are taken down in sections rather than a complete structure take down.

Controlled demolition is much more than taking a hammer to concrete panels and shattering them. Controlled demolition requires strict attention to detail. The right tools, the right crew, and the right equipment must be in place before demolition begins. A plan of demolition must be drawn up and then followed so that the process of taking a structure down is a thoughtful process – which is critical if the takedown is part of a renovation and not a complete building demolition.
