Whether it be high-rise residential or commercial, industrial building or indeed basements, identifying the key risks, planning the demolition process to minimise those risks and maximising the amount of materials for re-use, is key to a successful demolition. GCL understands that demolishing the existing structure, unlocks the value in the land but how it’s done can also save money.
Removing what is inside the building can often be more time consuming and have greater risks associated with it then using machines to demolish the shell. GCL’s demolition team have the experience to tackle any size project and react proactively to clients demands. Our asbestos trained operatives can deal with small or large quantities.
At GCL we understand the increasing administrative burden being placed on companies operating in the construction and development sector. We will design a site specific waste management plan for each project and provide monthly reports on what has been achieved on site.
Recycling makes commercial sense, every ton which stays on site represent a double saving. Demolition protocol is influencing national and local planning authorities to increase the use of secondary aggregates in new build projects. Crushing and screening on site, whenever possible, is GCL’s first choice.
Incorporating the enabling works with the demolition packages save time and money. Whether it be placing pile mats, establishing the site set up, installing haul roads, drainage or service diversions, GCL can shave weeks of you programme by progressing these works while completing the demolition.
