Long reach building demolition

In the case of high-rise structures, our London demolition services include floor by floor building deconstruction which is a demanding and challenging type of building demolition. Due to the risk a high building may pose to adjacent structures while being demolished, it is not always possible to use long-reach machinery. This kind of demolition technique requires however a soft-strip services to be performed in the first place. Having the building soft-stripped of any installations, systems, doors, windows etc., so that it is only a concrete shell what is left, the building may be demolished from the top to the bottom floor by floor. Very often a crane is mounted to facilitate bringing excavators or any other necessary equipment at the relevant floor.

Scrap Metal Handling And Recycling

Except for hazardous materials or substances, one may also encounter lots of steel at their demolition site, either as a primary supporting structure of the building or parts of various installations as piping or ductwork. There are a few options you may choose from while thinking what to do with steel components present in your demolition project, but not all of them are worth considering. This certainly includes sending the scrap metal to the landfill at quite a high cost. A way better idea is to recycle steel, which is free of charge. But the option of the highest interest among clients is selling the salvage material, which helps minimising the project's costs.

Our cheap London demolition contractors offer scrap metal recycling in North West, South, East, and across all Greater London area helping clients recycle and sell scrap steel effectively saving their time and costs related to demolition project. In case there is a need to remove a steel structure from the site, we use professional equipment to cut steel into pieces easy to manage and ready to be recycled. In the event steel s structures are of a greater size, a professional London demolition companies uses sometimes explosives to knock it down. It therefore examines where the structure should be weakened and where are the supports that charges should be affixed to.

This way the structure collapses in a desired direction and then may be sliced into proper pieces. Before the steel may be recycled, demolition company has got one more task to do, i.e. sorting the material in order to separate radioactive materials and separate ferrous pieces from non-ferrous ones.

Concrete Crushing London

It is safe to say that concrete is the most widely used material in construction, therefore in a demolition process one may expect to deal with a fair amount of it. It is not so obvious at a first glance that old concrete is also a material which you may recycle and which definitely helps offsetting demolition project costs. Crushed concrete may be reused on site on a multiple ways, either for making a new concrete, or used for levelling, road bases, landscaping , structural filling and more. Various methods of re-using old concrete make concrete recycling a far more beneficial process than sending a great amount of the material to the landfill.

Do you need a national demolition company offering concrete crushing in London? We have the right equipment to crush any type of concrete material that can be easily recycled. As it's a part of our demolition solutions, it allows you to save money on your project. Because we provide on-site concrete crushing service in London area, there is no need to transport concrete debris outside the demolition site. Concrete crushing is a way of concrete salvaging and consists of several steps to be taken. First and foremost, in order to remove concrete from a building, the latter has to be torn down, often with the use of professional machinery such as long- and high-reach excavators further equipped with hammers, etc. Then the extraneous materials as glass, metal and other must be separated.

Furthermore, the demolition crew crushes the concrete into smaller pieces. This is managed either by bringing the concrete crusher on-site, which is filled with concrete with the use of excavators, or by taking the concrete to a recycling plant. If, having been crushed in the crusher, there are still some bigger pieces of concrete, the process repeats, and are crushed again. Lastly, to make sure there is no scrap metal in the crushed concrete, which might have gone through the crusher, the crew uses electromagnets to remove any pieces of metal. Here you can check our museum moving services.

Concrete crushing services

One may distinguish three main types of crushers used by largest London demolition firms. There are jaw crushers, where the concrete is crushed between two jaws oriented in vertical position. One of them remains in the same position all the time, while the other is a swing jaw moving forwards and backwards. All pieces of crushed concrete remain in place unless they are small enough to pass a crushing chamber. This ensures that all the pieces are of similar size and there are no greater ones that are more difficult to manage.

This kind of crushers uses a compressive force to handle the concrete. Impact crushers use an impact force on the other hand. They may be either crushers using force of a hammer positioned on a rotor, or ones that use a rotor with tips hitting the pieces of concrete against some kind of a hard surface, typically an anvil. The size of crushed concrete id determined by the rotor speed and distance at which the pieces are thrown against the anvil. There are also cone crushers, although not so often used as jaw and impact crushers. They crush concrete by closing the gaps between the mantle line adjusted on the central vertical spindle and concave liners adjusted to the crusher frame. When concrete pieces are small enough, they fall out through the opening designed at the bottom of the crusher for this purpose. Get in touch with us to calculate demolition costs.
