It may occur to most people that demolishing a structure or a building is an easy task to do but only demolition companies in Melbourne know what is it like to demolish anything. There is actually a lot that needs to be done before actually demolishing the structure. It can be quiet dangerous if the process is not properly planned before which is why we are here to guide you about the steps that are required in the demolition process. Let’s find out what these steps are: 

Steps Involved in the Demolition Process 

  1. Creating a Plan 

The first and the most important step before demolition companies go for the job is to create a plan. There are several methods that are used to demolish a structure depending on the type of structure that needs to be demolish, the material it is made of, measurements and size and lastly the nearby places that might directly or indirectly be affected. The goal of creating a plan is to come up with something that is within the budget, safe and most efficient. 

  1. Permits 

Demolishing anything has a major impact on the landscape of the area that overall impacts the property value and taxes of the nearby area as well which is why it is mostly a requirement to get a permit before doing the job. Note that requirements of getting a permit for demolishing a structure depend from city to city. 

  1. Site Preparation 

This is also one of the most important steps in the demolition process as one can’t just come and destroy the structure on their own with everything still inside it. You need to clean out the building and have to get rid of the utilities like electricity and gas and other hazardous materials. In short, everything that is inside needs to be cleaned. 

  1. Demolition 

Finally, the main step of demolition occurs once all the above mentioned processes have been completed. This step involved getting actually rid of the building so once you have created your entire plan, obtain the permits required and prepared the site as per the demolition requirements, you can finally step in to perform demolition of the structure or building. 

Today’s advancing construction technology these days means that there are various new methods of demolishing a building. Some of these methods of demolishing include implosion, high reach arm, crane and ball and selective demolition. However, the type of method that is used totally depends on the structure of the building, its location, its purpose to be demolished and lastly the way in which the debris results from the demolition that will be disposed off.
