Costs for controlled demolition vary by building size, recycling goals, the density of the surrounding area, whether a building has a concrete structure or is made of structural steel, the proposed schedule, equipment needs, hauling requirements, and other considerations. Contact ATI for project assessment and an estimate.
Controlled demolition, whether the entire building is being demolished or only selected areas, is ideal when a tall building or high-rise reaches a point where it is damaged beyond repair, structurally unsound, or experiencing hazardous materials that can’t be abated.
They are often both used in demolition. Selective demolition is the demolition of only a portion of a building or certain material. Controlled demolition refers to the implosion of a tall building or large building, sometimes called a free fall. Both require careful planning.
Demolition waste is all debris from a commercial demolition project, including concrete demolition. It usually consists of both hazardous materials (most notably, asbestos) and building materials (such as drywall, tiles, glass, concrete, metal, wood, etc.). While hazardous debris needs to be carefully handled and disposed of, non-hazardous demolition debris can often be recycled or reused.
