About the heading Demolition Contractors and Equipment in Yellow Pages®
Demolition contractors are responsible for the demolition and removal of existing buildings so that new development can occur. Demolition is different to deconstruction, which involves taking a building apart while carefully preserving valuable elements for re-use.
For small buildings, such as houses, the building is pulled down either manually or mechanically using large hydraulic equipment such as elevated work platforms, cranes, excavators or bulldozers. Larger buildings may require the use of a wrecking ball or even explosives.
Before any demolishing takes place there are many steps that need to be followed including performing asbestos abatement, removing hazardous or regulated materials, obtaining necessary permits, submitting necessary notifications, disconnecting utilities, and development of site specific safety and work plans. Demolition contractors may offer all or some of these services.
Demolishing equipment including spare parts is available for purchase or hire from many specialist outlets throughout Australia. Some demolition contractors may also provide maintenance services for demolition equipment. Demolition contractors are located in cities, metropolitan areas and many regional centres.If you are looking for information on demolition contractors and equipment look under this heading in Yellow Pages®.
