The Process for Inspecting Structures and Buildings before demolition

Every demolition company in Toronto and around Canada provides a pre-demolition process before they begin the demolition works. Local authorities required this process to strengthen the occupational safety environment. Its purpose is to eliminate the potential hazards that may happen during the ongoing deconstruction.

The community establishment’s life span is estimated from 80 to 100 years. When it reaches the full years, the structures are becoming highly dangerous for possible collapsing. The primary reason why demolition is essential for commercial buildings. But before you wish to demolish the building successfully, they conduct initial inspections on the site. Learn more about the process of pre-demolition before they proceed to the deconstruction of the building.

Pre-demolition process before the deconstruction

If you’re curious about the procedures of initial deconstruction, this article will briefly explain them. Here is the usual pre-demolition process.

Surveying establishments

Demolition contractors go to the building to inspect its current conditions, the previous function, building location, structural development, materials, building codes, utilities, facilities, surrounding environment, traffic condition, size, work scope, and possible impact on the community.

Removal of hazardous materials on site

Demolition contractors go to the building to inspect its current conditions, the previous function, building location, structural development, materials, building codes, utilities, facilities, surrounding environment, traffic condition, size, work scope, and possible impact on the community.

Hazardous Waste Experts categorized it into four; materials that have ignitability, corrosivity, reactivity, and toxicity.

Preparation of demolition plan

Demolition contractors and project managers will construct a demolition plan indicating the proper flow of the deconstruction project. It includes a traffic and waste management plan, the sequence of the project, hand tools, and advanced equipment.

Implementation of safety measures

Demolition site workers, project managers, contractors, and other authorized employees will wear personal protective equipment (PPE) such as face masks, safety goggles, construction boots, gloves, and protective clothing. Safety signages will also be displayed on site as visual instruction to the public to minimize the potential risks during the deconstruction process.

Types of demolition methods to perform

After the initial process was done thoroughly, suitable demolition methods will be performed accordingly. There are two types of demolition methods used to deconstruct buildings:

1. Non-explosives demolition method – this type of method often uses hand demolition tools and electrical or gas-powered advanced equipment operated by a skilled worker. It’s applicable for demolishing small to large-sized residential houses and commercial establishments.

2. Implosive demolition method – this type of method often uses dynamites and other explosive devices that are usually installed underneath the building structures. It’s only applicable for infrastructures like tall buildings and skyscrapers with large empty spaces around them.
