DCI explains the meaning of a Demolition

Posted by Dci Demolitions on 12:40 PM with No comments

Demolition is the tearing down of buildings and other structures. Demolition contrasts with deconstruction, which involves taking a separate building, carefully preserving valuable elements for reuse.


For small buildings such as houses, which are only two or three stories high, demolition is a fairly simple process. The building is pulled down manually or mechanically using large hydraulic equipment: elevated work platforms, cranes, excavators or bulldozers. Larger buildings may require the use of a wrecking ball, a heavy weight on a cable that was opened by a crane on the side of buildings. Wrecking balls are especially effective against masonry, but are more difficult to control and often less efficient than other methods. New methods may use rotational hydraulic shears and silenced rock circuit attached to excavators to cut or break through wood, steel and concrete. The use of shears is especially common when flame cutting would be dangerous.
