Structural Demolition – Northwood
Structural Demolition of Residential Property in Northwood
Perfect Contracting are currently performing structural demolition works for our client Horizon Habitats at Northwood, Sydney. The works included the removal of a section of the external wall of a residential house to allow for windows to be installed.
Our team members first established all tools and equipment onto the site and setup the loading dock where they could load out the waste and rubble. Then our team members secured the site with temporary security fences to ensure the safety of the public during the duration of the works.
Once the access and security was established our site supervisor liaised directly with the engineer from our client to establish the correct methodology for the removal of the section from the external supporting wall.
Once the correct methodology was established our team members began by unloading and setting up our Acrow Props to prepare to prop the sub floor above to ensure the structure stayed intact and secure during the demolition process.
When the engineer was confident there was sufficient support from the Acrow props to support the structure then our team members began by using our Husqvarna Concrete demo saw to cut the bottom of the wall.
When the bottom was cut right through then they cut both sides. Our team members then began hammering the wall with our Hilti TE70’s being very careful to remove it section by section. Once we had nearly reached the top then we cut the remaining section at the top of the wall this ensured for a smooth clean finish.
All the waste and rubble was loaded into our Isuzu Tipper Trucks for removal from site.
Result: The client was very happy with the outcome of the works involved and how efficient and professional our team members were.
