Demolition

Pollutants. Emissions. Concepts.

Old industrial installations, dormant commercial and industrial sites, residential high rises from the 1960s and office buildings from the early 1970’s, which are no longer adequate for meeting today´s demands. First and foremost, our task is to compile lists of hazardous building substances and contaminants used in the construction. Consequentially we will design a progressive and appropriate process in dealing with hazardous building materials. At the same time, we will plan the dismantling and demolition while respecting industrial safety and emission control requirements: from the dismantling and demolition concept to licensing and execution planning right through to obtaining the necessary permits. For the tender of the designed measures we will prepare an agenda of services and support to the client throughout the allocation process with a team of specialists. We will manage waste disposal and tend to the organisational challenges of management and supervision of the dismantling and demolition work. These services are provided as a fixed price from a general contractor.

Contaminated Building Substance Investigations

Testing. Evaluating. Reporting.

Hazardous building waste resulting from demolition or disasters is a hazard and an unacceptable risk for users and third parties. They drive up costs and delay deadlines. There is a need for remediation here. We will perform an interdisciplinary investigation of the design requirements preceding demolition. Structural connections with neighbouring buildings, shared walls, the need to secure neighbouring buildings by underpinning. We will support you in recognising and eliminating dangers from the outset.

Tasks

  • Create building material – and building waste registers to prepare performance profiles
  • Calculate masses and quantities for use in task specifications
  • Evaluate stress situations and, separation and remediation requirements
  • Determine constructive interfaces as the basis for planning requirements for the dismantling and demolition

Our Services

  • Obtaining and evaluating building plans
  • Building inspection
  • Record and document hazardous building substances by location, quantity and emission potential
  • Sampling of building materials
  • Analysis and evaluation of materials
  • Classify masses and quantities
  • Specification of requirements from design specifics
  • Waste quality catalogue and waste management preparation

Your Benefits

  • Hazard prevention for users and third parties
  • Acceptance of exposure to the user
  • Speedy demolition and renovation works without delays or accidents
  • Schedule, planning and cost security
  • Expert assistance
  • Years of experience and local knowledge
  • Regional networking
  • Interdisciplinary services from one provider

Contaminated Building Substance Remediation

Investigate. Evaluate. Clearing.

Hazardous building substances according to the definition of the Ordinance on Hazardous Substances are probably found in every building constructed in the twentieth century. This does not necessarily require dismantling. For existing substances such as non-friable asbestos products and carcinogenic mineral fibres, so-called old artificial mineral fibres (AMF), provisions can be made to protect the existing conditions. The need for a selective dismantling of hazardous building materials arises during demolition and renovations, after accidents caused by improper asbestos handling or in the case of an unacceptable risk to users or third parties. We will support you in assessing the dismantling requirements.

Tasks

  • Establish a register of hazardous substances
  • Evaluate stress situations
  • Inform users in coordination with the owner and authorities
  • Monitor dismantling measures
  • Document success of the redevelopment and correct waste disposal

Our Services

  • Establish and document the hazardous building substances according to location, and quantity as well as emission behaviour
  • Evaluate the urgency of the remediation
  • Schedule information events
  • Develop dismantling- disposal concepts
  • Obtain all regulatory approvals
  • Planning, carrying out, managing and technical supervision of the dismantling works and waste disposal
  • Overseeing compliance with all emissions and occupational health and safety measures

Your Benefits

  • Hazard prevention for users and third parties
  • Acceptance of the exposure by the user
  • Speedy demolition- and renovation works without delays or accidents
  • Scheduling, planning and cost security
  • Expert assistance
  • Years of experience and local knowledge
  • Regional networking

Demolition Planning

Comparing. Calculating. Executing.

A detailed plan is necessary before implementing the actions to be taken. An approval plan is essential for the demolition application. The contractors performing the works need the execution plan. The list of services is the key to the calculation of the offer and for comparing efficiency. We will undertake the dismantling and demolition planning for you.

Tasks

  • Definition of targets: What should happen when and how
  • Obtaining of dismantling permits
  • Developing concepts for status quo monitoring and measurements
  • Clarification of construction site logistics
  • Determining requirements based on neighbouring buildings
  • Clearance of UXO as well as existing cables and pipelines, where applicable
  • Development of technical engineering solutions for the selective dismantling and demolition, with geotechnical issues such as underpinning of neighbouring buildings and installing excavation pit lining also being taken into consideration

Our Services

  • Developing and maintaining schedules
  • Dismantling, demolition and disposal concepts
  • Approval planning, and dismantling applications
  • Obtaining further regulatory approvals: Application for water rights for the reinstallation of demolition debris (waste water discharge permit for construction)
  • Execution schedules for dismantling and disposal work
  • Compiling lists of specifications and taking part in the contract awarding
  • Formulating emission and occupational health and safety plans
  • Documentation of status quo situations for neighbouring buildings and traffic routes
  • Establishing the approval plan, establishment of the dismantling application

Your Benefits

  • Scheduling, planning and cost security
  • Expert assistance
  • Years of experience and local knowledge
  • Regional networking
  • Interdisciplinary services from one provider
