How Selective Demolition Works
The process for our Edmonton interior selective demolition service is straightforward.
It starts with information gathering and project planning, where we go over the building, project plan, survey materials, determine what is salvageable, etc.
Next, we begin the code review process wherein we ensure that we are up to municipal, provincial, and federal codes, which may include limitations on things such as building height, building area, or accessibility.
Building preparation is then necessary as many buildings undergoing selective demolition retain their operative functions. Contractors will cap pipes, turn off HVAC systems, ensure safety of project, etc.
Site stripping is the next step, which involves protecting special components of the building as well as removing all nonstructural materials, including furniture, appliances, windows, fixtures, etc.
After all this setup, the actual interior selective demolition begins.
