Demolition Equipment Maintenance
Technical Demolition and Standard Demolition Contractor Services

Universal Wrecking Corp. provides standard demolition and technical demolition contractor services throughout the United States.  We have the capabilities and expert demolition laborers and operators to handle everything from the standard demolition of a one story structure to the technical demolition of an entire plant or facility.

DEMOLITION PRACTICES BY METHOD

Methods of destruction employed at demolition sites include the use of heavy machines, explosions/implosions, and hand methods.

HEAVY EQUIPMENT / MACHINERY DEMOLITION OPERATIONS

Demolition equipment includes large motorized vehicles such as bulldozers with rakes, top loaders, backhoes, skid loaders/bobcats, hydraulic excavators, and other similar machinery used for transporting, moving, or dislodging of materials at a demolition site. Cranes equipped with wrecking balls, clamshells, or buckets may also be employed.

To demolish one-or two-story buildings, the heavy equipment is used to to perform an undermining process. The strategy is to undermine the building while controlling the manner and direction in which it falls. The demolition project manager must determine where undermining is necessary so that a building falls in the desired manner and direction. The walls are typically undermined at a building's base, but this is not always the case as building designs may dictate otherwise. Safety and cleanup considerations are also taken into account in determining the methods to be used. The structure and components are maintained wet during demolition.
 
Cranes may also be used and are typically equipped with wrecking balls, clamshells or buckets, which are used in a variety of ways. All three may be dropped or swung against the structure to demolish it. When demolition is accomplished by crane, the process can begin at the roof and progress continually downward, or alternate up and down.

EXPLOSIONS/IMPLOSIONS

Building implosions utilizing explosive devices constitute a rarely-used demolition technique. In simplest form, this method is accomplished through the use of explosive charges placed strategically throughout a building so that the building col-lapses in on itself and debris does not radiate outward to any appreciable distance.

HAND METHODS OF DEMOLITION

Hand methods refer to the use of motorized and non-motorized tools that can be operated by hand and are not used for transportation. The methods discussed include not only those used in the gutting of building interiors prior to razing, but also those used during razing itself. Hand methods allow much greater control over a building's collapse than other methods and permit easier segregation of demolition materials for resale or recycling than other demolition methods. In addition, hand methods may be required because of workspace limitations.
