There is a great deal of time and energy devoted to the engineered pre-planning phase of every demolition project. Special consideration is placed on environmental issues, public safety and health risks, employee safety hazards, and recycling processes. Companies that perform demolition services are considered specialty contractors. Associated is one of the largest demolition contractors specializing in demolition, asbestos removal and concrete crushing in Massachusetts.
Associated building wreckers is also a provider of temporary or permanent roll off containers for construction cleanup, roofing debris removal, and demolition waste. Each of our roll off vehicles is radio dispatched and gps enabled to make sure we arrive to your jobsite on time, every time.
If asbestos material is more than slightly damaged, or if you are going to make changes in your home that might disturb it, repair or removal by a professional is necessary. Before you have your house remodeled or demolished, you will have to find out whether asbestos materials are present in order to obtain any kind of building or demolition permit.
Demolition is typically thought of as blowing up buildings or swinging a wrecking ball in order to take a building down. What most people do not realize is that demolition is an engineered process of safely and efficiently removing a variety of structures. Implosions make up less than one percent of all demolition projects and the crane with wrecking ball technique is seldom utilized anymore.
At abw, demolition is performed by highly skilled personnel with state of the art equipment. Hydraulic excavators have replaced cranes with wrecking balls and allow demolition to be completed in a much more controlled and efficient manner. Our excavators can be equipped with multiple demolition attachments including hydraulic shears, concrete processors, hammers, grapples and magnets. These attachments are easily interchangeable and provide alternative tools for completing demolition of various structures.
Associated building wreckers is fully committed to recycling, not because it’s the law, but because it’s the right thing to do. At the end of a building’s life, demolition generates large amounts of wood, metal and masonry that can be reused or recycled. Our strategic partnerships with outside recycling facilities in the northeast means we can be extremely competitive on each and every project.
During the initial investigation of the project we will identify those items that can be salvaged for resale at our facility. Often times these are cast iron radiators, boilers, plumbing fixtures, cabinetry, mantles and various architectural pieces. Every pound of reused material that comes out of the project is a direct cost savings to our customers.
