Flexible scheduling includes off-business hours or weekends

Choosing selective demolition can add value to existing buildings by re-purposing the space. Every project has unique requirements and some businesses have to keep operating during remodeling. Catalyst Construction Company closely coordinates scheduling to meet the client’s needs. In order to minimize disruptions to daily operations and maximize safety, flexible work hours can be scheduled during off-business hours or weekends.

Thorough site preparation proceeds the demolition process

Prepping for selective demolition begins with cutting off or capping electricity, water and HVAC services. Thorough site preparation proceeds the demo process. If portions of the building are active work environments, utility services are professionally re-directed. The work space is sealed off especially in occupied buildings. In many cases, installing a temporary lighting system is necessary to provide a safe work site. With high rise selective demolition,  debris must be transferred outside of the building into a dumpster for sorting and recycling.

Debris removal warrants high levels of safety

Assessing which materials are hazardous or recyclable is the first step in the demolition process. Safely removing hazardous materials, such as asbestos is crucial. The safety of business employees and customers as well as our crews is paramount. At Catalyst Construction Company, debris removal warrants high levels of safety. Essential protocols are necessary for friable asbestos (if it is easily crushable and could become airborne). Specific municipal asbestos regulations must be followed for its safe removal and disposal. As for the remaining materials, often close to 90% of it on a project site is salvageable or recyclable. All non-recyclable debris is taken to the landfill. Various materials are separated and sorted on site:

  • Carpet
  • Concrete, brick, tiles etc.
  • Ceiling tiles
  • Flooring
  • Insulating material
  • Metals – iron, steel, copper, brass, etc
  • Piping
  • Plasterboard
  • Roofing materials
  • Soils
  • Wiring and conduit
  • Wood

Recycling as much as possible offsets demolition costs and minimizes the impact on the environment.

Core structure is intact after selective demolition

With work site preparation in place, then the main systematic dismantling of the defined interior space begins. This is the final phase of selective interior demolition. It involves removing all non-supporting structures, such as:

  • Fixtures and fittings
  • Flooring
  • Plumbing
  • Lighting & cabling
  • Ceilings
  • Internal walls & wall linings
  • Non-structural walls

The demolition team leaves behind only the essential supporting columns, shoring up certain areas as needed. With the core structure intact and integrity of the building retained, the space is then cleaned and prepared for remodeling.
