What can be done of a building that has been under construction for quite a long time now? Whatever be the reason for it, the building is of no use to anyone than birds and stray animals. So, why just block such a usable land. Instead break it down and build some nice good buildings on it. Also, no one can stay in a damaged building or a building that can fall at any moment. There are many such buildings in different parts of the cities all over the world like Birkenhead property in Auckland New Zealand. Such buildings cannot be repaired now and need to be pulled down. A good building can be built after pulling down this fractured structure that is of no use to anyone. Many times there are buildings built illegally on illegal lands. Such buildings at some moment of time are ought to be pulled down. Small houses and small buildings do not require much of a hard work to be broken down. But tall and big buildings need huge machineries and equipments and other means to be pulled down. The method by which any of these structures, either small or big, is pulled down is known as demolition. Thus pulling down a building is known as building demolition. Demolition works are generally legally executed and are carried out after a long amount of make ready. The make ready for a demolition usually consists of evacuating the building as well a few adjoining buildings and structures. Let us now get into the details of building demolition.
Demolition is a process in which an existing building or any such structure is pulled down using some machines, tools and equipments. There can be various methods employed for the purpose of demolition. The time required for this demolition process to complete depends on the method used. A few methods that are traditionally being used for demolition take some more time as compared to a few used rarely. For small buildings less machinery is required and for huge set-ups big machines and equipments are utilised. Generally demolition is carried out either of buildings built illegally or of the one’s that are prone to fall soon or are on the verge of falling down.
Prior to demolishing a building it is carefully studied and analysed. All the parts of the building are checked with details. The parts that can easily be pulled down are noted along with the ones that are difficult or strong enough to be pulled down. Then a proper means of breaking down these strong and weak parts is decided upon.
After this initial study, the adjoining buildings and structures are evacuated so that no one gets harmed due to the dust and debris of the building that is being demolished. After evacuation the actual demolition work starts where the building is actually pulled down using different machines, tools and equipments.
