Guide to Demolition During a Project

When your project requires demolition to take place, there are regulations to consider as well as other considerations when carrying out the demolition process. This article provides a complete guide to demolition during a construction project. This applies to both domestic and commercial projects that require demolition. You will need to consider:


  • Asbestos management and the risk of asbestos being displaced during the demolition process.


  • The equipment or machinery that you may need to ensure safe and successful demolition takes place.


  • Make sure that you put safety as a top priority in terms of arranging for demolition zones, safe zones and careful management of debris when the demolition takes place.


  • You are following all of the other relevant legislation and have put all of the other required safety regulations and considerations into place. You may want to consider putting together a full plan of action for the safety of the public and workers if you are carrying out a large-scale demolition project.

Asbestos Management When Carrying Out Demolition

Demolition can displace asbestos into the atmosphere which makes the demolition process dangerous. Asbestos fibres when breathed in over time and extended exposure can cause mesothelioma or other lung-related diseases. Asbestos was used extensively as an insulator until it was banned in the 2000s so any buildings that were built before the 2000s are deemed to have to have an asbestos survey carried out before demolition can take place. The HSE has other demolition guidelines which you can read about here.
