Are you in the market for commercial demolition services and have a few questions before choosing the right contractor? It is always wise to get familiar with the process so that you can contribute to the initial consultation. When you know the right questions to ask, you will get the most out of the first meeting.
At Mikula Contracting , we understand what it takes to ensure quality results for every project. We’re proud to be an experienced demolition contractor who encourages questions and is always ready with permits, proof of experience, and detailed safety procedures. If you find a contractor who skirts around answering these crucial questions, look elsewhere.
The Commercial Demolition Process
As you’re looking into the demolition cost, it will be helpful to know what all goes into the commercial demolition process. You may think it sounds easy to drive a bulldozer over a building and dispose of the trash, but the system is more complicated than that. For each square foot that is needed to be demolished are safety protocols that need to be followed.
Our team at Mikula Contracting takes each step seriously, giving you peace of mind to know that the experts are on site. Here’s an overview of some of the things that we do to ensure quality results for your demolition:
- Necessary Permits and City Checklist: We always start by getting the essential permits for the project. Having permits in hand is a necessary step before we bring the heavy equipment on site. Additionally, we work closely with the city or town offices to complete all necessary checklist items for the area, such as cutting off the water on the property before we start digging.
- Full Commercial Demolition: At Mikula Contracting, we bring the heavy equipment to the site to safely demolish any buildings that need to be removed. We’ll create a custom demolition plan, depending on the location and size of the building.
- Items for Reuse or Disposal: If a complete building is to be demolished, there is always a lot of debris that will need to be removed from the site. We handle everything that is necessary so that you don’t have any unwanted materials left behind. This process can be lengthy and tedious but worth it.
- Hazardous Chemicals Disposal: The building is searched for dangerous chemicals to dispose of appropriately. The environmental implications of demolishing a building and letting harsh chemicals out into the air can be hazardous to the surrounding community. The team will be thorough and responsible.
Safety Inspection and Preparation
When you sign up with our commercial demolition service, you will find that strict rules and regulations are followed to get the project done correctly. For commercial properties, there are a variety of steps to follow to prepare for the demolition process.
Before the project is underway, we put together a plan for every step of the demolition process.Following these steps before demolition begins is vital for the safety of everyone in the area. It is your due diligence to proceed with the demolition responsibly, taking no shortcuts. Hire a demo team that responsibly follows safety protocols.
Once the preparation is complete and your plan is finalized, then we can start on the commercial demolition project. These services are available for a variety of buildings, including:
- Commercial Buildings
First, the building will be cleared out and marked with notices of the project date, warning the public to keep out. In addition, surrounding streets and walkways are blocked off.
Then the building demolition will proceed. If we are taking down a high-rise building vs. a single-floor office building, there are appropriate methods of destruction for each.
Sometimes a wrecking ball or a controlled explosion may be used. Other times, an excavator is enough. Our expert team will help you find the proper method for your building.
Clean Up and Disposal
At Mikula Contracting, we follow through to take care of every detail until the end. Some benefits to hiring our demolition company for the cleanup process include:
- Recycling: The lumber, cement, and structural materials can sometimes be recycled and used for other projects. Our commercial demolition team knows where to take the items so they can be repurposed.
- Trash Removal: Save yourself a dumpster rental and a headache, and leave the rubble cleanup to us. You may not realize how much work the cleanup project is until you’ve put in too many hours to count.
- Preparing the Land: Once all of the materials are removed from the land, our team at Mikula Contracting will clean up and prepare the ground for the next project. You don’t have to worry about leveling out the soil or digging out the foundation ─ we do it for you.
