A demolition company in Glasgow has responded to the buildings on fire due to the heatwave. Unfortunately these houses and factories will need to be demolished with immediate effect.
Total Demolition company In Gladiator has been contracted to deal with the aftermath. They have already deployed specialist demolition equipment. According to the demolition contractors website, they offer one of the leading demolition companies Glasgow, Dumbarton, Clydebank, Paisley, Johnstone, Kilbirnle, Kilwinning, Irvine, Kilmarnock, Preswick, Torrance, Galston, Hamilton, Strathaven, Drumclog, Muirkirk, Drumclog, Muirkirk, and surrounding areas
Although not all these areas have been directly affected, it’s thought that total demolition Glasgow has moved equipment around Glasgow to cover the areas within Glasgow It’s expected to take around three weeks to full demolish the properties affected by the fires and of course the waste associated with the demolition phase will have to be taken to specialist waste centres to be recycled.
Total Demolition have also been appointed to clean other areas in the Glasgow area affected by the fires. They currently have 4 demolition excavators in the capital of Glasgow awaiting clearance from the emergency services so the works can commence.
It’s expected to cost hundreds of thousands of pounds to demolish and rebuild these buildings affected, the insurance companies will likely pay the vast majority of this.
The houses that require demolition in Glasgow will need to demolished carefully as asbestos can be present. Asbestos is fire resistance and is cancerous. It was banned from the United Kingdom back in the 1990s as it causes cancer. It has also been removed from other buildings throughout Glasgow.
I would imagine as they tear down the houses, a dust compression system will be used to keep the asbestos fibres from becoming airborne, therefore reducing the risk oh inhalation. Total Demolition have an asbestos team that will manage the entire process, keeping everyone safe.
Looking at some of the buildings that have been damaged, they will need to deploy there high-rise demolition machine as the smaller equipment won’t be able to reach. The problems with these sizes of machines is that they take a lot of room up when in operation.
With a reach of 50 meters, this machine will definitely need its own designated area. It also has its own built in water compression system to keep the dust at bay as they destroy the buildings.
Once the buildings have been demolished, they will they smash the foundations of the buildings and take all the waste away. This also leaves a footprint so the construction of the replacement can start. On a final note, we have been in contact with the demolition contractor in Glasgow and they have said they are well equipped to deal with any given situation and have the experience to substantiate.
If your looking for a respectable demolition company Glasgow, Dumbarton, Clydebank, Paisley, Johnstone, Kilbirnle, Kilwinning, Irvine, Kilmarnock, Preswick, Torrance, Galston, Hamilton, Strathaven, Drumclog, Muirkirk, Drumclog, Muirkirk, we highly recommend Total Demolition.
