ROBOTIC DEMOLITION

C.D.S are expert controlled demolition contractors, with extensive experience in Brokk robotic demolition. As site clearance is often an integrated part of construction projects, we provide a comprehensive controlled demolition service using remote control Brokk machinery. This method is an efficient, safe and fast way of removing concrete from large and small scale operations, leaving a clear and structurally safe environment for the next stage of the project. Robotic demolition machines can be equipped it with hydraulic breakers, concrete crushers, drilling equipment, wall saws, or buckets to perform many functions.

 

HAND CRUNCHING

Hydraulic Crunching is an extremely effective way to carry out Controlled Demolition of a variety of materials that is also friendly to the environment.
The jaws of the breaker are placed on the open edge of the concrete structure and hydraulic pressure is applied to force the jaws to close, crushing the concrete into rubble. As the procedure is non-percussive there is limited risk of damage to nearby structures and the low levels of noise minimises disruption.

 

NON-EXPLOSIVE BURSTING

 

SOFT STRIP

Our operatives are experienced and trained in carrying out ‘soft-strip’ out projects where there is a requirement for non-structural elements of a building to be removed. We use soft-strip techniques where we can remove recyclable materials such as timber, metal and plastics, prior to the full demolition of site or where a building is undergoing major refurbishment.

Using skill sets similar to those used in decommissioning work, we plan soft-strips systematically and ensure that site management is of the highest quality.
Soft-stripping allows us to segregate waste materials and, as a licensed waste carrier, ensure that we maximise the amount of material that is reused.

 

HYDRO DEMOLITION

Hydro demolition is the favoured method of concrete removal for a majority of projects due to the vibration-free process. This removes concrete while allowing the steel reinforcement bar to remain in place without damaging it, which is something not always possible with percussion-based concrete removal.
