What is Soft Strip Demolition?

When a building is refurbished, the contents of the building need to be taken into account to ensure the safety of the professionals and the people in the surrounding areas. Some buildings may contain hazardous materials which need to be properly disposed of, or there may be furnishings and fabrics that need to be removed so the building can be returned to its original state before work can begin.

Our soft strip demolition service takes care of the structure’s components that need to be removed to facilitate a refurbishment or repair project. We will use processes that are specifically designed for the fittings or furnishings, ensuring that they are removed or dismantled efficiently and safely, using the latest tools to ensure you avoid costly delays. The environmentally friendly nature of our work means that we recycle as much as possible – in excess of 90% of the material collected.

      May I take this opportunity to thank you all for your efforts during the Christmas and New Year shifts.  The works were not easy by any stretch of the imagination, compounded by adverse weather conditions , working away from home and site conditions that were not ideal.  We completed the works as far as we could and handed back both possessions on time without any accidents or incidents which we should be proud of.  We had a couple of high level visits from the client who were content with our efforts and achievements.
