Structural demolition

Demolition of the structure generally only takes a couple of hours.

The day of the demolition will be the noisiest part of the work as excavators pull the house down and rubble is loaded into trucks. For more information visit the noise page.

Just like any house demolition there may be some minor traffic impacts in local streets as equipment is moved to and from the site. Traffic management plans are put in place where necessary to ensure the safety of the public.

During demolition, water is sprayed onto the structure and rubble to suppress dust. This spray can look like dust but is actually a misty cloud of fine water droplets.
