Demolition is the process of tearing down buildings and other large built structures. Demolition of small buildings such as a house is a simple process which involves manual tearing down or using large hydraulic equipment such as:

  • Cranes
  • Excavators
  • Bulldozers

Larger buildings, bridges or tall chimneys may be demolished using the technique of building implosion where the building is destroyed using explosives and the structure falls into its own footprint without affecting the neighbouring structures.

Building demolitions can be dangerous in some cases as neighbouring structures may be severely damaged. Other dangers from demolition may include flying debris which may seriously injure or kill onlookers or the workers employed on the demolition site.
