Commercial demolition FAQs

What types of commercial buildings can you demolish?

The Major Projects Group has a wide ranging portfolio of commercial demolitions across Australia. We’ve executed commercial demolitions for: retail structures, warehouses, factories, parking garages, hospitals, service stations, hotels, schools, universities, churches, cinemas, government buildings, towers, airports, operational facilities involved in defence, high-security facilities and more.

What assessments need to be performed before a commercial site can be demolished?

Commercial demolition can include dismantling, decommissioning and wrecking commercial structures. Consequently, risk assessments and pre-demolition plans are vital to commercial demolition. These assessments help create efficient, safe and effective demolitions. Demolition engineers and demolition consultants work with project stakeholders such as the duty holder and councils to complete these assessments.

Pre-demolition plans are a way of carefully assessing and accounting for a commercial site’s unique characteristics that will influence the demolition processes. These are devised prior to demolition to help mitigate any potential hurdles like time delays, regulatory processes, safety concerns, etc. As such, they help to increase the efficiency of the demolition process.

Risk assessments analyse the demolition processes in terms of risks and hazards. These not only include potential harms to employees and the public, but also neighbouring buildings and the environment.

What is a Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS)?

A Safe Work Method Statement, or SWMS, is an Australian legislative requirement. It documents the high-risk construction activities that are going to be conducted at a site, the potential hazards that may result and how these hazards and risks will be controlled. A SWMS is designed to help organisations and employees identify, understand and track hazards and safety.

How much does a commercial demolition cost?

Each commercial demolition has its own distinctive characteristics including its size and complexity. This means accurately determining the cost of a commercial demolition project cannot be done without first having an expert demolition consultant review the site and project.
