Industrial demolition FAQs
What assessments need to be performed before an industrial site can be demolished?
Industrial demolition includes work such as dismantling, deconstruction and decommissioning structures. Accordingly, risk assessments and pre-demolition planning are an essential part of the industrial demolition process. These assessments help create effective, safe and efficient demolitions. Completing these assessments is often the role of demolition engineers and demolition consultants, who work with project stakeholders.
Pre-demolition plans are a method of strategically analysing and inspecting a project site or structure. These are completed before demolition begins. They help to create the best and safest process of demolition with respect to a specific site’s unique features.
Risk assessments help spot any potential risks and hazards to people and the surrounding environment. They document the risks associated with demolition with respect to a project’s unique features. In industrial demolition, compliance with environmental regulation and safety standards is essential to risk assessments.
How much does an industrial demolition cost?
Every industrial demolition is distinct in scale and complexity. Unfortunately there is no way to accurately determine the cost of an industrial demolition without having an expert assess your project. However, if you are interested in cost-effective and safe industrial demolition solutions, contact us at the Major Projects Group to start the quote process.

What is the difference between commercial demolition and industrial demolition?
Unlike commercial demolition, which is the partial or complete dismantlement of commercial structures, such as hospitals, cinemas, malls, hotels, offices, and other similar buildings, industrial demolition is the dismantlement of industrial structures. Examples of industrial structures are oil refineries, manufacturing facilities, chemical plants, power stations, etc.
What type of methodologies do you apply for the demolition of industrial structures?
Although our demolition methodologies vary from one project to another, we, wherever possible, try to use mechanical demolition methods, such as heavy duty excavators to ensure we follow the “as low as reasonably practicable” (ALARP) model to have minimal staff operating within the hazardous area of the demolition zone. Other examples of demolition methods we apply on industrial demolition projects are explosive demolition, high-reach demolition, and induced collapse demolition.
Where are your industrial demolition projects?
Although our head office and plant & equipment yard is located in Newcastle, NSW, the Major Projects Group has the resources and capabilities to provide expertise in industrial demolition, decommissioning and deconstruction across all Australian States and Territories.
