MTF Diamond Drilling and Controlled Demolition Traditional Demolition Methods

Robotic Demolition – High Multi Storey Buildings

This type of demolition takes place using Robotic Brokk machines enabling the controlled demolition of multi-storey buildings from the inside.

  • Robotic Brokk machines must be operated by highly trained, skilled and experienced operators.
  • Machines must also be used following manufacturer’s guidelines strictly.
  • Machines need to be inspected daily by competent personnel before use.
  • Working platforms, floor loading need to be checked regularly for stability.
  • Operators need to watch fall zones to ensure debris falls within a safe distance.
  • Debris must also be cleared periodically.

Soft Strip Demolition

Selective demolition (also referred to as strip-out demolition) is the most popular traditional demolition method today. This is the case since the method allows recycling/re-use of material which is very cost effective.

Demolition takes place carefully to ensure all (or almost all) materials are recycled or re-used for future projects.

Selective demolition targets both the interior and exterior elements of buildings. The main aim of this demolition method is to recover and reuse or recycle as much material as possible in the safest and most cost-effective manner. Although selective demolition can be labour intensive and time-consuming MTF uses robotic plant alongside its trained staff to speed up certain tasks which can result significant time savings.
