What You Should Do Prior To A Demolition Project
Whatever type of demolition service you need, each structure that is being considered for the demolition project must be surveyed on the condition of its walls, floors and framing. This is for the purpose of assessing the possibility of an unseen and unplanned collapse of any part of the structure. A written engineering survey result should be produced at the end.
In addition to the survey, there are a number of things that has to be accomplished as well. First, you need to brace or shore the floors and walls of structures that have been damaged and pose a threat to employees when they enter. Make sure that all stairways are properly illuminated. Inspect and maintain all ladders, passageways and stairs.
Determine and take note of the types of hazardous chemicals, explosives, gases and flammable items that have been used in any tanks, pipes or other equipment found inside the property. Conduct a survey for asbestos and other dangerous items.
Post warning signs at every level of structures to warn about the danger of falling materials. In multi-story structures, protect the entrances by placing sidewalk sheds or canopies that stand at a minimum of 8 feet. Make sure that the canopy is at least 2 feet wider than the entrance of the structure and that it can hold a load as heavy as 150 pounds.
