A strip out refers to the partial or total removal of the internal or external components of a building. This can include removal of the cabling, lighting, flooring, plumbing, built-in shelves karma fixtures, internal walls, wall linings, and so on. When necessary, a strip out service can also include a comprehensive removal of hazardous material such as PCB (polychlorinated biphenyl) and asbestos.
In recent years, launching a strip out project has become more popular with more and more clients preferring to develop existing structures against conducting a full rebuild by using the existing outer building. Generally speaking, strip outs would encompass kitchens, bathrooms, commercial buildings, shops, offices and any other projects.
Interior Strip Out
Interior strip out, sometimes known as dismantling or selective demolition, refers to the removal of a few selected parts of a structure or building as opposed to demolishing the structure in full. Usually, a dismantling occurs in buildings or facilities that continue to operate or are still active in their operations. If this is the case, a strip out project must ensure minimum disruption to the structure’s operations as well as ensure its maximum safety.
This type of strip out is best for anyone who intends to maximize the value of existing structure or building since it revolves around repurposing or reusing these buildings. Companies that provide interior strip outs or dismantling services should work closely with customers in order to ensure that the project will run smoothly from the beginning up to the end.
