Demolition is the tearing-down of buildings and other structures. Demolition contrasts with deconstruction, which involves taking a building apart while carefully preserving valuable elements for re-use.

For small buildings, such as houses, that are only two or three stories high, demolition is a rather simple process. The building is pulled down either manually or mechanically using large hydraulic equipment

Construction Site Preparation

Rough Staking the Home
Here is where to start laying out the home. The reasons for doing this are twofold: economics and aesthetics. It costs money (usually hourly) to clear the construction site. If you know in advance what needs to be done, you can save some time and money.

Also, you probably don't want to remove any more trees than necessary. Knowing where the home will be built will allow you to save the trees that don't really need to come down.

If there if to be any grading or excavation at the actual building site before the footings are dug, you may want to get the house rough-staked to determine its approximate location. This will help in determining which trees are to be removed.



If your home will have a basement, it'll need to be dug excavated. Again, the potential problem of excess dirt must be addressed.

Perhaps you have areas on your property that can be "filled." Plan ahead so that you are not faced with expensive hauling charges to get rid of it.



Stormwater infrastructure is essential for quality of life, Stormwater is the water draining off a site from the rain that falls on the roof and land, and everything it carries with it. The soil, organic matter, litter, fertilisers from gardens and oil residues from driveways it carries can pollute downstream waterways.

Poorly managed stormwater can cause problems on and off site through erosion and the transportation of nutrients, chemical pollutants, litter and sediments to waterways
