Bird's-Eye View: The Science Behind Construction And Contracting

Hi! I'm AJ and I have an unusual hobby. I love abseiling down buildings - legally, of course. It is a growing tourist activity and I have been lucky enough to try it in many parts of the world. When you are on top of a building and then making your descent, you really have time to admire the overall construction and materials used. It is actually mind-boggling to think about the builders and machines who have put together such amazing architecture. I've been reading quite a few books lately about construction techniques and I'm quite in awe of the science involved. I hope that you find the science behind construction as fascinating as I do. Thank you for your time.

The Three Different Types Of Demolition Contractors

Removing an entire building is not easy work, and finding the right professional to do it for you is essential to make sure the process is as simple and painless as possible. What you might not realise is that there are three different types of demolition contractors, and it matters that you get the right one for your job. They can be quite easily split into the three different categories of buildings: residential, industrial and commercial. If you are considering demolition contractors for your property then here are a few reasons you should get the right contractor for your specific type of building.


Residential demolition contractors are the most common, as many older houses are torn down to be replaced with newer, upgraded versions. You should still make sure to always use a professional service for a couple of reasons, including:

  • Quick and efficient job to make sure you remain in the right timeframe.
  • Minimises the debris sent into your neighbour's yards.
  • Compliant with all health and safety protocols to ensure no one is breaking the law.

Some people mistakenly think they can knock down their home on their own, but that is generally against the law. 


Industrial demolition contractors are a little different in that they often deal with quite hazardous materials. Many warehouses and manufacturing plants have large pieces of equipment with still toxic materials in them, and you need to ensure that these are disposed of responsibly. In addition to that, many industrial demolition experts have to be good at revitalising the area after they finish, by planting trees and grass using hydromulch to ensure it grows on the barren surface. If you want your industrial area to be taken care of quickly, safely and so that it looks great after, then you should always use a third party service that focuses on demolition full time. 


Commercial demolition often has to be quite delicate because the property is wedged between other commercial properties. Unfortunately, commercial demolitions also often have the shortest timeframe because, as everyone knows, time is money, and when it comes to business, the less time spent the better. If you want your commercial property removed safely and with major attention to details like recycling, toxic chemical disposal and so on, then you need to use a quality company that specialises in commercial demolition. Always make sure to have a face-to-face meeting with your potential demolition contractors first, just to get a feel for what it will be like to work with them.
