Sector: Ports, Harbours & Piers

Demolition works carried out in the waterside environments such as Piers, Harbours and Ports are fully exposed to any adverse weather conditions should they occur and extra attention has to be given to securing structures being demolished and containing any demolition debris. All arising have to be kept within the demolition site for risk of entering the sea or any other surface water course, eliminating the risk of any pollution of this nature is an absolute priority.

Structural stability can be an issue when demolishing structures over water and often alternative demolition methods have to be explored. The use of lighter mini-excavators can often be contained within the structural loading, otherwise excavators situated on barges can be utilised.
