DEMOLITION

Do you have a run down building on your property that needs to be removed? How about an old pool that doesn’t have place in your yard anymore?

At Gillis Construction, our commitment to safety is the most important aspect of the demolition process. This means safety for not only you, your family, your employees, but also for the property itself. Many times demolitions are necessary in dense areas and thus you want to hire an expert service provider to ensure no damage to the surrounding environment.

OUR
DEMOLITION SERVICES

We have the skills, expertise and experience to deal with a wide variety of demolition projects. Long gone are the days of wildly swinging wrecking balls. Instead, utilizing advanced equipment such as excavators we practice a precision demolition process. This is not only safer and cleaner but also reduces debris and congestion on the worksite.

Selective Demolition


Selective demolition may be removing a certain interior or exterior section to make way for a renovation or remodel. It may entail stripping away an entryway or removing part of the home’s interior components. For this type of demolition, it’s especially essential to be precise, effective and efficient.

Interior Demolition


This is the process or removing walls, gutting out entire rooms or any other interior space. Common examples of interior demolition are commercial spaces making way for new tenants, or even homeowners looking to remodel their entire interior. This type of demolition also requires enhanced attention to noise, dust, odor and vibrations.

Exterior Demolition


Exterior demolition is perhaps the simplest type, which may entail removing an entire building, garage, barn, foundation, mobile home, pool or more. Typically, you will have the most amounts of materials to be recycled with an exterior demolition and thus recycling is a key element.

SUSTAINABLE DEMOLITION


We aim to minimize our environmental impact. The construction industry today accounts for a large percentage of resource use – including materials, transportation and energy usage required in the building process. By recycling materials after demolition, this can not only reduce economic costs, but also the need to produce new materials and the amount of waste that ends up in landfills. Ideally, we would like to reuse these materials onsite.

Repurposing building materials, for example, is the act of removing segments piece by piece and salvaging those that can be reused, recycled or sold for a following construction project. i.e. flooring, wood, shingles, tiles, pipes, HVAC units, bricks, etc. Crushing and recycling concrete is another sustainable building practice. It can then be used as an aggregate in other materials such as roads, site fills, structural layer and more.
