If you need the non-structural elements of your building removed, as part of refurbishment or for recycling prior to full demolition and clearance, Hastings Demolition will do your job systematically, with precision and care. We specialise in internal “soft strip” activities, including the removal of dangerous substances eg. asbestos. We strip floor coverings, remove temporary floors and ceilings, non-load bearing partitions and mechanical and electrical systems, including lighting, air-conditioning and all cabling. We can also disconnect and remove utilities (water, gas, electricity and telecommunications). We go that extra mile to ensure the building is prepared for the next stage: the renovators or re-fitters will come to a clean space.
Our trained operatives use soft-strip techniques to remove and save materials for recycling. Fireplaces, windows, furniture, staircases, timber all can be carefully removed for reuse. We have a sound recycling ethos at Hastings Demolition, which means we do focus on the treatment of waste removal and we aim to recycle as much material as possible to go back into new building projects. Material the owners don’t keep is recycled through our salvage yard, and native timber, bricks, doors and windows can be restored to grace future buildings. Those parts of a building that owners do want to keep are sympathetically extracted and prepared for shipping from site.
