Pre demolition audits

Pre-demolition audits identify opportunities for reclamation, reuse and recycling from a demolition process.  The end report will provide you with graphical display on waste arisings that can be expected from the process, along with a list of recommendations that can be followed to reduce your waste disposal costs.

Pre-demolition Audits

Pre-demolition audits are recommended by The Institute of Civil Engineers (The ICE Demolition Protocol) and can be requested for planning requirements. They are designed to highlight the potential for maximum material recovery through demolition and provide a bill of quantities of tonnages that will arise. A report will be produced detailing materials airisngs as well as a list of suggested actions to be undertaken so that maximum material recovery is achieved.

The report includes information on the following: 

  • The potential for maximum material recovery through demolition
  • A Demolition Bill of Quantities, which identifies tonnages and potential applications of materials arising from demolition.
  • A set of recommendations to material segregation, considering the potential impact of contamination and cost benefits for recovery and reclamation. 

A report is submitted detailing the above information, providing clear graphical display on materials arisings as well as a list of suggested actions to be undertaken to ensure maximum material recovery is achieved.
