Demolition plans are developed to showcase to government agencies and contractors the plan of action to demolish a building or parts of a building.
There are several types of demolition that can take place. Buildings can be demolished in whole or in part, sometimes called a select demolition. Commercial Demolition By Explosion or Implosion is also another way building get taken down. These demolitions usually use explosives. Then there is commercial demolition by machine and commercial demolition by hand.
Depending on the property, some demolition have special rules, such as demolitions that contain asbestos or emergency demolition plans. Demolition Plans must be clear and easily understood by people with varying levels of education. At a minimum, demolition plans should include:
- Site Plan
- Building Structure
- Weakened Structure Statement
- Fences and Gates
- Demolition Safety Zone
- Require Protections
- Demolition Sequence
- Shoring and Bracing
- Debris Removal
- Mechanical Demolition Equipment
- Water Supply
- Other Requirements
Each of these sections is eleabnorated on in the demolition plan. For example. Require protections can include the protecting of adjoinging roofs or sidewalks and additional fencing.
Depending on the County, City or State…the demolition plan can be shorten or lengthen to meet the criteria of agencies involved.
