What Is Involved in a Tampa Bay Commercial Demolition?

at | Category: Commercial Demolition



Tampa Bay commercial demolition jobs are big projects to take on. Clearing a site with an existing structure that is more than three stories high falls under commercial clearing; and unlike residential demolition, it takes several days to actually finish the process.

Manual and mechanical demolition may be applied for commercial or industrial-scale jobs. Power tools such as saws, hammers, and drills are usually utilized for manual demolition while machineries like pulverizers, grapplers, and wrecking balls are to be expected for the latter type. Debris from a site will be taken care of by the contractors and should be moved to a permitted landfill or recycling site.

Tampa Bay demolition contractors are a must not only because of the fact that they know all the processes involved, but also for liability and insurance considerations. If you hire a professional company with the proper liability insurance, they will be the ones responsible for any potential injuries or damages that occur while on the job.

Note that the demolition process is not just the leveling of an existing structure (i.e. house or building). This type of job also entails several other site clearing services. These other services are:

1. Soil tests and drilling
2. Site clearing (clearing vegetation)
3. Removal of construction finishes
4. Structural demolition (actual wrecking of building)
5. Site and vegetation protection
6. Pilings and Caissons (ex: docks, foundations)
7. Project utilities (preparation for incoming utilities like wells and septic tanks)
8. Asbestos abatement

Tampa Bay demolition contractors are also more likely to recognize hazardous materials that they encounter on the job; one of which is asbestos. Asbestos is a type of material which may cause cancer, particularly if the particles are inhaled. It is very important if there is asbestos present that it be properly identified as well as contained as soon as possible.

Like most construction services, commercial demolition projects are paid by the hour. The fee you’ll be paying in total would most likely include labor, debris/waste disposal, machine rental, and miscellaneous tools like blades and drills.

Estimated cost for a 10-day project is around $7,800 for the labor alone. Land clearing, including waste disposal and debris dumping for the same number of days is between $3,100 to $3,500 dollars, depending on the amount of soil and degree to be moved. When an existing building is involved, prices will most likely go up for a commercial demolition job. Machine rental should be around $950 to $1000 and the tools you’ll need for the entire process would probably cost $400 to $500.

Hiring the right Tampa Bay demolition contractors is one way of saving money. They know what they are doing and they are accredited by the state to conduct implosive, explosive, and non-explosive jobs. There are also environmental policies and building guidelines that need to be observed in order to avoid trouble from the city.

Staying Green – Lutz Land Clearing

at | Category: Commercial Demolition

Traditional land clearing practices are becoming practices of the past. Friendlier and more advantageous methods have come along and are rapidly gaining favor. Various factors are responsible for these changes.

Primarily, the dated traditional practices rips and scars the Lutz property, disturbing ground and causing damage to nearby timber. For the land landlord this causes unsightly piles which commands additional money outlay if they decide to dispose of these piles. Due to landfill (tipping) cost skyrocketing and the escalating cost of fuel significantly affects the price.

Secondly burn restrictions, environmental methods and moreover control over damage to the property comes into play. The final yield is considerably more desirable and controlled with these up to date procedures.

When these two methods are analyzed environmentally friendly land clearing has a definition benefit over the outdated traditional methods. Vegetation and small saplings are ground up which deposits all the nutrients behind to restore the landscape. In addition the root system is left intact which assist in the maintaining of erosion. This procedure is so pleasing that it is preferred in multiple projects where the outdated orthodox strategy is banned, such as nearby current water sources. Outdated methods are required to allow a pre-defined buffer between where they clear and the water source. However the mulch land clearing process has no such restraint and can clear right to the border of these water sources.

Taking all these considerations into consideration mulch Lutz land and site clearing has a huge advantage over bulldozing and burning or hauling the waste to the land-fill. With the more modern mulch land clearing approach, burning, hauling to the landfill, elimination of woodland fire fuels and scaring the countryside are all essentially eliminated. All this substantially the price of land clearing.

Landowner notice because on the front end each strategy would seem to cost about the same. Once you explore further into it you discover that there are hidden expenses associated with the old traditional procedure.

In recent years there have been multiple locations that have had forest fires amid periods of drought. Lutz property owners such as Government, land corporations and individuals would benefit greatly from the minimization of fuels such as underbrush. This would weaken the expansion of fire and in some situations utterly relinquish the expansion of fire. The new clearing methods can curtail underbrush fuel to mulch which in turn diminishes the likelihood of fire.

This environmentally advantageous clearing technique is so proficient in these situations that they can go in and surgically wipe out the possibility forest fire fuel. And the land will be remaining with a extremely appealing park like effect.
