Sustainability and Environment
Today’s environmental concerns mean demolition projects should be managed with the aim of recycling as much of the building material as possible. Southern Demolition is committed to reducing waste by recycling and, re-purposing materials wherever possible.
Southern Demolition has a commitment to preserving the environment and has invested in significant amounts of equipment that is designed to reduce the amount of waste that reaches the landfill. Our careful recycling makes many varieties of rare native and exotic timber available for the ever-expanding restoration market.
- Soft Strip Demolition
Removes linings and fixings to leave a concrete shell. Materials can be sorted easier and carefully removed for re-purposing. Items can be saved for heritage.
- Concrete Crusher
We can crush concrete materials onsite, and this can be used for future building projects by the client, or others.
- Polystyrene and Scrap Metal Recycling
We can organise, sort, and recycle steel, and polystyrene.
- Hazardous Waste
Handled with extreme care by professional Asbestos Removalists and disposed of as per NZ Legislation.
- Native Timbers
These are removed with care and brought back to our salvage yard for on sale.
By soft stripping, crushing concrete, shredding steel, and sorting the waste materials onsite, we can ensure bulk loads are not being contaminated with other materials, our trucks can hold more steel and concrete, assisting to reduce emissions.
