Demo Salvage's excavators progress breaking in a top-down manner. As demolition progresses, concrete, steel will be cleared with excavators, segregated and relocated to the designated material pile locations. When complete truck loads are generated, the material will be hauled of site for further recycling. The slabs will be cleared of all demolition debris and steel. The concrete floor and foundations will be removed, puliverized and hauled off site for road beds or fill.
Reinforced concrete contains rebar and other metallic reinforcements, which are removed and recycled. The remaining aggregate chunks are sorted by size. Larger chunks may go through the crusher again. Smaller pieces of concrete are used as gravel for new construction projects. Aggregate base gravel is laid down as the lowest layer in a road, with fresh concrete or asphalt placed over it.
Demo Salvage utilizes excavators equipped with special demolition attachments (i.e. concrete munchers, hydraulic shears, breakers and grapples) to demolish and pulverized all existing building concrete buildings, slabs and foundations. The use of DSI’s excavators increases the efficiency of the demolition process, and allows a more controlled operation than conventional crane and ball wrecking procedure. Prior to deconstruction DSI will separate the building and saw cut any concrete as needed.
Demo Salvage recycles all concrete generated from demolition activities. Concrete debris was once routinely shipped to landfills for disposal, we recycling all concrete generated from our demolition projects due both to environmental, and economic benefits.
