Sydney is an ever-growing urban hub in Australia. It’s no surprise then that Sydney shop demolitions or defits occur as often as they do. As businesses evolve, so do their needs and as a result, a demolition or defit is often required.
This can be for any number of reasons: perhaps the building has become unstable or unsafe and it is not financially viable to fix or perhaps the landlord or tenant just needs more space. Demolitions and office defits can be partial or full to meet these needs. The biggest challenge in cases like this is not the demolition or shop defit, it is finding the right person to do it.
Many businesses in Brisbane and Sydney have horror stories about working with unskilled demolition workers. In cases like this, it’s not uncommon for a construction company to simply disappear after the job is done inadequately, leaving the client to pick up the pieces.
YouTube is awash with videos of demolitions gone wrong. While most of these aren’t Sydney or Brisbane shop demolitions there’s no need for your shop to be the first! All office and shop demolitions have to be carried out in accordance with Australian Standard AS2601: The Demolition of Structures. The purpose of these procedures is to minimise injuries, cut back on environmental impact and ensure there is no damage to surrounding buildings.
Shop defits undertaken in Brisbane or Sydney generate plenty of environmental waste too, and this often heads straight for the landfill. Costs associated with landfills are what make many unprofessional defitters abandon waste at the site, again leaving the client to clean up the mess.
Two ways of avoiding these problems are:
– to ensure that your chosen contractor has experience in commercial strip-outs
– to be certain that your chosen contractor is able to provide any specialised equipment needed to complete the job professionally
