Soft Strip Demolition
Soft Strip is the process of removing all non-structural elements inside and outside of a building to facilitate demolition, refurbishment or re-modelling works. Soft Strip works can either be undertaken by J W Demolition as a standalone project or as part of a package of overall works for a property. Soft Strip works include but are not limited to the following activities:
- Removal of Fixtures and Fittings
- Removal of Internal Walls
- Removal of Internal Ceilings
- Removal of Temporary Structures
- Removal of M&E
Our soft strip demolition services can be performed either as part of a major building refurbishment programme or prior to demolition of the building. Interior stripping activities include the removal of all floors, temporary floors and ceilings, non-load bearing partitions, mechanical and electrical systems including lighting, cables, cable trays, heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems, and the removal of utilities.
J W Asbestos and Demolition services has a wealth of experience in the stripping out of live hospitals, schools, office blocks, retail, commercial and industrial units. Our highly trained operatives are experienced in carrying out soft-strip demolition where there is requirement for non-structural elements of the building to be removed. These works are always carried out in a safe and responsible manner considering the presence of other trades, adjoining owners and the public, giving you piece of mind that all work will be carried out with thought for all parties involved in the process.
We use soft-strip techniques where we can remove recyclable materials such as timber metal and plastics, prior to the full demolition of site or where a building is undergoing major refurbishment. Soft-stripping allows us to segregate waste materials and as a licensed waste carrier, ensure that we maximise the amount of material that is reused, minimising the volume of soft strip waste going to landfill.
