Demolition Services

We supervise or regulate the majority of demolition projects in Birmingham. Our surveyors inspect the sites to ensure buildings are demolished safely and in accordance with the standards laid out in Sections 80, 81, and 82 of the Building Act 1984. If you need to carry out any demolition work you will be required to inform us. We will then inspect the property and issue you with a schedule of conditions. When the work starts our surveyors will inspect the property to ensure the conditions are being met. If you need any more help and advice please contact us.

Surveying Services also carries out Contract Administration roles on demolition contracts for a wide variety of clients, both in house Council Departments and external public bodies such as Housing Action Trusts.

Surveying Services supervise demolition utilising a variety of techniques, broadly classified into traditional (mechanical) methods and the controlled use of explosives to blow down the building.
