Every project is meticulously planned, every detail is covered and costs are kept in check to deliver the best outcome.
- Enabling Works
Early engagement with Cawarden provides certainty to even the most challenging projects. Our Enabling Services include all of the up-front work which needs to be completed to prepare a site ready for demolition.
- Demolition Engineering
We’re demolition engineers – Specialists in conventional ‘floor-by-floor’ or ‘top-down’, high reach, remote-controlled, hydro and hand demolition. We apply the safest demolition methodologies and techniques using the latest plant and equipment to carry out all types of demolition, deconstruction and dismantling. Whether we’re working in a city centre with significant space constraints, residential areas, industrial or infrastructure sites – we manage all of the key processes and procedures required to manage a project, safely and efficiently within the constraints that each of these unique environments present.
- Recycling & Waste Management
Reclaiming, recycling, reusing and disposing of waste from our demolition projects is all part of the service. We aim to divert at least 95% of waste from landfill. We can also provide a complete in-situ recycling solution to minimise environmental impact and recycle demolition arisings back into future developments. Learn more here.
Our capability continues to grow to meet the needs of our clients. So, for clients who require more than ‘just’ demolition expertise, we can efficiently synchronise our services to also offer Land Remediation & Earthworks, Civils & Groundworks, Asset Recovery and Recycling & Environmental Solutions – all as part of our ‘destruction to construction’ service.
