Environmental management planning is an integral part of our overall project approach, embedding environmental considerations into every aspect of our operations and activities.
Our commitment to the protection and preservation of the environment is best demonstrated by our certifications. Our internal Health, Safety and Environmental Management Plan addresses how we will manage environmental impacts such as:
• Construction noise
• Vibration and dilapidation
• Air quality
• Soil and groundwater quality and conservation
• Water quality
• Protection of flora and fauna
• Hazardous waste and other dangerous materials
Controlled Demolition understands its obligations to avoid waste generation and enable the recycling and reuse of waste generated by our operations and activities. We have adopted a 0% waste target for our company operations and we are continuously refining our methods of waste processing to achieve this goal.
A project specific tracking system is used to track all material removed from site as part of the demolition process. It identifies the destination of the waste and detail what processing procedures the waste will be subject to. The system then details the form and quantities that the waste will be recycled into and identifies the end users of the recycled product on a monthly basis.
The demolished materials are then sorted on-site into four main categories; salvage items, mixed waste, ferrous metal and non- ferrous metals, and concrete and masonry.
The next step is to transport the materials from site to processing into reusable products, diverting materials from land fill. Then carry out the processing of mixed waste, concrete and masonry materials.
