Technology in demolition has come a long way from the days of cutting a hole in the base of an industrial chimney, filling it with wood or combustible material, setting fire to it and then watching the chimney come down. One such technological advance is the use of drones. We ourselves possess a drone and have in the past used it for surveying sites as part of the tender process, along with also reviewing the progress of a project, and providing images for marketing purposes. We have also taken advantage of a recent innovation in technology in demolition by initiating the use of the SiteZone Proximity Warning System. There has been the introduction of remote robotic apparatus to carry out surveys, inspection and demolition related works. Finally, technology has advanced in the tools and equipment and protective wear used in demolition.
It is fair to say that Controlled Demolition’s team members face a significant degree of risk every day and on every project. We understand and follow the text-book approach to managing safety: to recognize, assess, and to control risks. Of course, we also understand the need to follow a project schedule, and to stay on budget at the same time. The difficulty facing all of us who work in the construction and demolition sector is how to manage situations when the interests of schedules, budgets and safety start to diverge, as they often do. The problems we routinely face are complex, and can rarely be resolved by a one-size-fits-all solution. Controlled Demolition Group understands and has adopted best-practice safety program elements such as regular project hazard assessments, employee training, PPE, incident investigations, and policies and procedures. What we also do well - in our humble opinion - is practical safety problem solving; a skill gained from over 25 years of experience in the demolition and construction sectors. Whenever possible we involve all affected workers, from the ground up, in the safety conversation. While we recognize the importance of top-down safety leadership, we also realize how often bottom-up contributions can result in a safer and more practical solution to many safety problems.
Controlled demolition is made up of members of our diverse community of men, and women, from all walks of life. We believe that diversity in our company is what brings us together and with a strong team, no challenge is too great. We cultivate and encourage our team to grow and accel, both individually and as team members. Thru this environment we bring a unique and positive collaborative spirit to the projects and clients we work with throughout the industry. At Controlled Demolition we firmly believe in the strength of community, and that is what leads us to become involved in our community’s events thru mentorship, sponsorship, and support programs. Our community has provided our team with a host of benefits and we intend to show our gratitude in return.
