Hydrodemolition is a method of concrete removal that uses ultra high-pressure water jets to demolish or eliminate unwanted concrete. The hydrodemolition process uses targeted high-pressure jets to cut through and remove unwanted concrete with high precision without damaging any surrounding structures or steel substructures inside the concrete. The hydrodemolition process is a safe and environmentally friendly concrete removal technique of demolishing concrete without sacrificing the steel constructions and other structural parts of the building or equipment. In addition to being incredibly effective and environmentally friendlier than traditional methods of demolition, it also is much quieter than the heavy-duty machinery used in demolition. The hydrodemolition process reduces noise damage caused in the area as well which keeps the neighbours and surrounding environment happy. The water used in hydrodemolition can be filtered to avoid contamination and we are ISO:14001 accredited.
No vibration during the demolition process, no destructive effects on the areas that need to stay intact and unharmed
The affected area can be removed with precision, which traditional methods are unable to meet
Easier access for hard to reach areas
Maintains the structural integrity of reinforcing steel that is supporting the building or the structure that needs the concrete replaced
Reinforcing steel is cleaned during high-pressure water jetting, meaning that no further costs or labour are involved in preparing for the repairs
Permits selective removal of detective concrete, allowing unflawed concrete to remain
Produces a clean surface ideal for bonding with new concrete
Workers can work safely and efficiently, unaffected by the noise or vibrations caused by traditional demolition methods.
