Robotic demolition is a service that we also offer, in conjunction with our parent company, Hawes Building.
Hawes use Brokk machines to carry out robotic demolition and building work. We use this method when it is hazardous for operatives to be in the vicinity. Because they are electrically powered, our robotic demolition machines are ideal for working in confined sites or where your staff or the public are close-by, especially where diesel engines are no longer allowed due to fumes and noise levels.
Brokk’s are extremely powerful machines that can replace 360 diesel operated machines. Concrete crushing is a method used when we need to minimise the exposure to hand arm vibration (HAVS) and also to reduce noise and dust.
In the capable hands of Hawes’ trained team, our robotic demolition equipment can be driven using remote control, enabling precision manoeuvres to be undertaken from a safe distance, away from potential hazards.
Case study – HSBC
Back in March 2017 we were approached by our client to price the removal of a walk-in concrete safe in a recently vacated HSBC branch, which had to be returned to its original footprint prior to the bank’s use.
The safe consisted of 300mm thick heavily reinforced concrete walls and roof slab. The safe measured 3400mm wide by 3000m deep and 2700mm high overall. The reinforcement ran vertically and then had spiral/helical bars wrapped around each vertical bar.
