Hydrodemolition

Precisely controlled, staged removal of concrete sections in any structure

Introducing Hydrodemolition

Hydrodemolition is a process that removes concrete from the surface of a structure by using high pressure water. This process is much more environmentally friendly than traditional demolition techniques.

Hydrodemolition is a relatively new technology in the field of construction and demolition. It was first developed in the late 1960s and has since been used to remove concrete from many different structures. Hydrodemolition is an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional demolition techniques because it produces less dust and noise, while also being able to remove concrete without any chemicals or explosives.

Key features of Hydrodemolition

PRECISE CONTROL

Full demolition of structure or only the required surface is removed

REDUCED RISK

Power is concentrated at the cutting head reducing risk to nearby, plant and personnel

NO EXPLOSIVES

No percussive or explosive forces lowers noise  levels

EXPERT OPERATORS

Experienced operators can hand lance in awkward/confined spaces 

ONLY WATER

Water suppresses the spread of dust and debris, Waste water can be collected

REMOTE CONTROL

In high risk environments operators can operate equipment remotely, away from the work face

Precisely controlled concrete removal

Unlike explosive impact techniques, hydrodemolition may be precisely controlled for careful staged removal of concrete sections in any structure.

Our method makes for precisely controlled, staged removal of concrete sections in any structure with no risk of damage to adjacent structures, plant, property or personnel as all power is concentrated at the cutting head of the hydrodemolition unit.

Hydrodemolition is low noise vs. the use of explosives and the use of water suppresses the spread of debris at the demolition site.

Remote controlled robotic systems can be used in high risk environments and where greater finesse is required (awkward or confined spaces) our experienced operatives are able to hand lance to achieve the desired results.

Hydrodemolition Applications

Repairs

Removal of failed material enhances durability of repairs

02

Access

Gain access to what was previously unreachable

03

Decommissioning

Complete or partial deconstuction of structures
