Could our concrete crushing services help to reduce your demolition bill?



What’s great about having a building demolished and crushed to the site using a jaw-crusher, is that it’s helping to protect the environment and reduce the overall demolition bill.

What we mean by this is most demolition contractors, us included, will reduce the cost for us to demolish a building if we can crush it to the site. We can use a powerful jaw crusher, to crush all of the aggregates, brick, concrete and stone at the site.

How does concrete crushing help to reduce the overall demolition bill?

When you think of the amount of haulage, that is required on most demolition contracts, a 8- wheeler tipper is often needed haul concrete away from the demolition site, this can sometimes significantly increase the bill.

For example, having lorries, with the cost of the drivers and diesel, this can significantly increase the cost of the demolition contract.
So, for example, the vast majority of the demolition contracts we manage are within Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan areas are now crushed to site, using a jaw crusher.

Now, when you think a typical house might need about ten loads of hard-core taken away, this can significantly increase the bill for us to demolish the building.


Jaw crusher

Yet if the building is going to be crushed to the site, with a powerful jaw crusher then, this can crush the building and make the stone into hardcore, which can then be reused to make say the foundations for the new building.


Left onsite or taken away

Sometimes, the client will want all the hardcore to taken away via a eight wheeler lorry, such as using DAF – eight wheeler lorry. Sometimes a aggregate is sold to another company which will use it for, let’s say, the base to make a new road, such as a motorway.

Alternatively, sometimes, the client will want the hard-core themselves; they can level it over the site and use it as part of the foundations for the new building.


Helps to protect the environment

Crushing the building and reusing that aggregate on the site, rather than transporting it away via trucks, helps protect the environment because less haulage is required. This means less diesel is burned and, therefore, less carbon is created during the demolition process.

Crushing the concrete slab

Often, we use what is called a hydraulic hammer, which is fitted to the end of an excavator; this is used to break the concrete slab into much smaller pieces; once this process has been undertaken, it’s time to feed the jaw crusher.

One part of the jaw crusher is called a hopper; this is where the concrete, the stone, and the aggregate are fed into this part of the machine.

What comes out the other end is hard-core.
