What is Interior Demolition?
There are various terms used in building renovation that refer to ways in which the structure is “made ready” for the rebuild. These terms are:
Interior Demolition can be defined as performing the taking apart of the interior of a structure in a safe manner while preserving the exterior portion and other areas not scheduled for demolition. This could include demolition of walls, partitions, finishes, equipment, pipes, fittings, etc. as would be required for an interior renovation project.
Select demolition involves the removal of components, portions of structures, or interior finishes while protecting the remaining structure.
Deconstruction involves taking a building apart while carefully preserving valuable elements of the building components for re-use. Or, the selective dismantlement of building components, specifically for re-use, recycling, or waste management. All of the above referenced demolition or deconstruction techniques may require asbestos abatement and / or lead-based paint abatement prior to demolition or deconstruction.
