IS DEMOLITION A REGULATED INDUSTRY?
Demolition contractors are some of the most regulated construction industry professionals. As they are working on structures that are often damaged by fire, weather, or structural deficiency, most demolition projects require permit review by local municipal building departments. As demolition contractors handle hazardous materials and toxic substances there are a host of municipal, state and federal environmental regulations that govern the industry’s operations. As demolition is a dynamic craft and contractors are dealing with a variety of structures, the industry’s health and safety regulations are very strong. Many states have their own health & safety rules and the Federal Government’s Occupational Safety & Health Administration’s (OSHA) Construction Standard (29 CFR 1926) contains a specific section on demolition operations
Interior demolition is the non-structural demolition of spaces within a structure usually in preparation for reuse and upgrading of the space. This work includes interior wall and ceiling removal, demolition of flooring and some utility services, salvage, and selective structural demolition.
Demolition Costs vary from city, state and region. There are many different factors that go into pricing a demolition project. Estimating a demolition project can be much more challenging than estimating a typical construction project due to the fact THAT there ARE no set prices for each item to be demolished. Factors that can have a significant effect on the price of a demolition project may include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Requirements/ Restriction in your area
- Project Location/ Accessibility to Structure
- Project Size
- Scope of Work
- Type of Material (Wood, Concrete, etc.)
- Hauling/ Disposal Fees
- Salvage Material Value
- Hazardous Materials
A few examples of basic demolition projects:
- Demolition of a 750 square foot (25×30) 2 car detached garage could cost from $2.00-$5.00 per square foot making the price range from $1,500-$3,750.
- Demolition of a 1500 square foot residential house could cost from $2.00-$6.00 per sq. ft. making the price range from $3,000-$9,000.
- Demolition of a 10,000 sq. ft. warehouse or office building could cost from $4.00-$8.00 per sq. ft. making the price range from $40,000-$80,000. Interior Demolition of the same 10,000 sq. ft. warehouse could cost from $2.00-$6.00 per sq. ft. making the price range from $20,000-$60,000.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DEMOLITION AND DECONSTRUCTION?
As the recycling rates from both conventional demolition and what is called deconstruction are generally about the same, often close to 90% of the material on a project site, the major difference between the two processes tends to be that deconstruction is usually much more labor-intensive than conventional demolition where a considerable amount equipment and technology is used. Deconstruction involves the hand dismantlement of potential recyclables and therefore in addition to be more labor intensive can be more time consuming than convention structural demolition that utilizes heavy equipment, specialized attachments and recycling equipment. The goal of both demolition and deconstruction is the same, to maximize the amount of marketable recycled material generated on a project site.
