Maximizing Your Demolition Project - Tips to Define Scope|Budget

Define Demolition Scope and Budget

Often on large construction and renovation projects, the demolition portion of the Scope of Work is vague or poorly defined. It’s not uncommon to see a boxed-out area on drawings with only a few details or general notes. These demolition unknowns often result in unforeseen extras, delays, and budget overruns. Here are some ways to improve your scope of work. 

* Depending on the project size, you may want to engage an experienced demolition contractor for assistance with preconstruction. This is often the best return on investment.

* Ensure that structural elements, utilities, plumbing, mechanical equipment, etc., that must remain for reuse are specified in the scope to avoid bearing the cost of putting them back. 

* Identify any assets that can be recovered for resale to offset project costs. 

* Make sure all hazardous materials have been identified early on before the project begins. The discovery of unexpected hazards can be a showstopper. 

* Demolition contractors should be vetted to ensure they can roll with the punches and adapt to unexpected problems efficiently. 

* Determine the most cost-effective and efficient demolition schedule for the specific project. This could mean five 8-hour days, four 10-hour days, overnight shifts, etc. 

* If the building or nearby areas are occupied, you may need to account for dust, noise, and vibration in your project schedule.

* Environmental controls like temporary airlocks, sticky mats, exhaust fans, etc., may be required if demolition is to take place in a sensitive facility such as healthcare or clean manufacturing.
