Explosive Demolition

Controlled Explosive Demolition

Structures demolished by explosives ranging from single chimneystacks, steel processing plants and multiples of high rise blocks of flats.


Hawkes Demolition Ltd has extensive experience in the use of controlled explosives for the demolition of Industrial, Commercial and Residential Structures, ranging from reinforced concrete to heavy structural steelwork.


The planning and physical preparation of the structure to be ‘blown down’ will take many weeks as extreme care must be taken in all aspects. However, once fired, even the largest of structures can be demolished in seconds.


To achieve a satisfactory and safe end result to the explosive demolition of a structure the following procedures will be developed at the very start of the project
