How long will it take to demolish my house?

We usually advise clients to allow at least one full week for the demolition of their house.

How much notice do I need to provide to schedule in my demolition job?

Generally we require at least three weeks’ notice of the proposed demolition start date (however if greater notice is possible, that is preferable).

What do I need to do before organising demolition?

It is the responsibility of the property owner to ensure that the gas has been cut off and the electricity has been disconnected by SA Power Networks prior to the commencement of the demolition. The water connection is to remain connected as the operator will disconnect the water meter and use the water for dust and debris control during demolition.

It is also important to ensure that you have approval from the local council for demolition prior to the start date.

All items that are to be kept by the owner must be removed from the property before the demolition start date and you should notify us of any items or trees that are to remain.

It is also wise to inform neighbouring property owners of the impending demolition and potential increase in noise, traffic and dust.

Can you do my council/development application for me?

Generally it is more convenient for clients to fill out and lodge their council/development application, however in certain circumstances we can assist with this. Some councils also require you to provide details of the proposed demolition procedure, and we can also assist with providing such information if required.
