After hundreds of successful demolition projects, we’ve refined our process down to a science.

Step 1: Our team will meet with the project stakeholders (building owners, management) to consult on the demolition, gather the scope, and finalize any important details.
Step 2: A third party environmental consultant will survey the site for asbestos, lead, and other hazards.
Step 3: Once we receive the go ahead, our team will set up containment, and then remove all hazards, ensuring that we follow WorkSafeBC guidelines at all times.
Step 4: A third party environmental testing company will check air purity and cleanliness.
Step 5: Once we obtain approval from the environmental testing company, Clearview will begin sorting materials and removing salvage.
Step 6: Drywall and insulation is removed and recycled. Any copper, aluminum, or other metals are sold for scrap.
Step 7: Roofing materials are removed and recycled.
Step 8: We bring in our excavators, which are used to demolish the structure, and sort large metal installations (boilers etc.) for salvage.
Step 9: The grinder is either brought on-site, or material is hauled to the grinder (whatever is more cost-effective). Wood debris is fed into the grinder, which automatically sorts any remaining metal for scrap.
Step 10: The foundation is removed and crushed.
Step 11: The foundation hole is filled or fenced off, depending on future usage.
Step 12: A signed letter of completion is sent to stakeholders.
