Key site demolition services

Starting a demolition begins with finding the right contractor for the job, who understands the particular ins and outs required for a demolition in your industry. An experienced team will take care of the process from beginning to end, starting with getting the demolition plan approved and ending with a careful clear-up post.

Vital services provided by commercial and mine-site demolition experts include getting all the required safety permits (including for traffic management), detailed site preparation with fencing, hiring necessary security, asbestos checks, tree protection, and careful waste disposal with maximum scrap metal recycling.

Managing a mine site demolition

Decommissioning a mine site is a unique field of demolition, requiring specific knowledge around how to safely carry out each process while closely adhering to essential industry safety standards. Without the right team, mine closures can become tedious, protracted events, where time and money is wasted due to mistakes and ignorance.

Experts in mine site demolition at C.D.Dodd have a proven track record across WA for comprehensive decommissioning projects. Having worked with some of the countries leading mine corporations, we’ve shown each demolition is carried out to exacting standards with detailed scoping beforehand, and careful recycling of a vast amount of materials post-job.

Safe scrap metal recycling

One of the core elements of a successful demolition is ensuring the maximum amount of unused materials are recycled and reused, wherever possible. As well as preventing waste going to a dump, causing harm to our environment, scrap metal recycling enables the company to make money in an otherwise costly process.

C.D.Dodd guarantees complete compliance with all environmental regulations when carrying out demolition in contaminated areas such as mine sites, with particular expertise around the secure recycling of all possible metals and materials.

This detailed approach to mine site decommissioning often enables new Greenfield projects to be carried out on the land, in line with Department of Environmental Regulations guidelines.
