Deconstruction vs Demolition

Building deconstruction is the preferred property management by many local governments given the considerable reduction of waste after the structure is taken down. It involves a careful and painstaking process of removing and salvaging materials. These are methodically kept intact so they can be repurposed, reused, and recycled.

On the other hand, demolition is the typical tearing down of the structure. Sledgehammer, heavy machinery or even explosives are used to destroy or wreck a building or any part thereof. This leaves massive destruction and almost all of what remains are brought to the landfill.

Cost Efficiency

Materials salvaged from this type of building demolition are what evens out the cost or, to a certain extent, provides savings. The equation behind it is simple. The more materials saved means less disposal cost. The more materials repurposed, reused or recycled, the more you can save on cost to buy a new one or earning money from what was sold.

Most of the materials saved from deconstruction include windows, doors, metals, cabinets and masonry, structural wood, plumbing and lighting fixtures, and tiles. So even if the process is more labor intensive and costly, it is still cost efficient.

Effect on Project Schedule

Given the meticulous nature of building deconstruction, it is expected that doing it will take a little bit longer. Additional time needs to be allotted so it can be done. This might be a challenge to some specifically to those who have a tight project schedule. Nevertheless, property owners and contractors need to understand that deconstruction is more beneficial. It is economically favorable in the long run plus it is also environmentally advantageous.

Meanwhile, the emergence of new technologies has paved way for a more time saving effort. De-nailing guns, for example, makes the work faster.
