    Frequently Asked Questions

    In addition to the demolition itself, we have teams available to handle the management of waste (including crushing and screening), the strip out of buildings, full site management, plant hire, reclamation, and alterations to existing buildings and structures.

    If a structure needs to be demolished, DDS can do it in one, or a combination, of the following ways:

    Groundwork are the activities that prepare the ground surface in a way that ensures a strong and stable structure on top. In all phases of the design and build, groundwork is an essential consideration. These activities can include drainage, foundation construction, and land remediation. We offer groundwork services in London that cover all of this off.

    Asbestos removal involves the controlled and responsible removal of all asbestos fibres from older buildings to ensure that nothing remains of it - this includes the asbestos that can sometimes be found in the soil.

    It’s essential to test your site for asbestos before any other works are carried out, and this should be done by a professional. DDS offer asbestos testing in London as well as asbestos removal.
