      Our dismantling and demolition process

      Synergy Lifting are proud to provide a carefully thought out and thoroughly planned dismantling and demolition service. We understand that every dismantling and demolition project is different. Some dismantling and demolition projects can be completed in a day whilst some can take place over a series of months. No matter the size of the project, there are always several components that comprise the foundation of our process – these include our site visits and assessments, preparation of quotes and RAMS, confirmation of values for insurance purposes, and the execution and management of our project operations. Below is a typical outline of a basic dismantling and demolition project from start to finish.


      Site Visit

      The first step is for Synergy Lifting's dismantling and demolition team to conduct a site audit to produce documentation for the following steps.



      Following our initial site visit, our team will produce a detailed quotation with an outline of our scope of works and timescales.


      Site Assessment

      Our team will undertake our full site assessment to establish HSE requirements and finalise our method for lifting operations, dismantling etc.


      Risk Assessment

      With safety being our priority in all of our operations, a site-specific risk assessment will be created to go alongside our method statement.


      Method Statement

      Our team will write up a site-specific method statement detailing our safe working procedures to carry out our operations.


      Highways and Councils

      Synergy Lifting will work with local councils to arrange any necessary permits or road closures if heavy/wide loads need transporting off site.


      Insurance Covers

      Synergy Lifting's full comprehensive insurance covers will be presented to the client for review before site operations commence.

      The dismantling work will be undertaken by Synergy Lifting’s qualified personnel utilising our specialist plant and equipment.

      Dismantling and Demolition Safety

      At Synergy Lifting, we always treat safety as the number one priority and this is especially important for our dismantling and demolition projects. All of our dismantling and demolition projects are carried out under CDM regulations with a strict attention to detail. As with our other works, the initial step is for our team to devise a through method statement and risk assessment (RAMS) with a detailed outline of how the works will be carried out and a thorough investigation into potential risks. Our dismantling and demolition team do not cut corners and we will often opt to use non-destructive dismantling techniques in order to maintain structural integrity during our operations.
