Interior design trends are constantly changing. A hotel that once appeared modern and luxurious may seem outdated just a decade later. If your commercial building is falling behind the trends, it might be time to remodel it.
But hotels are rarely simple buildings to demolish. They’re made up of many floors, rooms, and unique structures (including pools, cafes, and fitness centers). Given the towering height of most hotels, falling concrete could damage the buildings below.
Demolishing a building of this size requires careful planning and consideration. Here’s what goes into a typical hotel demolition project:
At Bella Contracting, safety always comes first. We don’t get started until we’ve thoroughly assessed the demolition site, taking the time to identify each potential hazard. For example:
- Structural instabilities that may result in a collapse
- Weaknesses in the materials of the building
- Hazardous materials that may cause health issues (asbestos, lead paint, or chemicals)
Once these hazards are identified, the demolition crew can plan how they’ll minimize the danger that they pose to nearby buildings, the ground below, and the contractors themselves.
It’s unacceptable to start demolishing a building without considering the safety hazards involved. Once our contractors have assessed the structural soundness of the building and put together a demolition plan, the next phase of the project can begin.
You might have seen videos of a structural collapse before, in which entire buildings dissolve in a plume of dust. But in reality, demolition is a much more careful, precise, and slow-going process.
It’s important to strike a balance between completing a project efficiently and demolishing a building safely. At Bella Contracting, we always strive to meet our clients’ deadlines while considering the safest and most practical ways to complete the project.
Each demolition project is unique. Depending on the size and structure of your hotel, we’ll use a range of equipment, including skid steers, grapple buckets, and hydraulic hammers.
Why Are Hotel Buildings Demolished?
Many of us have fond memories of hotels. They’re pit stops along the way to our final destination. They’re a place we can call our temporary home while we explore somewhere new.
But when those buildings are no longer safe to inhabit, they must be demolished; it’s the only way to prevent damage to other structures and those nearby. A few hazards that may cause the building to be deemed unsafe include:
- Faulty electrical or plumbing systems
- Rotting materials (floors, ceilings, or walls)
- Fire hazards
- Water damage
If residents are at risk of injury, then a building is unsafe to inhabit. In these cases, the best course of action is to demolish the building and start again from the ground up.
