Brokk Robotic Demolition & Concrete Bursting in Plymouth, Devon
Plymouth is an intrinsic part of British maritime history. The Royal Navy has operated out of Plymouth Sound for centuries and almost every historic voyage of discovery that left England’s shores left from Plymouth. Along with its maritime heritage, Plymouth has many naval and military buildings which were extremely well built, as well as wharves and docks, which are incredibly solid structures. When these need to be altered or demolished, it takes people with specialist knowledge and equipment to get the job done.
24-7 Diamond Drilling & Sawing Services has one of the most experienced and well equipped demolition teams in the United Kingdom. Our equipment of choice is the Brokk range of demolition machines. These units are powered by electric motors which are quiet and don’t give off exhaust fumes. Their versatility is almost unlimited. Being tracked vehicles, they are able to climb stairs and access really tight situations. The operator controls the unit from a remote panel which keeps him away from the work area and out of danger. The attachments available enable these machines to drill, cut, crush and jackhammer the structures they are demolishing.
For large demolition jobs such as dams, piers, bridge supports and large foundations, we use concrete bursting equipment. This equipment can crack and demolish a structure as much as five metres thick.
