Removal of high-rise DSM Delft
In 2021, DDM Demontage started the remediation, dismantling and removal of the Alexander Fleming house 530 on the DSM Delft B.V. site.
The scaffold provides access to the outside of the facade containing asbestos. It also provides protection from the elements such as wind and rain. It also protects the surroundings from any dust released during demolition.
How does the demolition of the high-rise work? Demolishing the high-rise is not a cold job. It requires a team with a great deal of expertise to get the job done. A tower crane is set up to remove the high-rise. Storey by storey, the construction floors are cleared using the tower crane. The hoisted concrete slabs of the various floors are demolished at ground level with the demolition excavator. Eventually, the concrete core will remain. The concrete core is demolished mechanically using a long-arm demolition excavator. All the materials removed will be recycled into new building materials.
The structural steel is professionally dismantled and transported to a steel supplier, so that the released structural steel is reused in a circular manner.
We look forward to the successful demolition of the high-rise!
