Removal of high-rise DSM Delft

In 2021, DDM Demontage started remediating, dismantling and removing the Alexander Fleming house 530 on the site of DSM Delft B.V.

The asbestos specialists have started remediating the high-rise buildings. Various applications have been renovated, spread over 10 floors, over 8000 m2. To achieve this, DDM placed the entire building in containment. To achieve this, 250,000 m3 of negative pressure was installed. The containment has recently been released and in the coming weeks the high-rise will be erected in scaffolding and then the exterior renovations and demolition will continue.

The scaffolding provides access to the outside of the facade with asbestos-containing materials. The scaffolding also provides protection against the elements such as wind and rain. In addition, it protects the environment against any dust released from demolition.

How does the demolition of the high-rise building work? Demolishing the high-rise buildings is not an easy job. It requires a team with a lot of expertise to get this job done. A tower crane has been set up to remove the high-rise buildings. Floor by floor, remediation takes place and the construction floors are lifted off using the tower crane. The lifted concrete slabs from the various floors are demolished at ground level with the demolition excavator. Ultimately, the concrete core will remain. The concrete core is demolished mechanically using a demolition excavator with a long arm. All waste materials are recycled into new building materials.

The structural steel is professionally dismantled and transported to a steel supplier, in this way the released structural steel is circularly reused.

We look forward to the successful demolition of the high-rise building with confidence!
