Abstract
In the construction world, the number of structures with various aspects and purposes as their requirements & demands of the infrastructure of the city or town are constructed and demolished. As the time passed, the life cycle of builded structure is going to over as per design, or illegally constructed. We know that every structure is designed for a specific life period, generally 100 years. The existence of the structure after the service life period is very dangerous to its occupants and surrounding buildings. The hazards during demolition are falls, being struck or buried in falling material or by the unintentional collapse of the structure, noise, vibration, and dust. In addition, workers may be exposed to hazardous chemical and biological agents. Therefore, it becomes essential to demolish the building. Demolition is the tearing-down of buildings which involves taking a building apart while preserving the valuable elements for re-use. There are various methods of demolition. The building is brought down either manually or mechanically depending upon the method used for demolition of buildings. Equipment’s used for demolition work are hammers, rammers, excavators, bulldozers, wrecking ball and the explosives used are dynamites and detonators etc. which is generally preferred for tall buildings. The various steps involved before the demolition process includes surveying of the demolition site, removal of hazardous material and safety precautionary measures. The study also includes the precautionary measures regarding machinery or equipment’s, scaffolding, public safety and worker safety.
