When bridges age and deteriorate, they need to be removed or replaced to ensure the safety of the people who make use of the bridges. There can be numerous reasons for removing a bridge. It may not be safe for use, or it may no longer fit with the existing structures. However, bridge demolition takes a lot of planning and precise execution. A demolition project needs to be carried out in the safest manner possible and must comply with the guidelines and legislation of the region.


Econ specialises in offering cutting edge bridge demolition services that are efficient and cost-effective. Our comprehensive services and stringent standards ensure that every client has a 5-star experience.


Safety and Experience

Our teams undergo regular training sessions and stay up-to-date with the best techniques to use and legislation to keep in mind while carrying out a bridge demolition. Each site is supervised by an experienced project manager who makes sure that the project goes according to plan. Only highly trained operators are allowed to manage the heavy machinery that is used for such projects. We give utmost importance to the safety of our teams and the surrounding environment.


Comprehensive Management

While effectively rendering bridge demolition services, it is also important to consider the disruption caused to others in the area. Before we begin the demolition, we deliver all the necessary equipment and material to the site and keep it ready for the project. This helps ensure that the demolition can be completed in the shortest possible time, without any delays. We work round the clock to ensure minimal disruption to traffic and local residents.


Waste Disposal

Once the demolition has been completed, we manage the disposal of all the parts, debris and pollutants. A team of waste removal and recycling operatives stand by the site to process the removal of all waste material. The large quantities of waste are carefully transported to the material recycling facilities and waste management stations where they are processed in an environmentally friendly manner. These facilities are pre-selected and vetted to ensure that the waste is removed from the site in the shortest period of time possible.


At Econ, we have years of experience in offering bridge demolition services. From planning to execution and site clearance, we handle every aspect of the process. Our expert professionals cater to the requirements of each site in a highly specialised manner in order to ensure quality services. We conduct safe removal of the structure and prepare the site for future use or development projects.
