Hello and welcome to our March newsletter. This issue includes super helpful advice if you are planning a demolition, as well as a sneak peek at one of our recent projects and the answer to a question that we get asked a lot! 

Enjoy and have a lovely day! 

Demolishing your home can be a stressful time, but by using these helpful tips, you can ensure that you're prepared and that 'D day' will go as smoothly as possible.

Move your contents to storage

Before any demolition work begins, big or small, it’s time to get your valuables out of there. Arrange storage in an off-site facility and rest assured that no matter what happens, your contents will be safe.

Check your insurance

While ensuring that any contractor you use has adequate insurance, it’s also important to check your own home insurance policy. By law you are required to disclose changes of circumstances that could affect your insurance, so it is worthwhile calling up your insurer and informing them of your intention to carry out a demolition.

Better to be safe than be in a position where your public liability cover is voided in the event of an injury, or where a burst water pipe causes significant damage to neighbouring properties, leaving you with legal liability exposure.

Arrange alternative accommodation

Before demolition begins, ensure you have arranged suitable alternative accommodation. You may have another property to reside in, or you may wish to share, rent, or board with family or friends. Whatever you decide, make sure it’s all planned out well in advance of demo day.

As usual, it has been a busy couple of weeks for the team here at DIG IT, but we love what we do. Our most recent project was at Nickson Street, Surry Hills, where we excavated a sizeable area to make room for a large basement under an existing property. This involved bulk excavation in sandy soils which was supported by contiguous piled shoring wall. The detailed excavation was in the rock which required rock sawing and hammering with our 1.7 – 3.5t excavators. The project took around 2 weeks to complete.
How much will my project cost?
The cost of your project will depend on a number of factors, including location and access to the site, the size, type of material to be demolished, can the material be recycled or need to be disposed of as landfill, excavation in soft sand or hard rock and other factors like traffic and security. Once we talk to you about the project and complete a free site inspection, we will provide a quote for a project budget, lump sum contract or Do and Charge rates, depending on your needs.Get in touch for more information.
