Not to be confused with demolition, dismantling is a reversal of the construction process that first erected a building structure. Dismantling allows for the recovery of assets and for sections of a building that are being taken down to be recycled, re-used or sold. Frequently, dismantling and demolition work alongside each other as a building structure if first stripped of items as part of a dismantling process before demolition of the rest of the structure begins.

Typical assets that can be dismantled include Structural Steel Framing Beams, Lead Work and Storage Tanks/Silos.

Site Clearance

Site Clearance is the process of removing demolition material including materials, machinery and other associated elements from a demolition site, leaving nothing but clear space for future development plans to commence.

Façade Retention

As more and more Architectural Firms and Property Developers look to retain the original exterior aesthetic of a building structure while introducing modern building practices to the new development, façade retention has become an increasingly beneficial and popular choice for the construction sector looking to preserve the external architectural features of a building.

This can only be used for historic building structures that have load bearing external walls.


On a lot of older buildings that require demolition work, asbestos is a common issue. At Balmore we are experts in the safe removal and management of asbestos roofs and asbestos tiling on residential and commercial properties in and around Glasgow and Edinburgh.
