Swimming Pool Demolition
We specialize in in-ground swimming pool and structural demolition. To tear down a building and/or a pool requires more than just a hammer. It takes a contractor whose principal contracting business is in connection with fixed works requiring specialized engineering knowledge and skill. In other words, to demolish your pool, it takes someone who is legally licensed, has experience and is bonded and insured. Economic opportunities may tempt homeowners to hire a non-expert for less but when hiring someone, you have to make sure that whoever you are hiring for this kind of work,they should have each and every one of these qualities. One or two is not good enough. It’s a dangerous work and when it’s time to use the heavy equipment to demolish whatever structure is to be demolished,safety measures is a priority for
us. safety measures is a priority for us.We make sure that the homeowners are not only safe but also feel safe. We want homeowners to feel that they can trust us to get the job done in a reasonable time frame that works for our clients, and perform our work within our client’s budget. There are different types of in-ground pools and for each type of pool there are different ways to demolish each one and as experts of in-ground pool demolition, we can demolish any of these in-ground pools. To get an estimate of how much it will cost to get your pool demolished, schedule an in-home consultation by calling us at 510-435-0829.
Excavating is one of the most dangerous construction operations and it’s not just because it requires heavy equipment to get the job done. According to OSHA, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, excavating is defined as “any man-made cut, cavity, trench, or depression in the earth’s surface formed by earth removal. This can include excavations for anything from cellars to highways. A trench is defined as a narrow underground excavation that is deeper than it is wide, and no wider than 15 feet (4.5 meters).” To prevent any hazardous outcomes to anyone involved in this work, NOECON takes safety measures
by following OSHA’s guidelines. We start by pre-planning our work before we get started. It is important for us to take each new job with the utmost care and preparation. The next step OSHA standards require us to follow is to determine the location of utility installations and for safety measures.
For this step, NOECON calls 811, the Underground Service Alert of Northern California (http://www.usanorth.org/) to bring in someone who can locate the installations which include sewer, telephone, fuel, electric, and water lines; or any other underground installation. There are two steps that make up the excavation process and they are “cut” and “fill.” To cut is to excavate or dig, while “fill” is to do what the term implies. The former is done to lower the elevation of an area and the latter is to raise the elevation. After excavation is done, OSHA requires us to shore the walls of any trench that is at least 3 feet underground with a supporting post to prevent the walls of the trench from disintegrating. After these steps are performed, we carry out with our project. After the “fill-in” step is done, compaction must be followed in order to increase the density of the soil that is being used to fill in the hole. Compaction helps to reduce long-term settlement. After the area is compacted, we have to grade the area in order to create a slope that is away from any structures (house/building/etc.) in order to keep water away from damaging your home in the future. Excavation projects are done when we work with underground earthwork/utilities such as electrical conduit, sewage systems, water, gas, and drainage systems.
Site clearing is the process in which everything is removed and disposed from a site, including small trees, bushes, and concrete. Clearing is usually the first step to any construction or demolition project but not always. Clearing is a simple process. We simply haul and recycle the residual of the job site away.
We install French drains which is initially approached by excavating a trench and then we fill the trench with gravel or drain rock. The amount of gravel or drain rock that fills the trench varies according to the local ordinances. After the gravel fills a few inches of the trench, we apply a perforated pipe that redirects surface and groundwater away from an area. After the pipe is placed, more gravel is added to finish surrounding the pipe. These drains are used to prevent ground and/or surface water from damaging the foundation of the house. French drains are also used behind retaining walls to relieve ground water pressure. They are usually installed near the perimeter of a house at the lowest point or where water will not drain back in the direction of the house. The drain has to slope downward.
