DSM has held a full asbestos licence continuously since 1990. As licensed asbestos removal contractors, we identify, manage and remove asbestos containing materials in-house; our in-house asbestos surveying capability, ensures that should concerns be raised during our works about discovered material, the issue can quickly be resolved.
DSM have extensive experience in the removal of the non-structural fabric of buildings to enable the structures to be repurposed. This is commonly known in the demolition industry as ‘soft strip’, returning buildings to their original structural shell. DSM are experiences in the sorting and segregation on sift strip materials to maximise recycling and minimising going to landfill.
Façade retention is the process of demolishing a building or part of a building whilst retaining the façade of the unique structure shell. DSM have proven experience and expertise in this field.
Our in-house team collaborates closely with our clients, structural engineers and local authorities to provides practical solutions in line with the project budget and programmed to deliver the complete façade retention service. We engage early during the development stage of projects to design façade support systems which ensure health & safety as well as uninterrupted delivery of the rest of the works.
