Physical Demolition

Tayside House will be deconstructed on a floor-by-floor basis.

Scaffolding will be erected around the whole building

Small robotic breakers will be used to deconstruct walls, floors, beams and columns in sequence.

These small robotic breakers are worked remotely, rather than operators sitting in a cab.

This process will see the building brought down from 18-storeys to a height at which we can safely switch to conventional machine demolition

Approximately 8,000 tonnes of material will be taken out in this phase of the de-construction, which is due to be complete in Spring 2013.
