On a commercial level, we tend to talk a lot more about building things than destroying them. America is a spacious place, and there always seems to be room for growth. Virtually everywhere you go, there is growing development, as more and more new buildings are constructed.
But what goes up must eventually come down, and sometimes, it’s more practical to demolish a building and repurpose the space than to acquire a new property. If you’re in that rare situation where you have to make the call for a commercial building teardown, you’re in luck — ELEV8 Land Clearing and Demolition is the team to call.
We have years of experience handling demolition projects all over Jacksonville and the surrounding regions. Whether you’re tearing down a warehouse or a multi-floor office complex, we can give you our guarantee that we’ll get the job done swiftly, on time, and on budget.
Our Commercial Demolition Process
“Commercial demolition” is a pretty broad term, because unlike residential demolition, it pertains to just about any building that serves a commercial purpose, and a lot of them are wildly different from each other. But make no mistake — almost no commercial building is outside of our expertise, so if you’re unsure whether or not we’d be able to handle the job, don’t be afraid to ask. But no matter what the building is, we follow a fairly standard process.
Step 1 - Initial Inquiry and Free Quote
After you make your initial contact to us, we’ll assess your situation and get some details about your proposed demolition project. Within 24 hours, we’ll provide you with a free quote. At that point, it’s up to you whether or not you’d like to accept the job and move forward.
STEP 2 – ENVIRONMENTAL TESTING
The State of Florida’s Department of Environmental Protection requires that commercial properties are surveyed for Asbestos prior to demolition. ELEV8 handles this process for all of our commercial clients. First we obtain an Asbestos survey from a licensed third party Asbestos Surveyor. Upon receiving the results we help our client determine the most cost effective way to mitigate the Asbestos containing materials in accordance with the city and state requirements.
Step 3 - Permit Pulling
Pulling a permit for a commercial building demolition can be an extensive and involved process. Many of our commercial clients prefer to avoid this hassle and elect to have ELEV8 perform all tasks necessary to obtain the demolition permit. Once all of this leg work is complete, ELEV8 will pull the permit under our General Contractor’s license.
Step 4 - Utility Disconnects
There are many logistical tasks that need to be done when you’re tearing down a building, and utility disconnects are one of them. It’s essential that power and utilities are properly disconnected prior to the demolition process, and that’s yet another step that we’ll take care of for you. As Jacksonville’s trusted demolition experts, we want to make this as hands-off for you as possible so that the job can be done quickly and effectively.
Step 5 - Demolition/Teardown
On the scheduled day of demolition, we will arrive with our heavy equipment and get the job done. Our team at ELEV8 is highly experienced, and we know how to ensure that surrounding properties are unaffected by the demolition process.
Step 6 - Site Cleanup
We wouldn’t be very good demolition experts if we left the mess for you to clean up. As part of every demolition job, we clean the premises of all debris, haul it away, and leave you with a clean property that’s ready to be repurposed.
Who We Serve
We work with countless contractors in the Jacksonville area to repurpose old properties into ideal spots for new structures. Contractors are much more interested in building structures than destroying them, which is where we come in. If you are a contractor who needs to tear down any kind of commercial building under the sun, don’t hesitate to contact us.
One of the biggest advantages of our services is that it effectively clears the land and leaves it open for something new. We work with many developers to ensure that, after demolition is complete, the land is also sufficiently clear for their purposes. We will inquire about the project you’re working on, and make sure our demolition services leave everything in ship-shape for you to do your work.
Many churches build new places of worship on a regular basis, and sometimes this means you have to tear something down to get there. We’ve worked with several Jacksonville churches, not only in commercial demolition, but also land clearing and debris hauling. If you represent a church and you’re in need of our services, it wouldn’t be our first rodeo — don’t hesitate to give us a call.
Demolition is a keen topic of interest for municipalities. There is a lot of land that belongs to the government, whether they own it outright, or it was seized/foreclosed. In any case, we’re highly familiar with municipality officials. If you need an old building torn down that’s been abandoned for years, clearing an area for new government buildings to go up, we’ll be happy to assist.
