At 1Geo, we fell there has been an appalling waste of existing resources as the demolition of buildings accelerated. Whilst some of the quick, or ‘dirty’ demolition was necessary for safety, this practice has continued on safe buildings in order to save money.
We specialise in deconstruction as opposed to demolition – the top-down removal of the building, whilst saving any materials that can be returned to the building owner to be incorporated into their new dwelling, or re-used on other projects. While this may take 3 weeks, instead of 3 hours for a bulldozer, we know we are not contributing to a future ecological disaster in Christchurch when these contaminated rubbish piles leech into the environment.
As a responsible citizen, we encourage you to pressure Council and Government to enforce stricter processes in the demolition of your property.
