Answer: manual or equipped, the demolition must adapt to the size of the project.

Mass demolition, by force of arms, is the first demolition technique. Today, tools mounted at the end of hydraulic excavators, cranes and mini-excavators are more commonly used in construction. Demolition pliers, hydraulic crusher, metal shears… Depending on the building to be destroyed, some tools will be more suitable than others. They will allow what is called "nibbling" of the construction, which consists in gradually demolishing the structure using a backhoe equipped with the appropriate tool. Blasting is reserved for buildings of more than seven floors, as is jacking, which consists, using hydraulic jacks, of exerting an oblique or horizontal thrust on the construction. In all cases, the use of a specialized company is strongly advised. You too, send us your DIY question.
