A lot of people think demoing is easy. It’ thankless work carried out by the dregs of society. But fortunately those dregs have been hired by me to complete this work and so they will at the very least have the best tools and instructions available.
This job was a little room where spirulina, which is a vitamin supplement, was placed into those tiny little pill cases. Fabricated from metal studs and plywood it was then completely covered with a washable fiber reinforced plastic.
Here are some pics at the start.
Here you can see all three levels of material; FRP, Plywood, Metal Stud.
The ceiling was the hard part because we were demoing a suspended ceiling made from metal lath and concrete. There is only one way to demo this type of ceiling if you can’t cut the wires from above. It’s with the smallest impact hammer with a scraper attachment.
The ceiling must be scraped clean of the concrete and then the lath must be cut with shears.
Finally we are left with just an open space. After this I turned off the fire sprinkler then cut and re-threaded the fire heads to a new height near the ceiling so they wouldn’t get broken. As well as cut out some old supply, drain and HVAC pipes.
