  • What is the structure made of (brick, wood, steel)?
  • Will you require the foundation to be removed? If so, how thick is it?
  • How close are the surrounding buildings?

The professional commercial demolition crew at Rock Environmental offers a variety of options when it comes to safely demolish a structure on your property. Commercial demolition projects can arise for many different reasons, including disaster recovery and storm damage cleanup, and partial or full demolition.

Once we can develop a demolition project plan, we will obtain any required permits before starting the project. Listed below are some of the common calls we receive for commercial demolition services. If you don’t see your project on the list, just give us a call at (585) 340-6799 because we do it all.

Commercial Structure Demolition

Demolition of a specific structure can mean different things. Sometimes, just a small area of a building needs to be demolished. This often happens for a remodeling project. Full demolition of structures including inground pools can also be completed by Rock Environmental.

Partial or Selective Demolition (Interior Demolition)

Complete demolition of structures

Multi-story building demolition

Inground Pool Demolition

Commercial Concrete & Steel Demolition

Concrete and steel demolition services often require larger machinery and equipment due to the size and weight of the materials. Concrete slabs, foundations, steel interior items, and other commercial areas are all services handled by Rock Environmental professionals.

Commercial Demolition Disposal Services


Material Recycling - The wood, concrete, and other structural materials can often be recycled and used for other projects. Our commercial demolition team has been working with recycling facilities that allow proper recycling and reuse of these materials. 

Dismantling and Material Recovery - Before a complete demolition, our team will go in and salvage any materials that can be recycled or reused. We handle the removal safely so that you don’t have any unwanted materials left behind. We often find copper piping, or weathered barn wood to be highly reused. 

Debris Removal - Rock Environmental provides its own roll-off dumpsters. So no need to worry about additional rentals or extra costs associated with your commercial demolition project.

Hazardous Materials Disposal - The Rock Environmental team has been HAZWOPER trained and can safely remove hazardous materials from your structure. This may include mold, asbestos, or items with lead paint. If any of these materials have been found, they will need to be removed before any demolition.


Demolition & Deconstruction Methods

Explosive Demolition - The explosive demolition process uses materials that turn a building or structure into rubble which is then removed. Another way is to use implosion, which takes down taller structures by having them fall within itself which makes them come straight down. 

Non-Explosive Demolition - No explosives are used with this method. Our Rochester, NY commercial demolition contractors will use heavy equipment such as wrecking balls, excavators, and bulldozers for demolition and excavation.

Selective (Interior) Demolition - This demolition process is used on a smaller, more specific area of a commercial building. Often used before a remodel or with expansions of a space.  

Deconstruction/Dismantling - This method is used when there are materials that can be salvaged or reused. Instead of using heavy machinery to demolish the structure, it is carefully taken apart. Often done by hand, this process will take longer. However, there will be less debris to remove once the project is completed.


Commercial Demolition Equipment

Hydraulic Shears and Rock Breakers - These massive tools allow our team to quickly and effectively break up a large rock and concrete slabs. The sears allow for clean cuts through most materials such as wood, metal, and concrete. 

Wrecking Balls - A giant ball made often of steel, is suspended from a crane and swung repeatedly to tear down a building. 

Cranes - While cranes can be used for wrecking balls, it is one of the most important pieces in a demolition project. Cranes allow our crews to reach taller buildings, and for the more precise dismantling of larger commercial properties.

Bulldozers & Excavators - Bulldozers can be used to knock down smaller structures (barns, sheds). Additionally, the materials can then be pushed away from the site for easier cleanup and removal. Excavators are often used to help maneuver materials into dumpsters or to assist with digging up materials from underground.

Dumpsters - Among the most essential for clearing a demolition site. Since we provide our dumpsters, the cleanup and removal process will go much smoother, making it quick and easy. All materials that can be recycled will be properly removed and handled with care. All waste will also be taken to the proper facilities.
