Professional Demolition Services


Demolition is typically thought of as blowing up buildings or swinging a wrecking ball in order to take a building down. What most people do not realize is that demolition is an engineered process of safely and efficiently removing a variety of structures. Implosions make up less than one percent of all demolition projects and the crane with wrecking ball technique is seldom utilized anymore.

At ABW, demolition is performed by highly skilled personnel with state of the art equipment. Hydraulic excavators have replaced cranes with wrecking balls and allow demolition to be completed in a much more controlled and efficient manner. Our excavators can be equipped with multiple demolition attachments including hydraulic shears, concrete processors, hammers, grapples and magnets. These attachments are easily interchangeable and provide alternative tools for completing demolition of various structures.

There is a great deal of time and energy devoted to the engineered pre-planning phase of every demolition project. Special consideration is placed on environmental issues, public safety and health risks, employee safety hazards, and recycling processes. Companies that perform demolition services are considered specialty contractors.

Associated Building Wreckers has been performing demolition services since 1933. Associated is one of the largest demolition contractors specializing in demolition, asbestos removal and concrete crushing in Massachusetts.
