As a national demolition contractor, DDS has grown significantly since we started operating over 40 years ago and we now employ over 90 people across our group operations. Undertaking projects across a wide range of sectors, and applying the experience gained from the demolition of structures as diverse as condemned Multi-Storey Car Parks and Paper Mills to redundant Power Stations, we take great care and consideration to appoint the right team on the ground with the right experience to each project.
Always aiming to be “The Contractor of Choice”, we take pride in our reputation as experts within our field, focusing on Customer Satisfaction, Health, Safety, Welfare and Environmental considerations. DDS constantly strive to fulfill our exacting customer requirements at every stage of the demolition & build process, providing complete project management from inception to completion.
Demolition is more than the removal of a structure; it is clearing the way for potential future development. The environmental implications on demolition activities have changed considerably over recent years and DDS remains at the forefront of the field, with strict risk assessment regimes, consistently high standards of training and up to the minute plant and equipment. This facilitates the optimisation of health & safety regulations as well as increasing the potential for recycling at every stage of the contract. Project specific advice will be offered where needed and an individual solution will be tailored to the prospective client’s requirements. Each site is considered individually, to create bespoke management plans like Method Statements, Health & Safety plans, Site Waste Management Plans and Traffic Management Plans. This thorough pre-contract planning puts us in the best possible position to complete a hassle free contract, to budget and programme. The methods we employ are the most efficient possible, reducing noise and vibration as much as is practically possible, and our environmental policies contribute to our overall high standards and performance. DDS continually invest in our plant, to ensure our operatives and clients enjoy the benefits of reliable, technologically advanced machinery. We have our own extensive fleet of a wide range of machinery and attachments, to ensure we can offer the most effective and efficient service to all of our clients.

The Demolition Protocol states “The contractor should be asked to demonstrate that more than 5% reclaimed materials, by value, have been procured for the new development.” As a company who were founded to operate building reclamation service, DDS Demolition understand the benefits of reclamation and aim to reclaim as much as is possible from every site for reuse within new developments or resale from our depot. Our pre-demolition analysis outlines every material that can be salvaged, this methodical approach minimises possible wastage of salvageable materials. DDS Demolition operates an in house reclamation depot, gaining re-sale value from many of the reclaimable materials found on site. This enables the company to pass competitive pricings on to the client, whilst protecting environmental welfare.
From our own specialist reclamation yard based in Manston, Kent, we stock a wide variety of salvaged products, from reconditioned floorboards to antique fireplaces. To see our extensive range please visit our website www.reclamation-yard.co.uk.
