Term Definition

The act of tearing down or breaking up a structure like a house, home, road, building or bridge completely. When a structure is demolished, it must be done carefully and responsibly, to ensure damage is kept to a minimum and injuries do not occur. The process may require the use of special trucks and vehicles, heavy machinery and even explosives. Once the demolition process is complete, disposal of the debris must be done either through recycling of materials or hauling waste to an appropriate disposal facility.
