Designated Substances Survey (DSS) and Environmental Site Assessment

We believe that our environment is precious and seek to improve and preserve it by taking the necessary steps to complete projects on time and on budget.

The many types of materials found in today's sites include but are not limited to:

We provide a Designated Substances Survey (DSS) that identifies which substances are present. This is critical to establish the concentration and location of substances for abatement removal. Eco Demolition will establish an environmental site assessment in order to understand the unique nature of every site. This is provided to the client when tendering a house demolition or dismantling project.

Demolition Services FAQs

  • How long does it take to demolish a house?
    A standard 1800 square foot house takes approximately one week to tear down, with 3 days of aboveground work, and 2 days of foundation removal and backfilling.  If asbestos is present additional time will need to be allotted.   

  • Do you leave the site cleared to the builder's requirements?
    Yes. We demolish all buildings and structures; remove appropriate vegetation, footings and any building rubble under the surface, and backfill the excavted areas if requested (or leave the excavation area open if a new build is being placed in the same location). The site is left clean and graded, ready for new construction.

  • Can you remove Asbestos?
    Yes. All asbestos removal is carried out by our own licensed staff in accordance with Occupational Health and Safety and TSSA regulations. Our technicians are Asbestos Type 1,2,3, 253W and 253S Certified, and trained in proper removal and disposal proceedures.

  • Do I need a permit to demolish my house or other structure?
    Yes (depedning on sice). A Demolition Permit must be obtained from the City or Municipality in which the structure is located. A demolition permit is required to demolish all or part of a building. The demolition project can not start without a Demolition Permit.  However outbuildings under certain sq.ft size may not require a permit, consult with your local building department. 

  • What if my house/building has salvageable materials?
    Our ability to salvage materials will vary on every project, depending on access, stability, and age of the structure.  A consultation will be necessary prior to the commencement of any demolition work.

  • What about the Utilities? ie: Electricity, Gas, Water, Telephone & Cable 
    Utility disconnection is the responsibility of the property owner, and can be done simply by calling the utility suppliers.   The electricity and gas will need to be disconnected at the property line prior to the start of any demolition work. Water can usually be shut off at the property line, whilst telephone cables can be cut, rolled up and attached back to the pole.

  • Are you a licensed demolition company?
    Demolition companies as such do not require a license to demolish structures. However, Eco Demolition is an Ontario Corporation Certified and Registered with TSSA, MTO and the WSIB. Our technicians are Asbestos Type 1, 2, 3, 253W and 253S Certified. We are fully insured with 10 million in liability coverage.

  • How much notice is needed to book in a demolition?
    Two to three weeks is generally needed to organize demolition permit applications and to arrange all utilities and site services to be abolished.  However the time it takes for a building department to approve a permit can
    vary depending on the property location, size, zoning, etc...
