So, it is up to the client to choose and tread carefully on who to entrust the project to. But calling a contractor is always the first step with such type of projects.

Building Inspection

Secondly, have the building inspected. The demolition contractors can actually or will help you with that. They will be the ones who will be processing those documents needed for that and which agency to submit to, but regardless all documents should be filled to have someone from the respective agency check the structure and make sure that the structure that is to be taken down is really owned by the one claiming the proprietor and also the reason for demolishing it must be clearly stated in the documents. This part is very important as it would be the legal justification for the said demolition project. As it would be very problematic if there is a different party that will protest and contest the said activity.

Apply for Permit

One the building has been inspected, the permit for demolition can then proceed and when all papers works are granted a permit will be given granting the operation to demolish a specific structure in a specific address and place. If the permit is granted only then can the demotion commence.

There are various ways in which it will go, one is a notice will be given out to the nearby buildings that such activity will commence given a time or that it will commence in a continuous manner where a building construction will follow after a demolition.
