Building Demolitions

Environmental disturbances caused by building demolitions can be linked to significant adverse (bad) health effects due to potential human exposures associated with affected air quality, distribution of hazardous materials and/or contamination of nearby environments, including dispersal of pest populations. To minimize associated risks to health, there are a number of things that both property owners and demolition contractors must consider before, during and after any building demolition project.

These include, but are not necessarily limited to, the following:

  • Hazardous Materials Survey
  • Identifying Existing Pests
  • Site Planning
  • Work Plans
  • Management of Demolition Equipment, and
  • Site Activities

To learn more about each of the above tasks, please read the fact sheet on building demolitions (PDF 329KB).

Additional Information

View the City of London's website for more information on Demolition Permits or the Demolition Permit Process (PDF 198KB).
