Knocking Down Walls: Planning Professionally

Removing structural walls in your commercial space can have many benefits.


Perhaps you need to expand your office floor, make your kitchen larger, or remove a meeting room altogether.


When you undertake any structural demolition however, you need to understand that it’s not easy.


Removing a structural wall is an involved process, and there are certain steps you must take to ensure the job is done right.


To give you an idea of what is involved, here are some tips for removing a structural wall.


Get Approval


Before you make any changes, you need the approval of your landlord or building owner.


Some occupants go ahead with works without consulting the owner of the building. This results in disaster when their landlord finds out.


This is most likely a breach of your contract and can result in a large fine, or ejection from the premises. Avoid this by consulting with your landlord first.


Know Your Needs


Know exactly why you’re knocking down the wall, and why you need additional space.


It’s possible that you can achieve your aims without removing a wall. But if the wall needs to come out, Sydney City Rubbish will be there to help you.


Understand Your Structure


Obtaining blueprints from your landlord will make the process much easier.


If you’re completely in the dark, hire a structural engineer to assess your building. They’ll be able to tell you which walls can be removed.


Often, internal walls will have some kind of bracing elements. If these are removed incorrectly, it could affect the structural integrity of other parts of your building.


Therefore, it’s best to be safe.





Hire a Professional Contractor


No one will do it better than the professionals. To undertake this kind of job yourself is seriously risky business.


For one, anything could go wrong. You’d be putting peoples’ safety at risk, potentially costing your business countless dollars in fines, and won’t have the correct insurances.
