Demolition & Deconstruction for Metro Vancouver, the Fraser Valley and Throughout British Columbia
Demolition is the tearing-down of buildings and other structures. Demolition contrasts with deconstruction, which involves taking a building apart while carefully preserving valuable elements for re-use.
For small buildings, such as houses, that are only two or three stories high, demolition is a rather simple process. The building is pulled down by an excavator. However, before any demolition activities, there are many steps that need to take place — including but not limited to performing asbestos abatement, removing hazardous or regulated materials, obtaining necessary permits, submitting necessary notifications, disconnecting utilities, rodent baiting, and development of site-specific safety and work plans. We make it easy for you and specialize in difficult, tricky jobs.

Reuse & Recycling of Demolition Material
Requirements to reuse and recycle demolition materials depends on the municipality you are in, the type of building you are taking down and when the structure was built. For example, if you are in Vancouver, you need to determine if the structure was built prior to 1940. We specialize in the Deconstruction and Demolition of pre-1940 homes.
If the home was built after 1940, you can speed up the demolition permit process by recycling 75% of materials. Alternatively, if you demo using traditional demolition methods, your building or development permit is required before starting the demolition work.
Whatever method you choose, some material, such as drywall, must be recycled because they are banned from the landfill. At Fast Trac we understand what is required and dispose of materials responsibly and properly. Fast Trac even has it’s own conveniently located transfer site. Don’t get caught up in costly and lengthy delays. If you want your project completed professionally, in a timely manner, and within your budget, then call the experts at Fast Trac.
