In-house Explosives Engineering

Robinson & Birdsell Ltd is one of the select few companies with its own explosives division operating nationwide and internationally. Consequently, we are often required to fulfil this specialist requirement for other demolition companies and organisations.

Robinson & Birdsell Ltd has undertaken the demolition, by explosives, of numerous unconventional structures. These include: power stations; high rise buildings; post tensioned and pre-stressed concrete units; conventional brick; masonry and concrete structures.

Invariably, the work requires close liaison with all relevant parties, local services and statutory authorities. In addition, the company offers special services to provide design calculations and drawings, environmental predictions and monitoring for the projects undertaken.

We offer comprehensive services including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Full Method Statement and Risk Assessment for every discipline
  • Structural calculations
  • Environmental monitoring
  • Design mode of collapse
  • Pre-weakening
  • Drilling
  • Protection at source
  • Supply and installation of explosives

Insurance for the project can be arranged to satisfy the client requirements. This can be tailored to the specific project requirements, providing cover of up to £50 million, as required.
