Whether demolition is the only scope of work or it is the starting point of a much larger project, Avid is up for the challenge. Our demolition team will deconstruct and remove all existing components that are no longer desirable, providing a clean, new foundation to build upon. Our services include the demolition of walls, ceilings, interior structures, concrete, all flooring finishes, floor grinding, and preparation for new finishes. As a full-service company, once demolition is complete, we can help rebuild the space back to base building standards and even include a fresh coat of paint. This enables landlords to deal with only one company, saving both time and money, allowing them to show potential tenants the new space in a shorter turnaround time. Avid is also proactive in helping to save the environment by reusing and recycling certain materials on future projects whenever possible.
