John Tinnelly & Sons Ltd, has been successfully and safely carrying out major demolition and dismantling contracts since its foundation some 40 years ago.
Tinnelly Demolition is based on a combination of engineering and project management skills. With over 40 years of experience, many of its key personnel have been employed with the company for upwards on 20 years.
Investment, experience, continuous training, and the principals of safety enshrined in the company ethos, ensures that Tinnelly Demolition remains the design teams choice for that “impossible” job.
All contracts are carried out under full insurance cover, and adhere to the standards set out in BS 6187 (2000): Code of Practice for Demolition.
Planned investment in the latest plant and machinery, combined with experience and continuous training in the latest demolition techniques have guaranteed that Tinnelly Demolition has remained at the forefront of the industry.
Their modern fleet of demolition plant with specialist attachments, including a Liebherr 954 28 metre high-reach excavator (the largest in Ireland) ensures that Tinnelly Demolition has the capability to carry out a wide range of contracts efficiently and safely.
Tinnelly Demolition are fully committed to identifying and utilising the most appropriate methods of demolition to fulfill contracts effectively, safely and in the required timescale..Explosive Demolition, while spectacular in its execution, requires meticulous planning and precise implementation.
Hundreds, if not thousands of small charges are used to systematically weaken the building’s structural supports to ensure controlled collapse.Weeks of planning, drilling, consultation and coordination culminates in a successful demolition in several seconds “flat!”
Construction & demolition waste accounts for up to 80% of the total waste generated in Ireland each year.
Even the most simple of buildings are constructed from a myriad of materials, which need to be segregated at the demolition stage if effective reuse or recycling is to take place.
Tinnelly Demolition have been stripping out buildings for over forty years and are committed to reducing the amount of material sent to landfill.
Historic buildings that have outlived their original function nevertheless dictate the character and culture of our towns and cities.
Protecting this heritage is obviously of vital importance to anyone involved in the regeneration of urban centres, and often what can successfully be left behind will decide the whole theme of new projects.
Tinnelly Demolition is experienced in the art of facade retention, preserving the unique nature of such buildings for incorporation into the new project , while carefully removing the redundant elements.
Buildings with shallow or weak foundations require specialist attention, especially when adjoining new developments.
The delicate procedure of underpinning, excavating beneath an existing foundation to extend and increase its bearing capacity, requires expertise and meticulous planning.
Tinnelly Demolition have a wide range of plant and equipment for hire – ranging from 70 tonne excavators down to half tonne mini-diggers, all supplied with skilled operators. Plant has been sent on hire as far away as Sierra Leone, and a wide range of specialist equipment is always available to make that next big job just a little easier.
Modern construction techniques compounded by high land values have created their own problems when such buildings are due for demolition. Multi-storey, city centre developments cannot be demolished in the traditional manner. Proximity to adjoining properties dictates the need for the careful dismantling of these constructions.
Complex stadia developments such as Croke Park and Semple Stadium, Thurles also require careful and consideration when redevelopment is required.
Tinnelly Demolition possesses the necessary engineering and project managing skills to ensure that these modern complex structures are deconstructed without risk to the public or adjoining property.
They produce no harmful fumes and very little noise and can alleviate hand-arm vibration problems and White finger, traditionally associated with manual work in confined spaces.
The machines are very versatile and come with a variety of attachments ranging from powerful percussive breakers, hydraulic crushing jaws, loading buckets and concrete milling heads.
The health and safety benefits of using these machines are as follows:
The machine is remote controlled which means that the operator can stand up to 50 metre away.
The working area can be easier controlled as there is nobody within the proximity of the machine.
If the structure being demolished is unstable or there may be a risk of falling debris then the operator is at a safe distance.
Concrete crushing generates little or no noise and the use of such attachments on these machines is very effective, offering the additional benefit of little or no vibration. Therefore there is far less risk of any structural damage occuring.
With 4 easily changeable attachments and the ability to manoeuvre on rubber or metal tracks, the Brokks can cope with all terrains, even stairs; the compact size of the machines enabling access through doorways, openings ranging from 800mm to 1,500mm width.
The percussive Hammer outclasses many machines 4 times its size, the Hydraulic jaws can be used for crunching up to 550mm reinforced concrete and the Bucket is excellent for excavations, trenching or clearing debris.
