If a property is being demolished, it’s expected that a multi-utility disconnection will be required. Many local and national regulations require utilities and services to and from the building to be disconnected before demolition can take place.
Disconnecting utilities before demolition is a necessary safety measure that helps protect workers, the public, and the environment, as well as ensure compliance with regulations and prevent service interruptions.
Electricity and gas in particular pose a serious safety risk if they’re still active when demolition takes place. Demolition work involves heavy machinery and often results in the disturbance of the ground. Live utilities, such as gas and electricity, can pose a significant safety hazard to workers and the public if they are not properly shut off. Contact with live underground services can be expensive, and sometimes even fatal.
Another danger of demolishing before services have been disconnected is the potential damage to supplies of local power infrastructure. By disconnecting the utilities in a controlled manner, service interruptions to surrounding properties can be minimised or avoided altogether.
