Concrete removal can be broken down in to three unit costs:
- Breaking up – Hand tools such as a jack hammer or machinery such as a mini digger
- loading – Manual labour or machinery
- Removing from site – skip, truck, trailer
The method used, either hand tools or machinery, for breaking up a concrete path or base will usually be determined by the size of the project. Cost wise, there’s not much in it on an area of 40 m2 or less but the bigger the area machinery becomes more cost effective.
Once broken up, loading the concrete rubble requires good labourers or a machine with bucket. Access plays a significant role here as it depends where the concrete is to be loaded to. If the loading area is a distance from the broken concrete then two labourers armed with wheel barrows can easily out perform the slower machine.
