There’s something about Manchester. It’s a city in motion – always progressing, changing, and re-energising itself and its skyline, from private homes to the biggest industrial buildings. Anyone with a passion for construction and development will get a rush when they draw up to the city.

From Salford Quays to the historic-modern fusion taking place in Bowdon, the city is always reinventing itself, and we’ve gained invaluable experience working on sites in and around its borders.

Take a look at the services we offer in Manchester and the surrounding area.

Our Services

Soft Strip Demolition

Stripping a building back to the bare bones is one of the most important parts of any renovation work, but it’s also a tricky and (potentially) time-consuming task, particularly if you want to maintain a sustainable project and recycle materials wherever possible.

At Abruss, this is our specialty: creating a sound, comprehensive plan for removing any elements that need to be replaced without impacting essential features, then sorting and recycling waste materials as efficiently as possible.

Asbestos Removal

Since 1999, the use of asbestos in construction has been banned – but, due to its popularity as a cheap and versatile material for insulation and roofing throughout the 1900s, finding asbestos in older homes and buildings remains a common issue across the UK.

When discovered, it is vital that all traces of asbestos are removed – but this mustn’t be attempted if you don’t have the necessary knowledge, training, and experience.

We know how to remove and dispose of asbestos safely, and are always on-hand to help free homes, businesses, and industrial sites across Manchester of this dangerous material.

Site Clearance

One of the keys to keeping on track with any construction schedule, no matter the size or scope of the project, is efficient site clearance. From ridding the site of waste following demolition work to preparing the site for landscaping work, each phase is dependent on a clean, clear canvas on which the team can work.

We bring the same core values to site clearance that we bring to any other service, aiming to recycle as much material as possible, work efficiently and safely, and collaborate with clients to ensure we are always able to keep pace with the ongoing work.

Sometimes, traditional demolition just isn’t an option. When this is the case, the importance of caution, delicacy, and attention to detail is all the more important – and that’s exactly where our expertise becomes invaluable to site managers and clients.

Whether it’s old, precarious equipment or a building positioned too close to its neighbours to be demolished quickly, the Abruss team can ensure safe and efficient dismantling and waste disposal, so that work can continue on as quickly as possible.

We work closely with clients to ensure that all the necessary steps and precautions are taken prior to demolition work, but our extensive experience in this area also means that we can make those concessions as efficiently and easily as possible.

From careful documentation to the demolition itself – and the waste removal that follows – our team handle everything on your behalf, to the highest legal, environmental, and safety standards.
