Dismantling & Plant Removal

O’Brien Demolition has vast experience when it comes to the dismantling and removal of plant and equipment. Whether it’s within an operational food manufacturing factory, or a redundant chemical facility, our teams have the specialist knowledge needed to remove that asset in such a way it can be easily reinstalled at a new location.


O’Brien Demolition is a specialist in the dismantling of live and redundant industrial facilities and plants. We offer this service as a stand-alone provision or a fully project managed solution from initial assessment through to site clearance.

The key to a successful dismantling project is a detailed understanding of the structure or equipment to be dismantled prior to the commencement of works. Whether it is a multi-storey tower block or a manufacturing facility, this level of understanding, coupled with the unrivalled experience within our team, allows for the removal of a structure or piece of equipment in such a way that its integrity for reuse is not compromised.

The driving force behind this type of dismantling is reuse or resale of the asset. Our ability to plan, tag, label and log, carefully dismantle and package a wide variety of plants, equipment and structures enables the client to maximise the value of the disinvestment on site.

Following a detailed site survey we provide bespoke plant and industrial dismantling services to best suit the requirements of the client, whether it be a single machine or a full scale factory move.
