Preparing a structure for Deconstruction

What is Deconstruction?

Deconstruction is an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional demolition. We at Fleck Contracting care deeply about the environment and make sure all of our deconstruction projects reflect that belief by collaborating with our clients ensuring their deconstruction is as green as possible. By applying Deconstruction Services, opposed to using Traditional Demolition, 70% – 90% of materials are prevented from going to landfills. Our aim has always been to do our best to preserve each of the material’s highest value in order to recover costs on the project and largely reduce the carbon footprint of each one of projects, securing both our clients and our cities happiness.


Vancouver is important to us; we want to make sure that its beauty is untainted by Traditional Demolition that negatively affects the environment. We place a keen emphasis on practices that focus on the LEED – Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design – system.

The Residential Demolition Process in Six Easy Steps!

Before we can start, we need a hazmat report, without a hazmat report, Fleck Contracting LTD. can’t send out an estimator to your location to give a definite price of the deconstruction/demolition.
We highly encourage you to contact your local municipality to learn what permits will be needed for your project. Each project and location is different and every municipality requires different permits before a project can be started.
Email with the hazmat report attached, then we can Google earth the accessibility and exact location of the house. Once we have the hazmat report Fleck Contract LTD. will arrange for one of our friendly estimators to arrange a site visit with our abatement contractors to get the very best estimate for the hazardous removal and the price of the deconstruction/demolition as well. This will generally take a few days to put the pricing together.
Our friendly estimator will provide you with a quote that outlines what work will be completed and provide an estimate (our estimates are always very competitive!) From there you can obtain your permits from the city, have all your various services disconnected and move to the next and most exciting step!
Work can begin. Once all the hazmat has been extracted from the site, Fleck Contracting LTD. will dispatch our crew to complete any hand work & then bring in the heavy equipment for the substantial demolition/deconstruction. Generally, if there are no unforeseen delays, we will have the job finished with a week.
Fleck Contracting LTD. will sort out the material from the project at the time of deconstruction/demolition on site and remove to the waste to the assorted facilities for landfill and recycling.

Demolition FAQ's

A Hazmat report is required by Work Safe BC regulation before any demolition/deconstruction can begin. It's a report that shows Fleck Contracting LTD. what different hazardous materials my be contained on the site before deconstruction. The hazmat report will provide an overall assessment of the project, taking samples of suspect materials that may contain hazardous waste that MUST be removed prior to initiation of demolition/deconstruction. The average cost of a hazmat report could be as low as $500.00 and upwards. This depends on the size and age of the house or building.
Unfortunately, in the demolition/deconstruction industry, it’s very difficult to give a average price on how much a project will cost. Prices can vary depending on the size of the job, the material involved and results of HAZMAT testing, salvage necessary etc. What we suggest is to send an email to with a description of the project (and some pictures if possible) and the hazmat report and one of our estimators will be in touch.
Once the hazmat has been removed, we can generally take down a house within a couple of days.
We separate all the waste out into bins where it is taken to recycling dumps where possible. Fleck Contracting LTD. makes every effort to keep whatever we can out of the landfill but unfortunately, sometimes it's unavoidable.
  • These guys are the best.  Always ready to get the job done.  I have used Chris, Pat and theirs guys on several occasions to haul away construction material from my yard.  They are always on time, friendly, and their prices can't be beat.  I will always call them for all my hauling needs!

  • Fleck Contracting was great to work with, really friendly, honest people.  We contacted them to remove our chimney. They came out very quickly to provide a bid to my husband and the price was great.  They were able to remove the chimney that weekend.  The team came early on a Saturday and got to work immediately.  It was really tough work, and took them several hours to remove everything.  They worked really hard, had great attitudes.

  • Chris and his crew arrived on time and were incredibly professional and knowledgeable - exactly what you hope for when hiring a contractor to come into your home. He kept me updated on progress throughout the day, finished on time, and made sure to clean up.
