Demolition – Mt Gravatt East
Ballard’s Earthmoving & Demolition were asked to demolish an old weatherboard house in Mount Gravatt. The job also required digging up concrete slabs which made up the underneath of the house and the old driveway.
Did you know: we have an extensive range of trucks and machinery, we bring our own water truck to the job as part of our works to supply the volume of water that is needed to suppress the dust because a garden hose will not keep the dust down.
It is time saving using the right equipment utilising Ballard’s biggest Combo, the “SuperCombo” 3Ton Excavator, 13Ton Excavator & Skidsteer with a range of attachments and temporary fencing all supplied to site on our step-deck float.
During demolition, to keep dust under control and avoid angered dusty neighbours, we spray water onto the area being demolished. The job also required digging up concrete slabs which made up the underneath of the house and the old driveway.
As always, the Ballard’s Earthmoving team did a great job of clean up, leaving the site in a manageable and free-draining state, with all traces of the demolition work gone. Have a look at the photos and see for yourself!

Ballard’s are by far the best demolition company I have come across. Tony took the time to quote our job properly (not just factor in extra charges for things that weren’t necessary).
Tony stayed in touch with us while we had some issues with other work being done on our site and he is extremely patient, knowledgeable and helpful. Tony always made time to take my calls as well which was really appreciated. Once demo day came, Tony and the team arrived exactly when they said they would.
Our site was in a high density area with a lot of apartments surrounding the site and Tony and the team were professional in every sense, and kept all the neighbours happy by managing the works extremely well. He has all the right equipment for an efficient demolition. He kept everything watered down (to minimise dust), and best of all they were able to complete our whole job in 3 days, which was far quicker than I ever expected considering the amount of materials and buildings they had to remove.
I can honestly say that I believe Tony treated our block of land like it was his own. They worked extremely hard to remove all the rubble, and left the site immaculate, flat, clean and ready to build on. They also did a great job with getting building approvals and organising sewer capping for our job also. And as a great bonus they delivered a google drive full of photos of the job from start to finish which shows everything they did in a lot of detail.
Finally Anna was so nice and pleasant to deal with in the office. She was responsive, polite, and extremely quick to get back to us on any questions. So overall, I can honestly say I would definitely recommend Ballard’s to anyone considering any demolition work, and if I demolish another house again I’ll definitely be using Ballards.
