Wrecking Services For Buffalo, NY

Western New York's Best Demolition Services

As part of constantly improving Buffalo, NY, sometimes old buildings and structures must be completely removed and built up from scratch. It’s one challenge to knock down, say a house, but to knock down a large building composed of steel and concrete, it becomes much more of a challenge.

Doing the job safely, efficiently, and without causing damage to surrounding buildings or structures is always a challenge that our team approaches carefully in a well-planned process. Not only do we properly plan our wrecking to be as accurate and contained as possible, but we also have the equipment and connections needed to handle a variety of unique circumstances.

Our work is challenging, and one factor contributing to the challenges we face is meeting the timeframes and deadlines of our clients. Working thoroughly and having a detailed action plan is key to our success. We have fine-tuned these processes over the past few decades to bring proven tactics to help account for various unique situations.

About Our Past Wrecking Projects


bethlehem steelEmpire Building Diagnostics was contracted to demolish the former Bethlehem Steel facility in Western New York. Inspecting for asbestos is part of the thorough process we go through to ensure our demolition is done safely. In this case, friable asbestos was manually abated. Non-friable roofing and window components were demolished, and the structure was a controlled demolition.  

The structure was systematically demolished so the brick walls could be removed and recycled as hard fill instead of disposed of in a landfill. During demolition, all steel was decontaminated and recycled. 


parking garage demoEBD was enlisted to complete the total wrecking of a parking ramp down to the foundation, leaving the slab in place on grade. Due to the downtown location, sidewalks and roads were closed, and protection of the adjacent structure was a vital component of the project. Protecting nearby structures is always a major component of the planning process. This is similar to the careful planning that needs to take place during selective demolition, where containing our work is very important.

6700 transit roadFor this project, we were contracted to conduct abatement and wrecking of a former hotel. This is another example of abatement needed to proceed safely with the rest of the wrecking project. This is all accounted for in the planning phase and can be completed safely and on the property. The project was completed in 2020, and the entirety of the former hotel was demolished and removed completely, clearing a way to prepare for new construction.
