Manage Demolition of Buildings and Structures

Learn Key Aspects of Safe and Sustainable Demolition Management with our Course



Demolition works typically involve tearing down of buildings or civil engineering structures. The improper handling of demolition works can give rise to various risks and environmental impacts.
