Memphis Wrecking Company (MWC) offers a wide variety of demolition services including the removal of commercial, industrial and residential buildings as well as interior strip outs, asbestos abatement, mold remediation, underground tank removal, plant dismantlement and many other types of structures.

 The following descriptions outline specific differences between the various demolition services we offer:


Implosion is the most spectacular form of demolition. Complete destruction is achieved by locating and eliminating key support columns with precision-timed dynamite and steel charges.

Conventional Demolition. 

Conventional Demolition is the most familiar type of demolition. We expertly use ball and cranes, a fleet of trackhoes, front-end loaders, backhoes, and heavy equipment, as well as man-and-crowbar, which are all traditional methods of conventional demolition. Our employees are experts at removing any structure with the highest degree of safety.

Concrete Removal.

The most difficult task is the removal of concrete. We are trained specialists in this arena. Underground structures, sometimes massive, can complicate what visibly appears routine.

Environmental Procedures.

We have a "Competent Person" on site per state regulations. The state requires that a supervisor trained and qualified as a "Competent Person" be on site to identify any potential asbestos hazards, thereby protecting the employees on site, the public and the building from any contamination. Asbestos surveys must be taken on all nonresidential structures to obtain demolition permits. Memphis Wrecking Company is the only demolition company in the Memphis area state licensed by Tennessee, Arkansas and Mississippi to remove underground storage tanks. We are aware of the owner's environmental concerns and can identify, evaluate and assist in resolving most environmental issues.

Interior Demolition.

Most often referred to as strip-outs. Interior demolition is mandated when the superstructure is to remain intact. All interior non-load bearing walls, plumbing, heating, air-conditioning and other structural elements are removed as specified, leaving the remaining structure to be renovated for newer, more profitable use.

Partial Structure Demolition.

A portion of a building remains intact while the unwanted section is discarded, allowing new space for other uses.

Residential Demolition.

We routinely perform residential demolition and removal. We have removed thousands of houses ranging from single-family dwellings to an entire city block and urban renewal projects in the mid-South area.

Industrial Demolition and Plant Dismantlement.

Our expertise is not limited to structural demolition and removal. We know dismantlement and removal of industrial plant facilities. Heavy industrial equipment can be removed, dismantled or relocated so it can be reused elsewhere.
