Cost, Safety and the Environment

Safety and the environmentThere are many cost, safety and environmental benefits to relocating a structure as opposed to demolition and reconstruction.

  • The cost of relocating an average sized brick home is approximately 60% of the cost of construction of a similar replacement home.
  • The cost of relocating an average sized stone home is approximately 35% of the cost of construction of a new stone home.
  • Relocating an average home can usually be achieved in less than a month, which is far less than the time taken to construct a new home.
  • Raising a masonry home and building underneath is more cost effective than building a new masonry storey above the existing building.
  • Moving extremely large or heavy pre-assembled equipment to a worksite can result in significant labour saving costs.
  • As the original building is not demolished, hazardous materials such as asbestos, arsenic and lead based paints are not exposed.
  • Moving instead of demolishing result in a significant reduction in landfill, with consequent environmental benefits.
