MANY buildings which become derelict or vacant still retain a great deal of material which has value.

D-W-W works in partnership with clients to produce an inventory of potential reclaimable material.

We then set about recycling, reclaiming and re-selling whatever materials are appropriate.

In practice, this can be simple interior furnishings - from desks, tables, cabinets and other furniture - to industrial material such as mechanical equipment.

Beyond that, there is the external structure and internal structure itself, which can often yield value, particularly in a steel-framed building for example.

But there are also plastics, PVC windows, wiring and metals which may be salvageable and can add unexpected value to the balance book when it comes to reclaiming a site or demolishing it.

Even if a building, premises or property does not look at first glance as if it would yield much, it will always be worth your while to give D-W-W a call for a free survey and advice on how to dispose of an asset.

It often surprises clients what can be reclaimed and in many cases re-sold, to offset other project costs.
