Once I have applied for the permit, when can I expect to receive my permit?
A: Typically, as long as you have a plot plan and proof that disconnects (water, gas, & power) have been done, you can obtain a permit the same day. If you are re-building, this process can take several weeks, as the city has to approve the new building plans to ensure they meet the requirements and bylaws of your neighborhood.

Who do I call to have my disconnects done?
A: Atco Gas: 780-420-7211 and EPCOR: 311/ 1-800-242-3447 It is also necessary to contact Alberta 1st call if a basement is being dug on the property. B&B Demolition can assist in the scheduling of this service. Note: You may not realize that gas, water, and electricity cannot simply be turned off and ripped out. Utilities need to be properly disconnected and abandoned or terminated at the source. Your local fire department and utility companies may want to inspect and sign-off before work can proceed.

Does my house need to be inspected for asbestos in order to obtain a demolition permit?
A: Yes. Upon a site visit, our qualified estimator will do a walkthrough of the home and surrounding structures. The estimator will identify any areas of concern. At this time, you may ask questions regarding any particular areas of concern and we will access the need for asbestos removal. When you apply for the demolition permit, the city will ask you to sign off on a document stating that the building is asbestos free. Upon request, our company can also provide you with a letter to certify that the site is asbestos free.

After awarding B&B Demolition the project, when can I expect work to begin?
A: One of our Project Managers will contact you to discuss your timeline and ensure all proper permits are in place. At that time, an appropriate date will be set.

How many days does it take to complete a project?
A: One day to demolish an average 1500 sq ft home. One day to dig an average 1500 sq ft basement. One day to install services (within 80 ft). This can vary in timeline depending on weather, and site conditions.

When will I need a surveyor on site for basement dig and services?
A: We always require a surveyor on site after the structure has been demolished. The survey has to be complete before we can begin excavating. Our project manager will advise you to the specific time you should book the surveyor.

What additional costs should the homeowner be aware of?
A: The removal of dirt from a basement dig is an additional trucking and skid steer charge (if required). The cost for dirt removal from a basement dig may vary depending on the size of basement desired.

Is backfill included in my quote from B&B Demolition?
A: Yes, if the homeowner specifies that a backfill is required at the original site visit with our estimator. Once the foundation has been poured, a skid steer will be scheduled to return to your site and backfill the basement walls with the material left on site from the original dig.

Can B&B Demolition remove the trees on my property?
A: Yes, if the homeowner specifies that tree removal is required at the original side visit with our estimator. B&B can remove trees from the property if they are cut to an appropriate height (15-20 ft), stumps included. This cost will be assessed in the original quote.
