Concrete bursting is a quiet and efficient method of controlled demolition used to remove large concrete structures such as foundations, pillars, bearers and concrete walls.

Holes are drilled in the concrete structure and the burster head is inserted. Hydraulic pressure is provided by a motor, powered by electricity, diesel or petrol power pack. Hydraulic pressure forces a piston from the burster head which induces cracks in the concrete due to lateral forces applied against the inside of the holes.  The cracking follows a path of weakness created by the holes that were drilled previously. The process is repeated until the whole structure is fractured into smaller sections and ready for removal
