control demeter was the country’s first green company and we continue to be so. Our services include turnkey projects, project management, project design, works management, licence management, demolition using the deconstruction system, treatment of inert, common and special waste, impacted earth management and carrying out formalities with the Agència Catalana de Residus (Catalan Waste Agency).
control demeter has performed over 3,500 demolitions by means of traditional mechanical systems and using explosives, and over 2,500 demolitions using the deconstruction system, meaning a total of over 6,000 demolitions. The setting up of the first recycling plant of the Spanish State in Barcelona meant that 1,520,00 Tn were recycled and used as the sub-base material for the urban layout of the Olympic Village.
In 1980, the thermal lance was used for special works.
Backhoe loaders with chains fitted with a height adjustable arm and shears to cut reinforced concrete and metal structures were used for the first time in the Barcelona Olympic Village demolitions in 1992.
In 2002, control demeter designed Europe’s most innovative deconstruction project, the work of control demeter and the French-German Institute for Environmental Research at Karlsruhe University, to deconstruct the building located at Paseode Gracia, 82in Barcelona.
In 2003, the FAD (Foment de les Arts Decoratives) awarded the demeter technical team an honourable mention (highest award for architecture) “for its longstanding dedication to the world of deconstruction, with extensive experience nationally and internationally, and for its contribution of innovations in the sector, along with its installation of the country’s first waste management and recycling plant”.
We used the ultrafast integral ignition system to demolish the 18-storey buildings of the La Pau Neighbourhood, which had a major impact both in terms of safety and the speed of the operation.
