infrastructure Demolition SOLUTIONS

We do more than just demolish buildings; we're experts at raising the bar for infrastructure removal. With our broad knowledge and a variety of demolition methods, our teams excel in various tasks, from taking apart specific parts to tearing down entire structures like bridges, water treatment plants, wastewater treatment plants, rail, and transit lines.

At YORK1, we understand that infrastructure demolition is more than mere deconstruction; it's a symphony of strategic planning, expertise, safety, and environmental responsibility. As Canada evolves and reshapes its landscapes, YORK1 paves the way for new developments.


Our skilled professionals, who are well-versed in operating state-of-the-art machinery, prioritize safety and environmental concerns in every demolition project. We take pride in setting the standard for responsible industry practices, placing a strong emphasis on reducing waste and promoting sustainability. We continuously strive to stay at the forefront of our field.

projects we've worked on

  • Ogden Avenue Pedestrian Bridge
  • Ashbridges Bay Water Treatment Plant
  • Davenport Diamond
  • Metrolinx
  • Gardiner Expressway
  • Canpa Spur
  • Western Beaches Tunnel Rehabilitation 
  • Crosslinx TTC Eglinton Station

At each of these sites, we created custom proposals and plans for demolition projects to ensure all environmental aspects were handled appropriately, the team was fully trained for all aspects, and all the materials were disposed of in an environmentally friendly way. Each infrastructure demolition site was different, and we approached each new project with ideas and processes to ensure it was as efficient as possible.

Bridge night

Ogden AVENUE Pedestrian Bridge

Dismantled in 8 Hours! The removal of the Ogden Avenue Pedestrian Bridge was accomplished within a mere 8 hours, adhering to the predetermined timeline. This bridge extended over 11 lanes, incorporating 6 lanes of the QEW, and the bridge spanned one of North America's busiest highways. Excavators equipped with shears, hammers, buckets, grapples, rock trucks, and loaders were deployed during the nighttime operations, contributing to the successful completion of this project phase.

The Ashbridges Bay Wastewater Treatment Plant is the city of Toronto's main sewage treatment facility, and the second largest such plant in Canada. One of four plants that service the city of Toronto, it treats the wastewater produced by some 1.4 million of the city's residents and has a rated capacity of 818,000 cubic metres per day. We were involved in abatement, demolition and site grading services for Block A & Block B.



YORK1 proudly played a role in The Exhibition Station early works project, a pioneering endeavor in the transportation sector. This monumental undertaking included not only the construction of a 15.6-kilometer subway line with 15 innovative stations, reshaping urban transit, but also the successful demolition of a commercial/industrial building, including tunnels.
