Metropolitan Demolitions Group provides demolition and civil services to the Sydney CBD and the Greater NSW region. The Group also operates a Construction and Demolition Waste Recycling Facility that receives waste from our projects and from the public. Our recycling facility has processed material into quality road base material and aggregates that have been supplied to many major projects in New South Wales.
Metropolitan Demolitions has become a respected name in the Australian construction industry, recognised for our ability to meet the needs of clients and provide quality service and products while upholding high standards of personal and environmental safety.
Our commitment to excellence in demolition and recycling practices has seen us become a leader in best practice demolition management and led us to a record of continuous growth. The Group is now one of the largest demolition and recycling contractors in New South Wales and holds a substantial market share in its sector.
The Metropolitan Demolitions Group started as a small demolition subcontractor operating in Sydney in 1972 under the name of Kouris and Peros Pty Ltd with Paul and Norm Giannikouris and their brother-in-law Nick Peros as company directors.
Emmanuel and Chris Giannikouris joined the company in the mid 80’s and together they set in place a business foundation based on the reliable delivery of product and service to clients. Their combined efforts to deliver on their promise and their willingness to develop innovative solutions to better meet their clients needs enhanced the company’s reputation as a leading demolition contractor in Sydney.
The company expanded its operations from the demolition of residential properties to the demolition of commercial buildings and industrial sites across Sydney’s metropolitan region.
As the company pursued change and growth in these key areas then Managing Director, Paul Giannikouris, decided to change the company’s name to Metropolitan Demolitions Pty Ltd as a reflection of the company’s transformation. The new Board of Metropolitan Demolitions Pty Ltd had Paul, Norm, Emmanuel and Chris Giannikouris and Nick Peros as its directors.
In 1991 we purchased the first of two Lokotrack LT100R mobile concrete crushers. This heralded our new approach to demolition with the recycling of concrete on site and saw the beginning of Metropolitan Demolitions and Recycling Pty Ltd.
“It takes discipline, mission oriented strategy, adaptability and decisiveness to succeed. We are committed to acting as leaders in all facets of our industry, including technical expertise, health and safety, quality of service and human resources. Our focus is on creating policies and work practices that produce revolutionary business strategies year after year.
Our people’s talents are appreciated and their skills are utilised. We are constantly redefining our relationship with our employees.
