Seli deploys Bobcats in Milan

Demolishing a building in the centre of Milan, Italy requires specific prerogatives. The work must be carried out with surgical care, without damaging the adjacent buildings and without disturbing the residents, in full compliance with environmental and safety regulations.

This was certainly the case for the interior demolition in a prestigious five-storey building in the heart of Milan. To carry out this delicate work, the contractor, Seli Manutenzioni Generali Srl of Monza, chose to purchase a fleet of five new Bobcat compact machines comprising two E17z mini-excavators, an E10z mini-excavator and two S70 skid-steer loaders. Thanks to their small dimensions and low weights, the three Bobcat mini-excavators, equipped with breakers and other attachments, swiftly dealt with the precision demolition of the floors and other structures to make way for new stairwells and lift shafts. One of the E17z mini-excavators was also used in the top-down mode to demolish the roof to create new floor levels for the building.

The two S70 skid-steer loaders were used to complete the process by handling and removing debris, unloading it into self-tipping bins, which in turn were moved with a crane. The five compact Bobcat machines involved in the work inside the building were able to work comfortably even in the tightest spaces, where bulkier machines would not have been able to manoeuvre properly.

Seli has recently signed an agreement with DMO - the Authorised Dealer for both Bobcat and Doosan for the regions of Emilia Romagna, Veneto, Friuli Venezia Giulia and Lombardy (the provinces for Milan, Cremona, Mantua, Lodi, Pavia, Varese, Monza and Brianza) - as the company’s main supplier for the rental and sale of construction machinery.
