St. Petersburg Demolition Contractors

Our parent organization, ​PAW Companies was founded in 1983.  PAW Demolition was a natural by-product of our early trucking and transport roots.  The word got out about our professional, customer-focused services and we began the journey to invest time and energy to develop our demolition division, born out of an unmet need of commercial and industrial services here in St. Petersburg and the Greater Tampa Bay area.

“I wanted to take this opportunity to commend your efforts in the demolition portion of our project at the Progress Energy Anclote Power Station here in Florida. I can truly say that all parties involved were impressed with the professionalism and attention to detail you and your crew exhibited during this project. Your safety record during this project was flawless. That in itself was a testament to the planning you put into this job. The task was very difficult, we had a high profile client, and without any previous structures of this kind ever being demolished to study, you approached the work professionally and with unparalleled dedication. This was the first time a structure of this kind was demolished in this manner and you performed the task ahead of schedule, with minimal damage to surrounding structures and kept a safe work environment for your crew. You are to be commended. We are all looking forward to next year when we can start on the second tower replacement. Thank You again, PAW Demolition, for a job well done and again, we are looking forward to doing it all over again next year!” – Donald R. Wilson, GEA Project Manager, GEA Power Cooling, Inc.
