About Us

Our People

Wrecking Ball Demolition was established in 1998 by members of the longstanding Newland Construction family. It was born out of a need to provide quality demolition work in the Puget Sound region. In 2005 Sam Newland took Wrecking Ball out from under the umbrella of Newland Construction and branched out on his own. The next nine years were spent developing a solid client base and an outstanding team to support them. 2014 saw the advent of "Wrecking Ball 2.0" which added the comprehensive in-house training and safety program, and created the new company slogan "Cleaner. Safer. Faster." Our team is dedicated to making sure that your project is completed effectively and efficiently. Because we come from a general contracting background we understand the ins and outs of daily management of a true construction project. We enlist the latest communication technology to stay on top of your project and its successful completion.

"As always I like to let staff know of the working relationships and quality of work completed by our subcontractors.

  • Wrecking Ball had two phase of work in their scope, asbestos abatement and Demo of structures.
  • Asbestos abatement endured some additional work as we found more asbestos the original report.
  • Work was completed in an orderly fashion, crew was well versed and completed tasks, keeping us informed of completion dates and removal status. The lead man did an excellent job.
  • The demo work was completed in an orderly fashion, Wrecking Ball also allowed us the flexibility of providing City of Redmond Fire Department the opportunity to utilize the structure for fire drills allowing Redmond FD, Kirkland FD, Bellevue FD and Woodinville FD to train without interrupting our scopes of work or schedule. Greg was our foreman and performed their work safely and efficiently hutting our target date while also incurring additional work at the old church location as well as capping utilities. Communication with on site and office staff was excellent. COR was very satisfied with traffic/dust control during duration of scope. Greg did an excellent job keeping us in the loop and performing task.

Overall, very satisfied with workmanship and cooperation throughout the scope of work, would not hesitate recommending Wrecking Ball in the future for additional work!" Pat McCabe, Compass General Contractor
