Our Team

Great Southern Demolition, Inc. was started in 1996 by Emile “Red” Barnes. After seeing a clear need for developing a higher standard in the Demolition industry, Red began developing new standards for everything from job site safety, to cleanup policy, to proper demolition technique.


Years later, Great Southern Demolition has become the company of choice for many of the southeast’s top contractors and construction companies. By utilizing our proven techniques, expert staff, and hard to acquire demolition equipment, Great Southern Demolition has become the company to call in all cases dealing with demolition and cleanup, concrete sawing and core drilling, and even large machinery dismantling and removal.

Great Southern Demolition takes pride in its ability to quickly remove everything from a single wall to an entire building while leaving nothing behind but a clean ready-to-go work area and room for the future.
