DemolitionNews
No information on the well-being of the operator; but this is not for the squeamish. There are times when we genuinely question our decision to present demolition in a warts-and-all fashion and without the filter of rose-coloured spectacles. This is one of those occasions. A tower block falls onto an excavator with a operator inside. […]

Demolition plan leaves cars trapped – and a fish dinner sitting on the kitchen bench. The McDonald family was looking forward to tucking into a nice Thursday night meal of snapper. It might not be so nice by next March. Pete McDonald got a kilogram of snapper and cod out of his freezer on the […]

Administrative delays push back smokestack blast. The skyline of a Berks County borough will remain unchanged for at least a few more days. An implosion of four brick smokestacks in Birdsboro has been postponed because of a paperwork issue with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, officials said.

DemolitionNews
French contractor pulls steel tower to the ground. There’s something about French contractor Cardem and its all-white excavators that just lends it a certain “je ne sais quoi”. And this video of the company pulling down a steel stack merely serves to reinforce that image: Cardem Demolition MoulinVieux from samstudio on Vimeo.
