Turbine hall laid to rest in balletic and subtle fashion. The turbine hall at Munmorrah Power Station could have gone out with a flash and a crash and a bang. But award-winning Australian demolition giant Liberty Industrial instead chose to drop the stripped structure with considerably less fuss. The result was not less impressive, however: […]

Section of Scranton Bridge collapses onto carriageway below. Demolition of the old Scranton Bridge was scheduled to take one to two days; in the end, it took just a matter of seconds as a section collapsed almost immediately as demolition began. PennDOT shut down the Central Scranton Expressway several hours before the bridge demolition began. […]

NFDC agrees to promote from within rather than reinstating president. The National Council of the National Federation of Demolition Contractors predictably has chosen to promote from within rather than reinstate ousted president Paul Brown or to welcome “stalking horse” entrant and former NFDC Convention Chairman Patrick Williamson. Instead, presidential responsibilities will fall to vice president […]

Implosion fells disused sugar crane. Beauty, it appears, is very much in the eye of the beholder. Because when Tristan Rakowski of Rakowski Cartage & Wrecking sent us the video below, he largely dismissed it as “nothing large but fun to watch”. We beg to differ. Check out this awesome multi-angle film that captures the […]

Superb drone work captures raceway tower destruction. It has stood sentry over the ISM Raceway (Formerly Phoenix Raceway) in Arizona for many years. But, as this short but superb video shows, that era is over as the tower was felled safely this weekend.
