Video – DSM giant tackles Edgbaston tower…

70-metre Caterpillar high reach shows what it’s made of.

A few months ago, DSM Group’s massive Caterpillar 6015B went to work taking down the 20-storey Edgbaston House tower block.

That demolition is now complete and a time-lapse film of the demolition process has been released that shows the entire demolition process. But it also served as a timely reminde rthat we never got around to broadcasting our film of the massive machine.

So take a look below – First up is our film of possibly the UK demolition scene’s most awesome piece of kit; second is that time-lapse that captures all the action.

December deadline for deadly bridge…

Morandi bridge demolition to start in December; last one month.

90 days on from the disaster in which 43 people were killed, officials have announced a schedule for demolition and rebuilding of Genoa’s infamous Morandi bridge.

Genoa Mayor Marco Bucci announced that the long-awaited demolition of the remaining sections of the Morandi bridge will start on December 15, making way for a new overpass crossing the city.

“My plan foresees the start of the demolition work on December 15,” Bucci, who is also the commissioner for the construction of the new viaduct, told reporters.

The bridge is still a restricted area as investigations continue, but Bucci said “the work will start as soon as the sequestering of the site (by investigators) is lifted.”

The demolition of Genoa’s Morandi Bridge, which killed 43 people when it collapsed, will take just one month from start to finish, the region’s governor previously said.

It was initially hoped that the bridge could be demolished by the end of September. Investigators called for the urgent demolition of the bridge’s remains in August, warning that supports were weakening and at high risk of collapse.

Removal will begin with the west pillar, Bucci said, and construction of the new bridge will begin there as demolition continues on the east side.

Video Exclusive – Rye Demolition in action…

The first film from our new-look YouTube channel.

So it turns out that we have been doing YouTube all wrong. Rather than saving up our content and then hitting you with a 30-minute episode once every six weeks, the video platform would prefer us to broadcast (ideally) weekly. And since they offer creators like us certain privileges when we attract a certain number of views and subscribers, who are we to argue.

And so we have relaunched our YouTube channel with new graphics, new playlists to make it easier to navigate, and a new pledge to upload with far greater frequency; starting with this awesome film we shot with our friends at Rye Demolition at their site in Mill Hill, London.

All-new Demolition mag is HERE!

118 pages of everything you ever wanted to know about demolition but were afraid to ask.

The new Demolition magazine is here, resplendent in a distinctive lime green cover and rammed to the rafters with demolition goodness.

Of course, we’d love for you to take the time and read this behemoth from cover-to-cover at your leisure. But we’d also like to draw your attention to a few key highlights along the way including: the importance of inspecting work at height equipment; a look at the opportunities missed by the UK demolition sector during 2018; a look at the silent killer that is worker fatigue; and an exclusive look around the new European headquarters of ambitious equipment giant, Hyundai.

There is loads more besides. So pour yourself a coffee, kick back and enjoy the latest edition of Demolition magazine:

Video – More big bangs at Longannet…

Another day, another successful Brown and Mason blast.

Power stations across the land must tremble at the very mention of the name Brown and Mason. Because it seems that rarely a week goes past when the company isn’t consigning one of these mammoth plants to the pages of history.

Late last week it was the turn, once again, of Longannet Power Station in Fife, Scotland where the BAM team carried out the controlled implosion of the Unit 2 precips together with the coal stock towers and the associated conveyor.

Safedem achieves notable first…

Safedem by Name, Safe by Nature

Safedem Ltd has become one of the first UK demolition contractors to achieve the new ISO 45001 occupational health and safety standard. The company was independently assessed by the British Standards Institute (BSI) and achieved conformity to the new international standard just three months after its publication.

The primary goal of ISO 45001 is the reduction of occupational injuries and diseases. It is the world’s first International Standard for occupational health and safety, and provides a robust and effective set of processes for improving work safety in global supply chains. ISO 45001 follows the High Level Structure of other ISO standards like ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 which makes integration of these standards much easier

“ISO45001 is designed to help organisations of all sizes and across a broad range of industries. And we believe it is particularly pertinent to the demolition and construction industries,” asserts Safedem managing director William Sinclair. “We are proud to be one the first demolition contractors to achieve compliance to this standard. This accreditation is an appropriate recognition for the commitment to occupational health demonstrated by everyone within Safedem, and it wholly complements our existing ISO9001-2015 & ISO14001-2015 accreditations. We will continue to eliminate risks in the workplace and strive to build a culture where quality, safety, health and the environment underpins the values of all stakeholders in achieving an incident and injury free environment.”

Firm fined over asbestos clean-up…

Contractor fined after using vacuum cleaner on asbestos

A Norwich-based contractor has been fined £90,000 for carrying out unlicensed asbestos cleaning work.

Norwich Magistrates’ Court heard how the company began a project to refurbish parts of Rose Lane Business Centre in Norwich, including a former kitchen and canteen.

Works started in late April 2015 and various phases continued into late October, early November 2015. It was during the later phase when significant exposure to asbestos occurred.

An HSE investigation found the labourers employed by the contractor to carry out demolition works were mostly vulnerable non-English speakers with limited understanding of English, little awareness of asbestos on site and no prior asbestos awareness training.

The investigation also found no demolition and refurbishment asbestos survey had been in place before the project started.

When one was carried out following HSE intervention, it discovered licensed asbestos debris on the ground level within the area the size of a football pitch.

Despite these findings and surveyor’s recommendations, the unlicensed contractor proceeded to clean the debris between 1 October and 6 October 2015, dry sweeping and vacuuming the area with a vacuum cleaner.

Y Construction Ltd of Rose Lane, Norwich was found guilty of breaching asbestos regulations and fined £90,000 with full costs of £7,184.04.
