Read ’em and keep…

The all-new Demolition magazine had landed.

The brand-new edition of the Demolition magazine – the largest, most popular and most widely-read publication for the demolition industry – has arrived. And the electronic edition is free to read right now.

It’s another 100-page monster of a magazine so there is plenty within to suit all tastes. Check it out below:

Didcot – Two Years On…

Today marks the second anniversary of the UK demolition industry’s deadliest disaster in living memory.

To commemorate the four men killed in the boiler house collapse on 23 February 2016, we have produced this special one-off and extended edition of the Demolition News Radio podcast:

Breaking News – Crowning Achievement…

David Sinclair appointed director of the National Demolition Association.

Industry veteran and one of the demolition sector’s most decorated individuals David Sinclair has been appointed onto the National Demolition Association’s board of directors. The news came as the National Demolition Association hosts its annual convention in Austin, Texas.

It is another incredible achievement for the Scot who has enjoyed a successful demolition career on both sides of the Atlantic and who now surely holds a record for the greatest number of accolades this industry has bestowed upon a single person.

Sinclair is Honorary Life Vice President of the National Federation of Demolition Contractors, Honorary Life Vice President of the European Demolition Association, a Fellow of the Institute of Demolition Engineers and a Member of European Federation of Explosives Engineers. Back in 2011, he was also appointed as Demolition Engineer to the United Nations.

In his new role, Sinclair will join fellow NDA Directors in furthering the aims and objectives of the NDA in promoting Education and Professionalism in the US demolition industry.

Video – The drone as banksman…

How AMPCO is using a drone to provide a new perspective.

Drones are not unusual on demolition sites. They’re widely used to carry our surveys of inaccessible parts of the site or a specific structure. They’re employed to provide clients with a greater understanding of the specific challenges facing the demolition crew. And they’re used to produce some truly stunning progress photos and promotional videos.

But check out this video from the guys at AMPCO Contracting which is deploying drones as a go-anywhere support banksman/spotter:

Video – Amateurs at work…

Stand well back; this is NOT going to end well.

YouTube, it seems, is filled to the rafters with video footage of demolition being done poorly, unprofessionally or unsafely. Doe that mean that the watching world has a morbid fascination with demolition going awry; or is this merely a sad indictment of the sheer volume of sub-par demolition taking place around the world?

Either way, we have a new film for you:

Video – Blowtorch blamed as fire engulfs Sydney site…

Exploding gas bottles force evacuation of site.

An explosive fire that sent “fireballs” flying and plumes of toxic black smoke into the sky was caused by a worker’s blowtorch, which caused gas bottles to explode and forced the evacuation of the site.

The Circular Quay inferno, which sent plumes of toxic black smoke and caused “fireballs” to fall from the sky, raged through a 10-storey building on a demolition site at about 8.45am. Fire & Rescue NSW extinguished the fire just before 12pm, but it still caused huge delays all day for commuters.

Now, fire investigators have tracked the cause of the blaze to one of the construction workers’ oxyacetylene blowtorches, according to a Fire and Rescue NSW spokesman.

Misleading report attracts scrutiny..

Council report recommending demolition of 26 Dundee flats was “seriously misleading”.

Former housing convener Jimmy Black and West End Community Council leader Peter Menzies are calling for a rethink on plans to demolish a housing block to make way for affordable homes.

A report, submitted to the Neighbourhood Services committee in October, claimed that a majority of “residents” favoured demolition of the blocks at 219-245 Blackness Road.

However, a freedom of information request (FOI) has revealed that six private landlords who do not live there were counted as “residents”.

Private tenants’ views were not counted at all. Mr Black, who made the FOI request, said: “The report was simply wrong and gave the impression a large majority of the people who live in the blocks were happy to see them destroyed.

“Eight of the flats are privately rented, and we don’t know what those tenants thought because their views were not considered. The FOI response shows that eight of the flats are privately rented. That means private landlords will walk away from their problems with £640,000 of council tax payers’ money.”

Eight people voted in favour of refurbishing the flats and 14 in favour of demolition — but of those 14, six were private landlords and three were owner occupiers.

PlantworX looks East…

Equipment show to relocate in 2019.

The Construction Equipment Association (CEA) has announced the venue and dates for their next PLANTWORX trade show. It will be held at the East of England Arena and Events Centre, Peterborough from 11 to 13 June 2019.

The last two events were held at the Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground, near Lutterworth. PLANTWORX 2017 attracted 400 exhibitors and an attendance of c.13,000. The East of England venue is a permanent exhibition centre which has hosted other ‘big machine’ events such as LAMMA (for agricultural equipment) and Truckfest.

The PLANTWORX directors conducted an extensive search for a new site based on criteria which were set on the basis of exhibitor feedback. These included good road and rail links, easy site access and improved on site services. East of England has permanent indoor and outdoor exhibition facilities and areas for machine demonstration. PLANTWORX 2019 will occupy a gross area of approximately 200,000 sqm, c.40% more than 2017.

CEA chief executive, Rob Oliver said, “The last PLANTWORX show was blighted by the weather, so we were looking for somewhere that would provide a good opportunity for a better exhibitor and visitor experience whatever the weather. Inside exhibitors can be accommodated in the purpose-built Arena and outside there are more permanent roadways and facilities for visitors. Good mobile phone and wi fi facilities are also part of the package – plus it is just 5 minutes from the A1. We took our time making the selection, but we are confident that we have found the best solution and we have an option for at least two further events at East of England Arena.”

He added, “We are also taking the opportunity to add more resource to our organising team and will be announcing some major new initiatives in the coming weeks.”

PLANTWORX sales manager, Angela Spink, commented, “I am excited by the potential of the new venue. We will be working with exhibitors, via our consultation groups, to test our site layout ideas and making sure we can deliver a top-notch event on behalf of our industry.”
