Video – Munmorrah boiler blast…

Liberty Industrial strikes again.

Two of Munmorah Power Station’s boilers were demolished today using controlled explosive demolition techniques.

The boilers are the largest demolished in Australia so far. They also represent the largest explosive demolition undertaken anywhere in Australia to date. Weighing in at 23,000 tonnes and 60 metres in height it is the heaviest structure to be demolished using explosives in Australia.

Contracted to carry out the demolition of the entire power station, specialist contractor Liberty Industrial used a controlled explosion to bring the boilers down. Following the successful demolition of the chimney stacks in March, the blast is the second of three explosive demolition events to be carried out during the course of the power station’s removal.

The demolition of the 60 metre high, 23,000 tonne boiler house was achieved utilising an engineered induced collapse technique. The process involves a carefully designed and calculated sequence of structural pre-weakening followed by the detonation of strategically placed explosives charges to collapse the structure in a predetermined direction. The technique was used to safely reduce the structure to suitable height for mechanical processing.

Liberty Industrial’s giant demolition excavator will be put to work processing the debris. The machine boasts the largest demolition shear anywhere in the world and will make light work of the large steel members associated with the heavy boilers.

Liberty Industrial Director Simon Gill praised the project team for their efforts. “Another great result for this project. The detailed engineering and meticulous fashion in which these structures were prepared are testament to the calibre of our project team”.
Stephen Saladine, Managing Director of Generator Property Management said “The planning and execution for this activity is a credit to the team. The management of such an event is one that requires many individuals and we’re proud of the progress to-date, for an environmentally friendly outcome.”

One last explosive demolition event is planned for 2017 with the demolition of the remaining boiler house scheduled for September 2017. The removal of the power station is expected to be completed by September 2018.

Video – Chimney collapses on Chinese demolition worker…

Horrific incident caught on camera.

China might have built the world’s largest economy but it still has much to learn about modern health and safety, as this new video proves.

Unfortunately, the country apparently works on the basis that – with a potential workforce of 1 billion people or more – workers are expendable. How else do you explain the working methods shown in this short film.

There is no news at present on the condition of the worker.

Video – Stop the press…

Three months of Tampa Tribune demolition condensed into two minutes.

It’s the end of an era as the Tampa Tribune building is demolished to make way for a new apartment block.

The waterfront property, located on the west side of the Hillsborough River just south of the University of Tampa, was sold to Miami-based Related Group in 2015. The company intends to erect an eight-story, 400-unit apartment complex in its place.

Adamo wins, claims Silver…

Adamo Group selected to demolish Pontiac Silverdome.

The demolition contractor for the Silverdome has been chosen. The Adamo Group, based out of Detroit, will be the contractor to bring down the 80,311-seat abandoned stadium in Pontiac. The confirmation of the selection of the contractor was dated May 10 according to Pontiac Mayor Deirdre Waterman. That’s two days before the deadline outlined by a recent consent agreement between the city of Pontiac and the stadium’s owners, Toronto-based Triple Investment Group, to tear down the Silverdome.

The owners will now have until June 9 to submit specific plans for the demolition to the city.

The consent agreement, from where the deadlines originate, came after the city filed litigation against the Silverdome owners in February. The six complaints alleged violations of building and safety codes, zoning ordinances and the municipal code including the storage of used cars on the property. They were filed about a month after it was found that hundreds of Volkswagen cars, which were bought back by the automaker due to an emissions cheating scandal, were being housed in the parking lot at the Silverdome.

Video – Tennessee twins toppled…

Implosion fells John Sevier Coal Plant stacks.

The John Sevier Fossil Plant’s two smokestacks were brought down with the use of approximately 110 pounds of strategically placed explosives per stack.

The coal burning plant was constructed in 1956 and continued to produce electricity until the new gas plant next door went online in 2012.

“Those stacks are part of the original plant which was built in the 1950s, so they’ve been there for quite some time,” says public relations manager Jom Hopson. “For about the past year and a half we have been in the process of decommissioning the plant, demolishing the components of the old coal plant, and then returning the area to a brownfield development site. The stack demolition that occurred last Saturday was just another milestone in that. It was one of the last of the major components of the plant that were still there.

Video – DSM kicks off at White Hart Lane…

Work starts on demolition of former home of Tottenham Hotspur.

The Tottenham Hotspur team had barely finished their final lap of honour at their former home before the men and machines of DSM were mobilised to begin the demolition of the famous White Hart Lane ground.

The team had just beaten Manchester United (much as West Ham United did in similar circumstances this time last year) to send fans away happy for the final time at this ground.

Tottenham will move to the Wembley Stadium for the 2017.18 season while a new purpose-built ground is erected alongside the former stadium.

Comment – Waste crime on the rise…

Environment Agency chief describes waste crime as “the new narcotics”.

Last week I was lucky enough to be invited to a dedicated Waste and Recycling Event hosted by JCB at its World Headquarters and attended by the great and the good of the waste management sector.

One of the guest speakers was Chris Murphy, deputy CEO of the Chartered Institute of Waste Management (CIWM) who took the opportunity to highlight the growing issue of so-called “waste crime”.
According to Murray, waste crime is costing the UK economy more than £600 million each year. He also stated that while the Environment Agency has managed to close down some 1,000 illegal waste sites, another 1,000 have sprung up in their place. Little wonder then that Environment Agency chief executive Sir James Bevan has described waste crime as “the new narcotics”.

Offences, sometimes involving organised crime gangs, range from the illegal dumping of household and industrial waste to massive frauds involving recycling fees and landfill tax. “With drugs it took a while for the system to catch up and realise the damage drugs were doing. We are clear now about the damage waste crime does to communities and to the economy,” says Bevan. “The strategy is to work with the good guys and really nail the bad guys. As the statistics show we haven’t cracked it yet and it will be a long grind, but we are making progress.”

Admirable indeed. But I can’t help think that the UK Government is now reaping what it sowed during a period of landfill site closures and waste material reclassification and a continued use of Landfill Tax as a cash cow with – apparently – no upper limits. Couple that with a planning system in which local authorities publicly aspire to green credentials but which privately throw endless obstacles in the path of new recycling centres, and it is little wonder that domestic, commercial and industrial waste winds up by the roadside.

Of course, at this point, reputable and professional demolition men (and women) are now throwing up their hands and screaming “not us” at their computer or mobile device screens. And I concur. No demolition company that I know would knowingly send waste materials to an illegal site. But knowingly is a big word; and if you’re working away from your normal territory, how can you tell that the local waste company isn’t diverting your arisings from a licensed landfill and into a farmer’s field in the dead of night?

Aside from the environmental damage being wrought upon this green and pleasant land by the perpetrators of waste crime, the most annoying aspect of all this is that any Environmental Agency clampdowns will penalise the demolition industry; a sector that views waste as its mortal enemy and which sets a global standard in the field of materials recycling, re-use and resale.

Accent on youth…

Leading demolition training provider seeks to attract young people to industry.

Groundwork Nottingham (Group)C&D Consultancy has teamed up with Groundwork Greater Nottingham to deliver specialist courses in asbestos awareness and NVQ Level 1 in Demolition, which gives participating individuals the skills and experience needed to work on any demolition site in the UK.

The two sessions, which are being supported as part of the Big Lottery funded Talent Match programme, targeted 18-24 year-olds who have been out of work, training and education for 12 months and who often suffer from a number of complex barriers.

C&D provided an interactive insight into the dangers of asbestos, as well as some of the basic skills and areas of expertise you will need to pursue for a career in demolition.

“Our sector is crying out for young talent to come through the ranks and this is an ideal opportunity to get people to think about a career in this industry,” says C&D Consultancy founder and managing director John Woodward. “It’s a very exciting arena to be involved in, with lots of new technology being utilised and exciting projects being completed. We have joined forces with Groundwork and Talent Match to deliver these courses in the East Midlands and the first ones will cater for 20 people. If these are successful, we’ll look to hold more.”

“The courses are a greater taster to the world of demolition and, importantly, gives our participants the opportunity to gain employment in a sector that is thriving and full of opportunities,” says Matt Hanrahan, Employment and Enterprising Development Worker at Talent Match. “C&D Consultancy was chosen due to their expertise, track record in this specific industry and the style of their trainers, which gets the best out of people.”

C&D Consultancy was formed by John Woodward in 2003 and has become one of the leading demolition specialists and industrial training providers in the country, coordinating projects across the UK and Europe every year.

A team of 8 experts advise on initial planning, project management and one-off consultancy, whilst up to 10 trainers are delivering more than 450 courses in health & safety and technical expertise every year to nearly 4,700 people.

The company was also part of Talent Match’s mini Employment Fair held in April alongside the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB), D2N2 LEP Joint Investment Strategy Construction Team and a number of local demolition and construction employers.
