The Yearbook has landed…

The Demolition magazine Yearbook/Directory is available to read NOW!

It has been our most ambitious publication to date. Three months in the making, 120 pages long, a comprehensive directory and a circulation of more than 100,000 in the UK and overseas. But the Demolition magazine Yearbook and Directory has finally arrived.

Paper copies should be landing on desks shortly (if they haven’t already) and the electronic version has already been sent to more than 55,000 UK named construction professionals to provide them with an invaluable resource.

And you can read it below:

Glasgow calls time on oldest bar…

Glasgow’s Old College Bar faces the axe ahead of student accommodation plans.

Plans to demolish one of Glasgow’s oldest buildings for a towering student flat development have been submitted to Glasgow City Council.

If the proposal goes ahead, the 12-storey, 426-bed flat complex will replace the Old College Bar, said to be the oldest pub in Glasgow.

The High Street pub building dates back to the early 1800s, although the foundations are older – in fact, there are references to a building on the same as far back as the late 1500s, and historian Diana Connell submitted a note on the planning application on January 11 stating that the building’s sub structure “probably dates to about 1470”.

Despite its history, the Old College Bar remains unlisted – although the planning application, submitted in December, notes that it is within a conservation area.

The renowned photographer passed peacefully at his home on Friday, the photographic agency he worked with said.

Buckingham Palace said the Queen had been informed, but did not comment further.

The photographer, born Anthony Armstrong-Jones, died peacefully at his home on Friday, said Camera Press.

Lord Snowdon was named as the National Federation of Demolition Contractors first-ever Patron in 2006.

A former student of architecture and designer of the famous aviary at London Zoo, Lord Snowdon’s connection with the NFDC dates back around many years. Having received several large donations to his The Snowdon Award Scheme charity from the NFDC’s London Marathon sponsorship team over the years, he has become a keen supporter of the Federation’s mission to improve working conditions and safety within the UK demolition industry.

“Lord Snowdon has been a friend to the NFDC for many years and it is fitting that he should be named as the Federation’s very first Patron,” said NFDC President David Clarke at the time. “He has taken a keen interest in our activities and, like the NFDC, is a vocal advocate for the need to improve safety and training standards in the demolition sector. We are delighted that he has accepted this position.”

Video – Crew swallows Pepsi building…

Demolition film featuring some of the hottest drone shots we’ve seen this year.

We all know by now that drones provide the ability to capture the demolition process like never before. Hell, there is a drone sat by my feet as I type this (even though I haven’t a clue how to fly it).

But rarely do you see a demolition drone being used to such dramatic effect as in this great new film featuring Trifecta Services Company of North Carolins during the demolition of a former Pepsi Cola building in Charlotte:

Video – Boston building collapses during demolition…

Three storey block pierces neighbouring property with residents inside.

An empty three-story apartment building on Newbury Street in Lawrence collapsed Wednesday as it was being demolished, tilting onto an occupied apartment building next door.

Residents of the adjacent building, which had six units housing about 15 people, were evacuated and will not be allowed to return for at least a day pending an inspection, Fire Chief Brian Moriarty said. Damage to the building appeared to be minor.

Demolition of the condemned building resumed about 90 minutes after the collapse.

The building had been empty for a decade except for homeless people who occasionally moved in, residents of the neighborhood said.

The city had condemned the structure and ordered it demolished but the landlord resisted, forcing the city to seek a court order allowing the demolition.

Video – A damper on demolition…

Rain hampers California bridge demolition.

Weather placed a damper on the demolition of the old Antlers Bridge in Lakehead Tuesday. Around 1,300 charges were set in five sections but several of them did not ignite due to the rain according to local news reports.

Most of the bridge, which was built in 1941, was brought down within seconds of the explosions.

It’s competition time…again

Check out our latest Vlog for your chance to win some industry-related goodies.

I am too old and too set in my ways to concern myself with New Year’s Resolutions. Besides, I don’t drink and I don’t smoke so there’s not a whole heap that I can give up anyway.

But this year I decided to set myself a goal of learning how to use iMovies video editing software to allow us to bring you even more (and hopefully better) video content “on the fly”. And to do that, I have set myself a goal of producing a one minute video each day for the whole of January.

Now I don’t want to clog up your news feed with my idle ramblings (you can check out the videos on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram if they sound like your kind of thing) but – as this one offers you the chance to snag a belated Christmas present for yourself, I thought I would make an exception.

So check out the video below, and good luck.

Video – It’s Christmas time…

…there’s no need to be afraid.

While most of us Brits were tucked up in nice warm houses, eating and drinking too much, and attempting to make small talk with family members we see only at Christmas, weddings or funerals, the crews at Clarke Demolition Company were hard at work (any excuse to duck the Queen’s Speech!) over the festive period.

The resurgent company has produced a video showing the various works it carried out over the Christmas break – And we’re only too pleased to share it with you:

Video – Quake hit car park coming down…

Crews begin demolition of New Zealand car park undermined by recent quake.

Demolition of the Reading carpark in Wellington, New Zealand is underway.

The carpark was significantly damaged in the 14 November earthquake to the point that it’s not safe for anyone to enter and therefore has to be demolished.

Reading International, the building owner, says the demolition is due to take through to the end of March to complete to ground level.
