Video – DSM books in at Central Library…

Work starts on Birmingham’s famous John Madlin’s library.

A high reach excavator from Birmingham-based demolition giant DSM took its first bite out of the city’s Central Library today as part of the £500 million Paradise project.

Major clearance work starts today to tear down John Madin’s Central Library in Birmingham two and half years after it closed.

Strip out work started earlier this year and demolition has already begun on the ground floor and Paradise Forum retail parade (see picture below) which has been closed since the start of November.
