Video – Grimsby skyline changing…

Time-lapse video captures demolition of massive tower block.

The changing face of Grimsby skyline has been captured in a remarkable time-lapse video. (Fast forward to the six minute mark for the high reach action)

Dominating the East Marsh skyline for over 50 years, the video captures huge specialist demolition machines dismantling Nelson House – the first of six concrete structures to be deconstructed.

Birmingham-based specialists DSM Demolition Ltd are disassembling the blocks from the top down minimising disruption to local people and businesses.

The ultra high-reach machine is expected to be visible from across the town for months as they continue to dismantle the blocks in a safe and efficient manner. It is estimated to take three weeks to demolish each tower.
