Dallas downtown detonated…

CDI chalks up yet another successful implosion.

A controlled blast felled an 13-storey tower block in downtown Dallas this past weekend.

The implosion at 505 N. Ervay St. was set off shortly after 7:30 am. Within seconds, a series of controlled explosions reduced the vacant 1946 office building to a heap of concrete and steel as the crowd whooped. A huge column of dust rose into the air and settled to coat the surrounding blocks.

Controlled Demolition, Inc. (CDI), acting as explosives subcontractor to Dallas Demolition, carried out the explosive demolition work.
