Precision blast fells former bank building in South Africa.
Jet Demolition successfully imploded the fire-damaged Bank of Lisbon building in Johannesburg CBD yesterday.
Standing at 108 metres tall and within less than eight metres of its neaest neighbour, the contract qualified as one of the most technically demanding projects Jet Demolition has ever undertaken.
It took 894 kg of explosives, and approximately eight seconds to safely bring this giant down. The blast managed to place the structure within its’ own basement, on a bias due to space restrictions, with no overspill on an incredibly dense site.
