Video – Earl’s Court eviscerated…

Time-lapse captures precision demolition of former exhibition and concert venue.

For anyone that attended the Ideal Home Exhibition, the London Boat Show, Crufts Dog Show (before it relocated) and for generations of concert-goers (I saw the late, great George Michael there as recently as 2012), Earl’s Court exhibition centre was the go-to destination. But amidst lengthy and vocal protests from local residents, the exhibition centre is no more.

UK demolition giant Keltbray carried out the demolition works, as this pair of vides shows:

Shell submits Brent decommissioning plans…

End of oil production could provide massive windfall for UK demolition sector.

Royal Dutch Shell has submitted a plan to the British government for dismantling its Brent North Sea production platforms, a turning point for the UK oil industry as operators face the huge challenge of gradually abandoning depleted fields after 40 years of production.

Shell lodged the plans for decommissioning production at the huge Brent field, which lends its name to the globally traded benchmark crude oil grade and which has produced over 3 billion barrels of oil equivalent since 1976. The government has in turn invited public responses to Shell’s proposals over the coming 60 days, a longer consultation period than usual because the decommissioning programme is so complex. It will then analyse the feedback and subsequently decide whether to approve the plan.

“Any decommissioning plan will be carefully considered by the government, taking into account environmental, safety and cost implications, the impact on other users of the sea and a public consultation,” a spokesman for the government’s department of business, energy and industrial strategy said.

Shell will start the programme this year by removing the 24,200 tonne topside of the Brent Delta platform, a process which was already approved two years ago. following Delta’s cessation of production in 2011.

Companies operating in UK waters need to dismantle around 7,500 kilometres of pipelines and more than 100 platforms at an estimated cost of £17.6 billion by 2025, according to industry body Oil & Gas UK.

Probe launched into major wall collapse…

50 metre wall collapses on Daltons Demolition site in Leith.

A supermarket chain has launched an investigation after a wall collapsed during work on a new branch – sparking a major gas scare.

Dozens of residents had to be evacuated after nearly 30 tonnes of rubble came crashing down towards flats on St Clair Place, rupturing a pipe.

Fire crews from McDonald Road and Marionville Road arrived on the scene at approximately 2pm on Saturday and evacuated the 16 flats amid fears of a major gas leak.

A new Lidl is being built off Easter Road backing on to Easter Cemetery, replacing the old B&Q.

The 50m wall collapsed towards the flats, destroying the garden. It also ripped out the window of a ground-floor flat.

Ken Carlyle, a project manager and owner of one of the flats, said it was fortunate no-one was killed. “The garden is regularly used and is a drying green,” he says. “It is pure luck that nobody was injured or killed.”

A Lidl spokesperson confirmed a probe was under way, adding “we are investigating into this matter and how this could have happened.

“We have been working with Daltons Demolition to ascertain the cause of this incident and will let you know once this investigation has been completed. We are happy to report that nobody was injured in this incident.”

Demolition TV is back on your screens.

The wait and the anticipation is over. After a festive absence, Demolition TV is back; and it’s bigger, bolder and better than ever.

We could waffle on for hours about the fact that it’s shot in cinema-quality 4K; that it now follows a “vlog” style to provide viewers with a greater feel for what is on screen; or that it features never-before-seen footage from behind the scenes of an international press conference hosted by JCB.

But how about you just watch it…?

Welcome to Demolition World…

New Zealand Couple turns salvage yard into tourist attraction.

Part salvage yard, part ghost town, part scruffy Westworld, this eccentric “village” springs from one couple’s fascination with stuff, and their wish to take fellow treasure hunters on a journey through shared imagination.

Demolition World is an extension of David and Lee Fallow’s family scrap business. Their collection, curated and staged as a mysterious small town, comes from years of buying and selling salvage, building demo, rescuing and recycling old structures, and scooping up stock overruns.

Beginning in 2003, they hit on an eerily charming way for customers to peruse it all, by elaborately set decorating their little corner of southern New Zealand.

The familiar and the exotic create a carefully assembled community here, including an entirely rebuilt church (where a bride with golden ringlets is left at the altar), a pioneer kitchen, a toy shop, an imaginary medical and dental clinic (best to leave that one to the imaginary health department), and a medieval banquet attended by utterly bored metallic mannequins.
