Video – Clearing the way for a giant…

Time-lapse captures preparatory works ahead of New York skyscraper.

New York has no shortage when it comes to skyscrapers. But by 2020, the city will boast yet another as the 427 metre One Vanderbilt will have taken its place alongside Grand Central Terminal.

Upon completion, the 57-storey, 150,000 square metre skyscraper will be the second tallest in the city.

But before then, demolition contractors are busily making space for the block, as this time-lapse video illustrates:

Video – A drone in Paradise…

Fly-through captures DSM hard at work in native Birmingham.

A few months ago, we were fortunate enough to be invited to the Paradise development where DSM was reshaping a key part of the UK’s second city. That visit became part of our first-ever edition of Demolition TV.

Now, a drone pilot has taken a fly-bast the site to capture the latest in the ongoing demolition works.

Video – Bay Bridge blasted…again

Underwater blast removes another concrete pier.

Caltrans continued with the removal of the original east span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge on Saturday by imploding Pier E5 of the Old Bay Bridge.

Pier E5 was imploded with 8,000 pounds of explosives and done in less than three seconds. Caltrans says this method reduces the environmental impact and costs to taxpayers.

Video – Georgia peach…

Text-book implosion fells one of world’s tallest chimneys.

With a height of 305 metres (1,001 feet), the GA Power Harllee Branch Plant ranked as one of the tallest chimneys in the world.

But the stack came down this weekend in a text-book blast that landed the mammoth structure precisely in the drop zone as crowds looked on.

Video – Broadway Bridge finally succumbs…

Bridge that withstood blast pulled down.

A barge-mounted crane finally finished what a team of explosive engineers couldn’t; and sent the near 100-year old Broadway Bridge into the water.

As we reported a few days ago, an implosion did a pretty good job of kicking the paint off the Arkansas bridge whilst applying a liberal helping of egg to the faces of the demolition crew. But like all good demolitions, there was a contingency plan in place and the bridge finally came down.

Georgia stack gets indefinite reprieve…

No implosion date following delays caused by Hurricane Matthew.

The historic smoke stack at the now-defunct Georgia Power Company Plant Harlee Branch at Lake Sinclair in Putnam County has been given a little longer to stand, thanks in part to Hurricane Matthew.

The smoke stack, which stands 1,002 feet, and is regarded as the seventh tallest smoke chimney in the world, was scheduled to have come down this past weekend. But the hurricane that wreaked havoc all along the Georgia coast and caused millions in damages resulted in officials postponing the demolition of the smoke stack twice.

Georgia Power officials had first said the plant’s smoke stack would come down on Saturday. But when the hurricane began drawing closer to the state’s coast, they postponed the event and rescheduled it for Sunday.

As it turned out, it didn’t happen then, either.

Now Georgia Power officials don’t actually know when the smoke stack will be taken down.

“There is no rescheduled date at this time,” said Georgia Power spokesman John Kraft.

Breaking News – Coleman loses Didcot contract…

RWE NPower ends contract amidst ongoing investigation.

Breaking NewsThe demolition company working at the site of a collapse at Didcot Power Station has lost its contract, according to the BBC.

Operator RWE NPower said it was ending the demolition contract due to an ongoing investigation into the boiler house collapse in February that claimed the lives of Ken Cresswell, John Shaw, Michael Collings and Christopher Huxtable.

Coleman & Company, which had been working at the site for two years before the accident, agreed it was in the “best interests of all parties”.

In a statement, Coleman & Company said: “We will not be continuing with the remaining demolition and site clearance work at Didcot A Power Station. We agreed with site owners RWE, that this is in the best interests of all parties. We would like to thank RWE for their support over the last two years. All staff working at Didcot will be redeployed across the company, on to other major projects.”

The cause of the collapse is being investigated jointly by police and the Health and Safety Executive.

Maylarch man is Africa bound…

Nick Williamson and his daughter target cross-Continent cycle ride.

maylarchMost people spend their well-earned holiday allowance on a week in the sun, relaxing by a pool, cocktail in hand. Nick Williamson of Maylarch is not most people.

In November, Williamson and his 16-year old daughter Eve will be embarking on a 500 km bike ride across the hot, dusty and somewhat deserted roads and paths in Africa to help raise money for

Their journey starts in Cape Coast and they then have six days of cycling to cover the 500 km around the coast of Ghana to the finish line at Hohoe. Williamson completed a similar challenge a few years ago with one of his other daughters; but this epic journey is going to be an eye-opening and challenging trip for Eve who is undertaking a mammoth challenge for the first time.

Every penny will help Nick and Eve pedal a little bit further and a little bit faster in the knowledge that the money donated will help to carry on performing the great work they do in helping children across the world.
