Two seriously hurt in gas blast…

“Gas explosion” rocks Scottish building during demolition.

Two people are fighting for their lives following a ‘gas explosion’ in North Lanarkshire.

Homes have been evacuation in the wake of the incident at the building which is under demolition in Newmains.

Two people received urgent medical treatment by trauma accident and emergency specialists with life-threatening injuries and were rushed to Glasgow Royal Infirmary.

It is understood they received urgent medical attention while travelling to hospital.

It is understood the premises may have been near, or part of, Newmains Pastoral Centre. The disused building was formerly used as a retreat centre for the Diocese of Motherwell.

Police evacuated nearby properties following reports of a “strong smell of gas” in the area as a precautionary measure.

Locals talked of their houses shaking from the force of the blast at the former convent building where workers were removing asbestos.

Video – AR Demolition raises security…

Company forced to act as it becomes latest victim of Internet craze.

The company demolishing the former Moorways swimming pool complex in Derby says that it has reviewed its security measures after video footage showed the ease with which children were getting access to the building.

In a statement, AR Demolition said that it is “not taking this incident lightly”.

This comes after a video was posted in a Derby Telegraph article that was taken by an urban explorer showing the ease with which he and others could access the swimming pool building, after a fence was flattened and a hole smashed in a door.

A spokesperson for AR Demolition said: “In light of the recent breach of security at Moorways Swimming Pool, we can confirm that robust security was in place on the site and continues to be compliant with all current operating standards.

This is the latest example of “urban exploration” in which young people gain access to disused buildings or structures under construction or inthe process of being demolished, all in pursuit of Internet fame.

DemolitionNews has already reported on the death of two young urban explorers and has previously called upon the industry and Chris Grayling MP to do more to combat this growing problem.

Breaking News – CDC acquired…

Clarke Demolition Company becomes part of TRU7 group.

In a move that will come as a shock to just about everyone in the UK demolition business, Clarke Demolition Company has been acquired by TRU7, the group that includes Trucks ‘R’ Us hire and sales and Tippers ‘R’ Us aggregates and muckaway haulage.

Industry veteran David Clarke, a former president of the National Federation of Demolition Contractors and a much-respected industry figure, remains with the company and all staff are being retained in a move that has the potential to make the Woodbridge-based company a significant force in the UK demolition sector.

TRU7 has a formidable reputation, a fact that is evidenced by its significant recent investments in tippers, excavators and dust suppression equipment. Company owner Guy Nicholls says that he has known the Clarke family “since he was a boy” and actually regrets not buying CDC sooner.

He says that CDC has an excellent reputation and is planning to back that reputation with a significant investment that will see the arrival of additional equipment and the opening of a dedicated materials recycling facility.

The news of CDC’s acquisition is the latest example of a shift in the UK demolition landscape, and comes just a few months after DSM Demolition was bought out. Furthermore, rumours abound about other big name contractors being acquired.

DemolitionNews will bring you more on this breaking news story soon.

A $21.5 million project to replace the bridge started in 2016. The new bridge, which was built about 80 feet east of the former bridge, opened in July. Demolition of the old bridge, which had been standing since 1932, began soon after.

The kids are alright…

Our children’s book is now available for sale through Amazon.

Two years ago, almost to the day, we launched our children’s book My Dad Does Demolition. Written by DemolitionNews’ Mark Anthony together with C&D Consultancy’s John Woodward, the book is aimed at children between four and eight years of age.

Much to our delight, the book proved hugely popular. In fact, earlier this year, we reprinted it for the fourth time. But now we are taking things to the next stage by launching the book through online retail giant Amazon.

Not only does this mean that the book is far more widely available than ever before, it also means that our office won’t be filled with boxes of books awaiting sale and despatch.
With Christmas 2017 now fast approaching, the book would make an ideal gift for the son or daughter, niece or nephew or grandchild of anyone in the demolition business.

And so it begins…

Work on HS2 has barely begun, and already the protests have started.

A 62-year-old environmental protester has spent more than 20 hours underneath a large digger as part of a new campaign to block the construction of the controversial HS2 high speed rail link.

Sarah Green, a member of the Green party and a businesswoman in Hillingdon, started her protest under the digger, which is to be used for preparatory demolition work, in part of the Colne valley nature reserve at around lunchtime on Monday. Several other activists later joined her under the digger.

As well as wider objections about the ballooning cost of the project, protesters say the work will damage local wildlife. Speaking from underneath the digger on Tuesday morning, Green said she had spent “a beautiful night” there looking up at the stars.

The occupation is the first of a rolling programme of direct action set to take place along the route of the controversial HS2 development, environmental campaigners say.

Green said she and other protesters hoped they would be able to stop it taking place. While parliament has already approved an act for HS2 to go ahead, they hope to capitalise on opposition across the political spectrum.
