The downtown skyline of Richmond, Virginia is officially different after Dominion Energy’s former headquarters was demolished.
The building was imploded Saturday at 7 am after a brief delay. All 21 floors of the former headquarters were brought down in a matter of seconds.
Controlled Demolition Inc. handled the implosion and said that thirteen levels of the building were laced with the explosives.
“It will go up the building, the building will tilt slightly to the north, then it will fall down into the hole,” said CDI’s President, Mark Loizeaux ahead of the demolition.
Loizeaux added that nine controlled, delayed explosions brought down the building, also bringing a series of booms into the morning sky.
