#41 Demolition of a Small Structure

Description: This is a video taken during the demolition of an old clubhouse in Livonia, MI.  Demolitions like this are quite common today, as old buildings and infrastructure must be replaced with new and updated versions.  Most people think of a wrecking ball when they think of demolition, but as can be seen above, a standard excavator is the only equipment needed for this building.  Look closely near the excavator and a water stream can be seen spraying the debris to keep the dust down.  Dust control during demolition is of high concern to keep visibility clear for safety and to keep dust from covering adjacent land.

  1. It kind of looks like some guy is just peeing on the debris.

    But honestly, I didn't know they did that. Learning- it happens.
