Demolition Contractors Are Creators

Demolition Contractors Are Creators

If you are interested in demolition, R. Baker & Son recommends the National Demolition Association’s video “Introduction to the Demolition Industry”. This informative video explores the history of demolition and the demolition contractor’s role in urban renewal, recycling, environmental cleanup, restoration, and disaster response.

Narrator Ed Asner describes demolition contractors not as destroyers but as creators of space for new construction, of ways to reuse recycled building materials, and of jobs. Demolition brings tax dollars into new communities, creates space for new parks, and protects public safety by removing dangerous structures.

The demolition industry is described as constantly evolving to meet new safety regulations and environments restraints. Interior demolition clears old factory space to make way for new equipment, and remove interior walls to create modern office spaces. The video features footage of building implosion, heavy equipment demolishing homes, buildings, bridges, industrial complexes, and oil tanks, giant shears cutting through steel beams, and machinery is shown crushing and grinding concrete.

Asner talks about demolition contractors’ involvement in the removal of hazardous materials like lead, asbestos and PCBs, as well as the recycling of materials like concrete, steel, iron, copper, and wood. Historic preservation is discussed, describing how demolition contractors dismantle building interiors while leaving facades and other architectural features intact. “Demolition is not destruction”, Asner says. “It’s the first step in creation.”
