Sports stadiums and indoor arenas are unique structures with cantilevers and clear spans to provide unobstructed views for fans. Such venues can be in open areas, flanked by parking lots or tucked into congested urban settings surrounded by streets, rail lines and subway tunnels below, to move fans to and from the events.
These robust complex structural systems carry high loads, and concern for worker safety during the demolition of these facilities is heightened, as a result.
Time is always of the essence when professional teams with fixed schedules change facilities, and demolition costs come under pressure where public funding can push acceptance of the lowest bidder’s offer, even if their experience with such projects is limited.
CDI’s experience in felling unique structures under challenging site circumstances and our fast-track performance capabilities can be a game changer for owners, general contractors and demolition contractors in getting complex structures on the ground safely, quickly and cost effectively.
