As the IDE announce the new degree in demolition engineering we look back to a Construction News article when John was trying to stimulate interest in demolition as a career.
Here's an excerpt:
"With the shackles of austerity being gently released and an impending election just around the corner, it is little surprise to see a range of major infrastructure projects receiving the go-ahead in our towns and cities.
Multi-million-pound transformational schemes have been unveiled and state-of-the-art CGIs have painted emotional pictures of places we would all love to work, rest and play in.
However, to create this new vision we have to carefully demolish existing buildings or unwanted structures and, if we’re not careful, this is where problems may start."
