Concrete chimney demolition: case study


In March 2004 Bailey International was awarded the contract to demolish a 70m concrete stack containing 3 steel liners. From the onset the project raised safety issue due to its close proximity to an adjacent building, a mere 4m. The adjacent building contained large glazed façades and was in use by site personnel day and night. Working from a fully protected sliding scaffolding deck the solution was to use a diamond tipped chain saws to cut the concrete and steel liners into sections that could be lifted safely by crane. The demolition was successfully completed on time without any incidents.
