5. DUST IN THE WIND

When the excitement of the blast is over, a large, billowing cloud of dust is one of the most identifiable characteristics of a successful project.

DID YOU KNOW that according to most experts, that dust cloud actually makes explosive demolition more neighbor-friendly than a conventional demolition project?
Think about it: When buildings are brought down conventionally (by wrecking ball and other heavy equipment), they release dust particles into the air every day—in every direction—for several consecutive months. Using the explosive demolition method, these dust particles are released at one predefined time, in one direction. This gives neighboring businesses, as well as local residents with existing health problems, a way to avoid or prepare for the dust with minimal inconvenience. The result is a safer project all the way around; fewer man-hours spent in a dangerous, unstable building, and less public exposure to the inevitable by-product of any demolition job—dust.
