The World Demolition Summit takes place on November 6 at Amsterdam’s NH Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky, bringing demolition contractors from across the planet to the Netherlands.
In addition to the usual networking opportunities associated with conferences, the one-day event offers a series of highly specialized talks, including in-depth looks at asbestos remediation, selective bridge implosion, and use of 3D modeling to estimate vibrations and dust dispersion. There will also be discussion dedicated to the decommissioning of the former Bethlehem Steel plant in Sparrow Point, Maryland.
The summit is created and organized by KHL Group and Demolition & Recycling International, in partnership with the European Demolition Association (EDA). As part of the festivities, awards will be doled out to the teams behind various international projects. Chicago-based Brandenburg Industrial Service has been shortlisted as a contender for four awards:
- contract of the year over $1.5 million;
- contract of the year under $1.5 million;
- safety and training; and
- recycling and environmental.
Costello Dismantling Co. Inc. (West Wareham, Massachusetts) is up for the urban/confined space award, while Dust Control Technology (Peoria, Illinois) is a contender for the innovation in products category.
