DemolitionDVD - 2007
From trains to ships to demolition debris, learn the innovation, creativity and technical prowess that make waste useful again. Long gone are the days when debris was simply shipped to landfills or dumped in the water to form jetties. Now nearly every component of a building - from rubble to decorative fixtures - will find a new use. There is great value not only in the structural materials, such as concrete, brick and steel, but also in a wide array of vital, non-structural items like copper wire, stairways, plumbing, insulation, ventilation systems and even glass. For many of the grander structures, hand-crafted and unique architectural features are carefully removed and restored to new life. In this episode, see how the demolition boneyard is a vast and efficient industry providing the expertise, skills, and the increasingly specialized tools to make sure nothing goes to waste.
