MB Crusher said that compact and agile machines were required to work on the roof of the building to demolish it one floor at a time. The demolition waste was then put down a hole opened in the centre of the building, to protect the surrounding area.

The solution was a BF70.2 MB mobile crusher that processed reinforced concrete in a narrow space. Because of its size, it was possible to lift the crusher bucket to the 16th floor with a crane.

According to MB Crusher, the result was a saving in material hauling time as well as a significant reduction in dust and sound emissions.
