The latest gathering, styled “Demolition Rockies” and held in Aurora, Colorado, attracted almost 1,100 industry professionals and 90 exhibitors, while the outdoor Live Demolition event drew a crowd close to 700.

This year’s event marked the close of Scott Knightly’s two-year term as president. The Envirovantage man handed over the reins to Chris Godek of Connecticut-based New England Yankee Construction, with Scott Homrich of Homrich Inc becoming the new vice-president.

Other highlights included the presentation of a Lifetime Achievement Award to Leonard Cherry of Houston demolition specialist Cherry Companies and the inauguration of the NDA Hall of Fame.

There were also panel discussions on utility plant decommissioning and demolition projects from the owners’ consultant perspective.

The Excellence in Demolition Awards went to Priestly Demolition, Stryker Demolition & Environmental Services and Ferma Corporation.

The 2020 convention and expo takes place from February 22 to 25. For more details please visit www.demolitionassociation.com
