A total of 48 projects and products from more than 30 companies – including entrants from Germany, India and South Africa – have emerged from a record number of entries to contest the World Demolition Awards in Dublin, Ireland, in just over two months’ time.

Demo Awards Shortlisted 18 - Civil

 

Now in their 10th year, the awards will be presented at the World Demolition Summit on the evening of Thursday November 8. The ceremony, at the iconic Aviva Stadium in the Irish capital, follows a conference that takes place during the daytime of November 8 and a networking drinks reception for delegates the previous evening.

For 2018, the Urban category has been split into two sections due to the large volume of entries received. The New Entrant Award, introduced in 2017, will be presented once again on the night, as will the overall “best of the best” World Demolition Award decided by the judges from the various winners.

With presentations in 14 categories it is certain to be a tense, though enjoyable, evening for all concerned.
