Deconstruction the theme for the EDA
By Lindsay Gale20 May 2014
June 12 to 14 will see the EDA annual conference take place in Madrid, Spain, at the Hotel Intercontinental Madrid. The theme of the event is ‘Deconstruction’, with a total of 14 presentations to be made on Friday 13 June, covering a range of topics related to the demolition sector. According to the EDA: “The demolition industry is about handling the space change, taking care of the needs and/or requirements of the customer to leave an empty space. To do so, we need to work together with other industries so deeply connected to the demolition, as part of what is now called deconstruction: hazardous waste decontamination, concrete sawing and drilling, dismantling, decommissioning, demolition, preparation for recycling, recycling.”
“These activities are all connected, being ourselves (the demolition industry) an important actor to all of them. EDA is inviting all these industries to celebrate together an open conference and debate sessions about our work together.”
The presentations range from practical demolition case studies, such as the AfE Tower demolition in Frankfurt, through to others covering concrete cutting, market evaluations, waste recycling and hazardous waste handling.
