In addition, Stefano Panseri from Despe will present the EDA's first draft report covering the use of high reach equipment.
As usual, the conference will extend from Friday 5th into Saturday 6th, the morning of which will see another project outlined by Francisco Cobo from Detecsa, who will discuss the deconstruction of the Plaza de las Glorias in Madrid. The final technical presentation will be made by William Sinclair from Safedem who will outline the use of explosives in the demolition role. A number of other presentations will be made by the various companies who will be sponsoring the event, outlining the specialist equipment that they can offer to the industry.
