Ryan Priestly named as first WDS 2017 speaker

20 January 2017

The president of the company voted ‘best of the best’ at last year’s World Demolition Awards in Miami is the first speaker to be announced for the 2017 World Demolition Summit in London.

Ryan Priestly, whose company Priestly Demolition won both the Civils Demolition Award and the overall World Demolition Award in 2016, will give a presentation on its removal of the Nipigon River Bridge on the Trans Canada Highway.

He will discuss the challenges involved in removing the original narrow two-lane structure during sub-zero temperatures in a remote part of the country, and how Priestly came up with a solution to the apparently intractable problem.

As president of Priestly, Ryan manages field operations and equipment. He has been committed to and passionate about the family business since a young age, going on to make the company one of the largest and most respected demolition companies in Canada.

The World Demolition Summit takes place at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel, London, on Thursday November 2. It is organised by Demolition & Recycling International in co-operation with the European Demolition Association.

The headline sponsor is Volvo Construction Equipment.
