D&Ri is delighted to announce the shortlists for the 2014 World Demolition Awards following assessment by the international panel of judges, all of whom being well known to the industry, of all the entries received. The winners of each category will be announced at the 2014 World Demolition Summit that will be held at the NH Grand Krasnapolski Hotel in Amsterdam on November 6, with the Awards being presented at the Gala Dinner that will follow the 2014 World Demolition Conference.

With entries having been submitted from around the world, this year’s Awards reflect the most international spread in the Awards’ history, and the overall high quality of the shortlisted entries will without doubt create a major challenge for the judging panel in determining the final, deserving, recipient in each category.

In brief, the shortlisted companies in each category are given below. Each individual entry will be detailed in the special supplement that will be contained in the September-October issue of D&RI.
