World Demolition Awards: Urban Demolition

11 May 2020

Tell the judges why your confined space or urban demolition contract should receive an award at this year’s event, which takes place online on Thursday November 12 at 3pm UK time.

It may have been unusually complex or demanding. It would have been delivered on time and budget, and completed safely.

A client testimonial is expected, and control of noise, pollution and disturbance will be considered.
