Earlier this year, it took Frattalone Companies of St. Paul, an NDA Member, just under 10 weeks to bring the 32-year-old Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome to the ground and haul away the remains. A new and larger $975 million stadium is being built for the Vikings on the same site.

How the past comes down: Demolition at Brooklyn's Domino Sugar complex
Deserted NYC
Behind a green construction fence near the Williamsburg, Brooklyn, waterfront, crews are demolishing and gutting 28 buildings from the Domino Sugar Refinery complex, readying it for a $1.5 billion mixed-use development that the city approved in late April. It's a familiar occurrence in space-starved and development-hungry New York: Contractors demolish old buildings to make room for new ones.

Demolishing Minnesota's Metrodome
Demolition Magazine via ForConstructionPros.com
Built at a cost of $55 million in 1982, the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in Minneapolis certainly earned its place in sports history. It was the only facility to have hosted a Super Bowl, two World Series, a Major League Baseball All-Star game, two Division I collegiate basketball Final Four playoffs and the inaugural season of the NBA's Minnesota Timberwolves. But earlier this year, it took Frattalone Companies of St. Paul, an NDA Member, just under 10 weeks to bring it to the ground and haul away the remains. A new and larger $975 million stadium is being built for the Vikings on the same site.

This concrete-eating robot can recycle an entire building on the spot
Fast Company
Knocking down a concrete building usually takes brute force: Wrecking balls, huge excavators, or explosives rip apart walls while fire hoses spray water to keep the clouds of dust down. It’s an energy-intensive process, and after everything’s been torn apart, the concrete often ends up in a landfill or has to be trucked to a recycling facility. But a new concrete-erasing robot may eventually transform the messy business of demolition.

Fifty years after careful planning and step-by-step construction opened the old Port Mann Bridge outside of Vancouver, British Columbia, those same building blueprints define its dismantling.
