As characterized by outgoing National Demolition Association Executive Director Michael Taylor, most of the demolition contractor member firms he hears from stayed busy throughout 2013 and into the first half of 2014. "In mid-2013 things started to pick up dramatically," says Taylor, "with lots of bidding activity, even in California where things had been slow for quite a while."
