Many of the projects undertaken by PDC Ltd have been high profile and have generated media interest. From January to June 2008 we were closely followed by the camera's for discovery channel. This is part of a series called 'Extreme demolitions'.
We were able to give them lots of great material from the planning through the preparations and finally to the blowdowns. The series producers were focusing on the technical aspects of the work which provided an opportunity for us to show the world what we do and how we do it.
In June 2008 we carried out a world first in the use of the hot shot electronic detonation system in multi-storey demolition. By use of this system we are able to specify the firing of charges to 1 millisecond. This allows us to precisely design the sequencing of elemental drop giving precision control of collapse as has never been seen in the past.
