MACHINE DE DÉMOLITION TOPDOWN WAY LYON – France
In collaboration with Despe NV, we have created a platform for the controlled demolition of skyscrapers: a modular machine that adapts to the shape of any skyscraper. The system, unique in the world, was used for the first time in Lyon for the deconstruction of the UAP tower. The machine is certified by IMQ for welding processes and destructive testing, but not for the materials and welds themselves, to guarantee the highest quality and the possibility of use worldwide.
