Owner and President, Controlled Demolition, Inc.
Explosives demolition applications and their future in our changing society.
Mr. Loizeaux’s presentation is going to cover the types of structures and site circumstances that lend themselves to explosives demolition operations on both standard and emergency projects.
He will cover the pros and cons of explosives applications based on construction, structural configuration, structural condition, and the nature and proximity of adjacent improvements to remain. He will also speak to how our society is changing and how the explosives demolition industry “culture” is responding to those changes.
