The future of demolition is seemed to be dust free and boring, and its a good thing.
With the current skyscrapers being over 150 meters, taking them down in crowded environments like New York or Tokyo would get very complicated and expensive (via cranes) or dangrous (via explosive demolition) through traditional ways.
Which is where Japan’s Taisei Corp. came in. The Taisei Ecological Reproduction System, or Tecorep builds enclosures around the top of the building while preserves the roof. It ensures a safer environment with less sound being leaked out as well as significantly less dust being scattered to the streets. Additionally, power is also generated when the debris is lowered to the ground with the now enclosed cranes, further lowering costs.
Now, does that sound good or what?
