In one sense, a demolition marks the end of a business. Perhaps it’s a shopping center that has lost customers for years and finally closed. Or maybe it’s a stadium that used to be filled with sports fans, but has since been replaced. Finally, the wrecking ball or a large quantity of explosives are used to knock the structure down and start anew.
But demolition is also fascinating and jaw-dropping. A large commercial building demolition has an awe-inducing quality to it like fireworks. Demolition of these structures is often a public event and attracts media attention.

Of course, when most people think of commercial demolition, they think of a massive explosion with a building being knocked down in a single blow. This is the case with very large buildings like skyscrapers.
However, many commercial buildings aren’t demolished with large-scale explosions or wrecking balls. Instead, they’re taken apart through a more deliberate, step-by-step process to preserve and sell valuable parts of the building. This is particularly the case when the building is located in close proximity to other structures.
Boom! There goes a skyscraper
The 47-story Singer Building in New York City is the largest to have ever been demolished (in 1968), and must have been a sight to see. This was briefly the world’s tallest building when it was constructed in 1908.
The Grand Prince Hotel in Tokyo is another one of the largest buildings in the world to be demolished, at 39 stories. A unique fact about this building is that it was actually taken apart by a crane rather than through the use of explosives or wrecking balls.
They save you money
The plain fact is that demolition is a way for businesses to divest of unnecessary buildings without hurting their bottom line. By selling of and recycling a lot of the materials, most businesses actually end up breaking even on demolition. A good contractor will work with you to make sure that anything valuable within the building is sold for top dollar. And who doesn’t want to save money?
