Project Additional Body Rendered

Breaking down demolition challenges

The project involved the removal of two elevated walkways above the light-rail transit lines in Calgary’s downtown core, which restricted the demolition to short periods of time coinciding with the early morning, off-hours line service maintenance schedule. The Bluebird demolition team developed a unique and innovative solution, specific to the project requirements, to ensure the demolition was completed safely and with minimal disruption to Calgary’s transit services.
