The Best of PDI Bridge Demolitions from 202
The PDI fleet of heavy equipment tears through more than 30+ bridge demolitions across the US and Canada in 2021. We saved some of the best clips for last. Take a look at this year in review compilation highlight video.
Demolition of the Trafalgar Road and 401 Overpass Bridge
This Rapid Bridge Demolition is different from what you’ve seen before. Watch as PDI crews demolish the structure from both the top and bottom simultaneously. Featuring interviews with our crew.
The Kobelco 1600, A Gamechanger for PDI
This heavily modified, Kobelco 1600, 200T beast will allow us to take down higher buildings than ever before.
Victor Mine, Ontario’s First and Only Open Pit Diamond Mine
Must see demolition of the Victor Mine, where calling in for backup isn’t an option. Priestly Demolition flies in additional heavy equipment by Hercules aircrafts, to complete the project in this remote location near James Bay in Northern Ontario.
Underwater Demolition of the Glen Miller Dam 3
Priestly Demolition dives into the murky waters of the Trent Severn Waterway—hammering and removing concrete 16 feet below the surface. This underwater demolition provides a whole new set of challenges, but that’s nothing new for PDI and the bigger the challenge, the more excited we get. Watch now to see how it’s done.
