Hello one and all and welcome to our very first issue of Demolition Spotlight! On behalf of myself and the team, I cannot tell you how truly excited we are to share this labour of love with you. We have worked so hard to bring you a mini mag that is truly authentic to the industry, and what better way to launch that with this cracking line up!
Our first case study is with the wonderful Shorts Group, where we touch base with them at the start of a brand new project. Not only that, but our lead interview, Demo Report, is with Andrew Hope of Shorts Group, who tells all about his extensive demolition career. We are also thrilled to have Mark from TL Dallas provide our
very first Demolition Dilemma, where he takes us through the trials and tribulations of demolition insurance. And on top of all this, and the latest news from the industry AND exclusive content just for us, we are excited to celebrate Hughes and Salvidge’s milestone anniversary of 60 years in the business! So without further or do, let’s kick things off! Three, two, one… BOOM!
