CREWS BEGIN TO DEMOLITH NORTH YORK MANION GUTTED BY WEEKEND FIRE
CBCNews Toronto - Posted January 3, 2017
Crews have begun to demolish what is left of a North York mansion gutted by an early morning fire on New Year's Day. The multimillion-dollar house on Forest Heights Boulevard was under construction. The fire early Sunday left a burned facade. Stephan Powell, District Chief for Toronto Fire Services, said Tuesday the building had to come down. "The structure was unsafe," he said. Powell said "it's far too early" to say what may have caused the fire, but arson has not been ruled out.  "I don't think anything has been ruled out," Powell told CBC Toronto. Large flames were visible going through the roof and the house's second-storey windows, and could be seen for some distance. The heat from the blaze was said to be intense.

LONDON HOSPITAL TEAR DOWN NOT YOUR AVERAGE DEMO
Daily Commercial News, Mary Baxter, Correspondent
By all accounts, it’s not your average demolition contract. First, there’s the nine-storey hospital with several wings and several other structures. There are also underground tunnels that link the hospital to other buildings on the street. And don’t forget the asbestos: it’s in everything from ceiling tiles and insulation for piping to vinyl tiles. Even in an industry where no demolition is alike, the dismantling of London Health Sciences Centre’s former South Street campus stands out, says Paolo Provenzano, president of ProGreen Demolition Ltd., the Concord, Ont. company that is undertaking the first phase of the former hospital site. Because of its size the project has been divided into five areas. “Right now what we’re doing is the asbestos removal in the interior strip in the main hospital wings; and we’re doing some separations of some structures and also some demolition of structures,” says Provenzano in late March. In one area, the amount of asbestos was so great that its removal required supplied air to keep workers safe. But the volume of asbestos does not come as a surprise: the project “was called out as an asbestos hazard remediation structural demolition,” he explains. Pinchin Environmental Ltd. has been monitoring the hazardous material’s removal daily. The material is double-bagged and approved before it’s put into transport trailers to be disposed of at a licenced facility. “This is very labour intensive because of the magnitude of asbestos in the buildings,” Provenzano says. Currently, the company is running 75 workers on site to deal with its removal.

TOWER CRANE POWERED DEMO IN DOWNTOWN TORONTO
Originally posted in the Daily Commercial News
In what the demolition contractor believes is the first-of-its-kind operation in downtown Toronto and possibly in Canada, a landmark 1928 Art Deco building is being demolished exclusively by tower crane.

In a top down sequence, the historic Concourse Building at 100 Adelaide Street West is being dismantled with the use of a 12-ton KNF tower crane with a short boom to avoid contact with adjacent towers in the tightly congested area.

The building is being taken down to make way for the new 42-storey EY Tower which is being built by Oxford Properties Group as part of its Richmond Adelaide Centre development.PCL is the construction manager.
