Let us continue with part two of our Circuit City Demolition blog.
Once we had our sledgehammers and tools in hands this puny building did not stand a chance. Built with mostly drywall and stucco, it was no match for our sheer force and dedication to demolish it. The guys really worked in tandem and took out these walls at a nice and easy pace before moving on to the structure. There we several beams that were sticking which were used for wiring inside of the walls and we also had to take those down. Whenever you are demolishing beams you must always check to make sure they are not a load bearing beam. These beams generally hold up the roof and make sure the roof do not fall on your head! Safety was our number one concern and once we checked with the building manager he gave us the OK to go ahead and swing our hammers to take them down. Once again they were easy to destroy and the guys did a great job altogether.
We were kind of sad once the building was completely stripped down as some of our guys used to shop there on a regular basis. We bid our farewell to the large building and picked up our tools for the next demolition Los Angeles that awaited us.
