    Its called curtain wall cladding where they use fixed point glazing if you look close you can see a structure behind some of the sections often times the architect will specify no frame work around the panels using only a clear adhesive in the panel joints from a distance it gives the illusion that the glass is 1 piece for the whole wall

    I start at the bottom build a big hole than push it down with the backhoe. This should be a one day project if not a 1/2 day project.
    Taking it down from the top is going to take a week.

    I like how the concrete dust plumes out top of the stack; perfectly straight. Really exhibits how well the demolition was planned and carried out.

    That is one of those jobs that would be pretty cool to do. In schools, they never talk about about all of the really cool jobs that are available to people.

    That's because the really cool jobs are blue collar, with involved skills and don't fill universities with wealthy students. While immense corporations spend real physical time and money on STEM education to support their future; it reflects poorly that trade unions participate so little.
