Demolition in Progress

We are taking advantage of the school holiday period to carry out the demolition of the old languages block.  

Perhaps not what you are expecting, the demolition of the building is not so dramatic. We use a excavator fitted with a special jaw which literately chews the building into smaller pieces!

You can see the excavator spraying water on the building to keep the dust down.

The old library and staff room during demolition, the method of demolition is to clear a hole into the building and then rotate and start moving down the building in parallel, a bit like a large pac man.
