Video Footage of Demolition of Newark Fire Station

Sometimes, before we can build something new, we have to demolish something old. Here is a time-lapse video featuring footage of our demolition of Newark Fire Station. Note, watch the fire engines coming-and-going as the demolition takes place. Impressive stuff!

For more information about the project, see the article Work begins on Newark’s new fire station by the Newark Advertiser.
