Selective Deconstruction in the City Center
Published: 28/12, 2023
When something new is to be built, sometimes the old has to give way. Such was the case in Dingolfing, just northeast of Munich, Germany. There, a school building in the city center was to be expanded, requiring demolition of an adjacent, aging dormitory. Although plans originally called for contractor Karl Mossandl GmbH & Co. to raze the structure over two weeks, a Sennebogen 830 E demolition machine completed the task in a matter of days.
The 830 E was exactly the right machine for job, beginning with its 59-ft (18m) reach, which can be swiveled 360° to avoid having to frequently reposition the machine. The quick-change system for attachments allows the operator to quickly change attachments with the push of a button. The telescopic crawler undercarriage with a track width of 12.5 ft (3.8m), could be telescoped at the push of a button, providing optimum stability through the job, especially on uneven ground. And, the elevating cab, which can be tilted up to 30°, allowed a clear view of the demolition site, plus plenty of space for freedom of movement. The 830 E also features an environmentally friendly drive technology, and easily accessible service points, making maintenance a breeze.
Expediting the demolition gave the contractor a head-start on constructing a new three-story building with a partial basement, plus valuable experience with a highly advanced, efficient demolition machine.
