Ford Health System
14-Story Steel Structure
Demolition and Implosion
On January 19, 1997, North American Dismantling Corporation imploded
a 160,000 square foot 14 story steel structure in downtown Detroit.
The building owned by Henry Ford Health Systems was originally built
for the Howard Johnson Motor Lodge Company and later was converted
as a sleep depravation clinic for the Health System.
Included in the scope of work for this project was the demolition
of a 65,000 square foot cast in place concrete parking structure
and an 8,000 square foot theatre. The structure, located at
the corner of Third Street and West Grand Blvd, was imploded at
exactly 10:00 AM and all streets and sidewalks were operational
within 2 hours of the denotation
Careful planning and execution resulted in the absolute minimum
inconvenience to the neighboring businesses and community.
