Watch the Bradley Center Demolition From the Inside
Slow motion video of the detonation and the roof crashing to the ground
By now you’ve seen the roof implosion that took place at the Bradley Center last weekend. In all likelihood, you’ve probably seen it from multiple angles. Maybe you even felt it.
But one angle you haven’t seen is the view from inside as the shape charges detonated and the roof came crashing down.
Advantage Blasting and Demolition handled the actual installation and firing of the shape charges. They also released an incredible video showing the charges igniting, lighting the cavernous room with an orange glow before the massive structure came falling down.
Sadly, the videographer added music instead of the deafening sound of the charges detonating and the collapse of tons of steel. Based on how it sounded outside from blocks away, we will assume it was very, very loud.
If you can’t bother to watch the installation of the charges and exterior view of the demolition, jump to the 1:48 mark in the video to see the indoor action.
