Science Park Demolition, Cambridge - April/May 2007

It's not every day that an entire building is removed from the Science Park. Apparently, this particular office/laboratory building has to make way for a terminal to service the controversial "guided bus" that is being built into North Cambridge. Nosher's office is a few hundred metres away, and the earthquake-like rumbles of destruction could be clearly felt in our building

After a day or so's demolition, much has already been destroyed

Big skips are filled up with scrap metal

Heaps of iron girders lie around

Air-conditioning conduit hangs limply down from the roof

A huge mechanical hand rips away at the building's fabric

Half way through demolition

A digger rests for the night after its feeding frenzy

Going... going...

...gone. The site is almost clear
