MILWAUKEE — The roof on Milwaukee’s BMO Harris Bradley Center was demolished on Sunday, Jan. 13 and we’re now getting an inside view of the explosion.
Officials at Advantage Blasting & Demolition, based in Pennsylvania, shared video of the demolition on their Facebook page.
Company officials told FOX6 News a crew of five set up and carried out this demolition.
“We are thankful to the contractors and the people of Milwaukee on a great outcome,” said Shannon North, VP of Advantage Blasting & Demolition.
Crowds gathered in downtown Milwaukee to see the demolition in person — and it did not disappoint. In just about two seconds, more than 30 years of Milwaukee history came crashing down.
Crews removed the Bradley Center’s roof from the structure using “shaped charges.”
There’s no official word yet on what the future holds for the site, which is located right next to the new Fiserv Forum.
The BMO Harris Bradley Center’s demolition is expected to be finished by the summer of 2019.
