Oops, you forgot to add that demoliton companies around the globe depend upon the expertise of Brent Blanchard and his company. Remember, they have confirmed that Brent Blanchard is a leading demolition expert in the world. In addition:
- National Demolition Association (NDA)
- Institute of Explosive Engineers (IEE)
- International Society of Explosive Engineers (ISEE)
- Utility & Transportation Contractors Association (UTCA)
And, remember what others have said about Brent Blanchard.
* Brent Blanchard, a leading professional and writer in the controlled demolition industry,
* Brent Blanchard, an implosion expert with the demolition consulting firm Protec Documentation Services
"That's absolutely impossible," Blanchard said. Beyond that, he said, planting the explosives in secret would have been an incredible logistical undertaking.

Brent Blanchard, a demolitions expert with Protec, and contributor to ImplosionWorld.com, weighs in with his expert opinion:
We have never once heard the term 'pull it' being used to refer to the explosive demolition of a building, and neither has any blast team we've spoken with. The term is used in conventional demolition circles, to describe the specific activity of attaching long cables to a pre-weakened building and maneuvering heavy equipment (excavators, bulldozers etc) to 'pull' the frame of the structure over onto its side for further dismantlement.
Read where it says; "Blast Team." When I spoke with Protec, and others, they basically told me the demolition process involves a "team," and not a single person. To further add, each person of the team can take credit for their part in the demolition process, but you would have known that if you had done your homework.
