One of the most successful seminars was held at One Great George Street on 24 September 2010 with members and guests flooding in from all over the country.

On paper, the idea of an Institute of Demolition Engineers seminar with no specific demolition content looked a little less than promising and was, perhaps, the reason that DemolitionNews was the only press outlet that saw fit to attend.

But, in truth, the focus upon all things waste was an accurate reflection of the direction in which the UK demolition industry is headed; and several of the presentations – hand-picked by IDE vice-president John Woodward – served as an early warning of the challenges (and, in some instances, threats) that will face the demolition sector in the coming months and years.
