When I met up with Robert Young, he had just been promoted to the position of development director at Downwell Group; so he had every right to be positive, upbeat and even ecstatic.But he wasn’t.In fact, as you will hear from the conversation that follows, Robert has some very serious concerns about the state of the UK demolition industry; about the procurement process; and about pricing.And we would urge you to stick around to the very end of this show because Robert Young concludes with a truly stark message for the sector.

An extended interview with Holly Price, newly-elected president of the National Federation of Demolition Contractors that covers everything from Brexit and mental health awareness to industry diversity and training.
Regular readers of the Demolition magazine will know that, earlier this year, I was at Caterpillar’s training and demonstration area in Malaga, Spain for a major international press launch of a number of new products including the new Cat 340 SB straight boom demolition excavator.As ever, Caterpillar was the consummate host. The equipment was impressive, the weather was warm and the hospitality was even warmer still. But for all that, my lasting memory of that trip was not of machines or of sardines in the sunshine but of the work Caterpillar is doing behind the scenes to combat the perennial but potentially deadly issue of operator fatigue, alertness, vigilance and distraction.This is an issue that is addressed in this exclusive and extended episode of Demolition News Radio by Mitch Cowart of the Caterpillar Safety Technology team.

Telematics don’t get a bad press. In fact, in many instances, it gets no press at all.You see, the problem is, advances in this area tend to get lost amongst details of new machine launches.Which is a shame, because telematics is perhaps the most dynamic part of the demolition and construction equipment market right now.It is developing faster than any other aspect of the plant industry, and it holds the potential to enhance safety, reduce fuel consumption, reduce emissions and make the entire industry safer, more productive and more profitable.So we caught up with three key members of the JCB team to find out more about the advances in its LiveLink product offering.

So, an Englishman joined a party of Europeans in Japan to record an interview with an American...!During the recent European Demolition Association Study Tour to Japan, Demolition News Radio caught up with Christopher (Chris) Godek, the new president of the National Demolition Association in the US. Godek gave a memorable speech to mark the official end of the formal part of that tour, and so I grabbed him as he came off stage to capture just some of the flavour of that speech and to find out more about the hopes and ambitions of an outgoing, forward-looking and statesmanlike NDA president.

This extended episode of Demolition News Radio was recorded almost entirely in Japan during the European Demolition Association Study Tour to the country.Unscripted and largely unedited, this episode has been recorded to capture some of the sights, sounds and even smells that I encountered during a truly memorable trip to a truly remarkable country.My thanks to Caterpillar and to Finning UK for making the trip and this podcast possible.
Against a backdrop of political and economic uncertainty, the UK construction industry continues to confound and confuse.Builders' Conference CEO Neil Edwards attempts to make sense of an industry that is seemingly rewriting the rule book.
This is the pilot episode of what we hope will evolve to become the latest series on the Demolition News Radio network.The basic premise of this show is very simple.   Take a dozen or so standard questions, and ask individuals from across the demolition spectrum to answer them as honestly and comprehensively as possible.   Over time, we are hoping this will give us all a unique insight into the industry, hence the name of the show.So, in our pilot show, we have set our dozen questions and asked Chris Charlton of CJ Charlton Group to share his insights.
