A quiet day in the office, not

They are taking down the building next door to my office. Last week a large tyrannosaurus shaped machine snipped its way through the brickwork, cladding and steel girders leaving a large concrete space. Man and machines followed to divide the spoils – metal to recycle, rubble to transport to other building projects

Today they start with ‘Badger Breaker’ – from the maker’s website it can break a two meter strip of concrete a minute up 30 cm deep and turn it to rubble. Guess what, it is not silent.
