Crews Preparing Atrium Building For Demolition

 
 

LETHBRIDGE - Work has begun to bring down the Atrium building downtown.

 

Equipment has been brought in, fences have been put up, and crews are starting site prep to protect the adjacent buildings.

 

Director of Community Services Bary Beck says "you're not going to see like you see on TV, news, or in Hollywood where they blow a building up and it drops in one piece in five seconds, you won't see a wrecking ball just ripping into this thing, because of the adjacency of the other buildings what they'll end up doing is nibbling at the building, bringing little pieces down at a time and working through the building very cautiously because safety is the paramount thing here."

 

Beck points out the alley behind the structure will be quite busy during the demolition and they could potentially close one lane of traffic on 7th Street for about a week, but that hasn't been fully decided.

 

The actual demolition is expected to get started sometime next week and could take up to 30 days.
