An engineering marvel gone horribly wrong deals CDI their strangest challenge yet: demolish a brand new hurricane-proof tower. It’s a shot at a world record – the tallest concrete reinforced building ever to be imploded. Thirty-one storeys high, Ocean Tower’s three massively-reinforced cores boast 30 inches of concrete and rebar. But this robust construction came with a twisted cost – this heavy super structure is sinking into South Padre Island’s soils. The team’s never encountered anything like this: a building on a faulty foundation, perilously close to brand-new residential developments and ecologically fragile dunes. To drop it, they’ll have to push demolition engineering to its limits. It could be a world record – or a world-class disaster.
