Futuristic Twin Tower in Noida : Why are Noida twin towers being demolished

Futuristic Twin Tower Demolition

The stage is set for the demolition of the Noida twin towers build by realty firm Supertech. The nearly 100-meter tall structures - taller than Delhi's iconic Qutub Minar - in Noida's Sector 93A would be razed to the ground at 2:30 pm on Sunday, August 28. While all residents of two adjoining societies Emerald Court and ATS Village would be removed to carry out the Supertech Twin tower demolition, which will be done through collapse by Edifice Engineering, the company that has received the demolition contract.

While the Noida twin towers will be demolished through collapse, let us take a look at the process.

What is collapse?

Collapse is a mechanical process through which objects are destroyed by implosion themselves. It is the opposite of an explosion and the volume occupied and concentrates matter and energy get reduced to perform the collapse. "Implosion is when we make a building or structure fall inwards, unlike explosion where the blast is outward" as per Utkarsh Mehta, the founding partner of Edifice Engineering.
Edifice Engineering along with South Africa's Jet Demolition has drilled around 10k holes on the Supertech twin tower buildings - Apex and Ceyanne to carry out the process.

Why is Noida Twin Tower Being Razed via Implosion?

Utkarsh Mehta said that for any project the method of demolition is chosen depending upon three criteria, including safety requirements, time availability, and viability.
"When we got the details of the project and visited the site, we imagined that collapse would be most suitable. "The other technology could have been robotics, but that would have caused a lot of noise and there are neighbors in the environs. The Supreme Court had already ordered that this project should be done in the shortest possible time and we also had precedence and experience from Kochi (implosion of Maradu flats)," added Mehta.

How Much Debris Will be Produced Through this Technique?

The starting of the Apex and Ceyanne towers would leave behind a whopping 42K cubic meters of debris. the debris will fill up around the tower and a huge part of it would be accommodated in the basement. Some of the debris will also fall on the road near the tower.

Meanwhile, 4000 tonnes of iron will be produced due to the demolition of the Noida twin towers, and Edifice will recover the cost by selling. It will take 90 days to clear the debris. while trucks will make 1300 rounds to carry them.
