On November 10th in Madrid was held the Spanish Deconstruction Forum, the annual event of the Spanish Demolition, Decontamination and Concrete Cutting Association (AEDED).

The event was a huge success and included specialized conferences, round tables and opportunities for professionals to meet. The day ended with an awards ceremony full of memorable moments and several winners.

There were 5 categories:

  • Demolition Award: EPIROC won the product award and EXCADE the job award.
  • Decontamination Award: the product award was for DECERSA
  • Diamond Award: TYROLIT won the product award and RE-CORTA the job award.
