Mark your calendar. The day of the Kingdome's demise -- March 26 -- is drawing near.

Contractor Chosen For Kingdome Demolition
Jun 15, 1999
The demolition contractor has been chosen by First & Goal and Turner Construction for demolition of the Kingdome, planned for early 2000.
The contract has been awarded to Aman Environmental Construction Inc. of Covina, California who will perform the actual preparation, salvage and post implosion concrete processing and recycling work, in conjunction with Controlled Demolition, Inc (CDI) of Phoenix, Maryland, who will develop the implosion plan and perform the demolition of the Kingdome Structure.
Now that the contractors for this project have been selected, First & Goal and Turner Construction will complete the details of the full implosion plan which will be submitted to the appropriate city, county and state agencies for review.
The regions of WTC 1 and WTC 2 that had fireproofing materials reportedly reapplied to their structural steel, are also the same regions within which each building structurally failed and that were struck by American Airlines flight 11 and United Airlines flight 175 on September 11, 2001.
Turner Construction Company occupied the 38th floor of WTC 1.
