On Sunday, May 25th at 7:00 a.m., the ASU Twin Towers were imploded live on KAIT and on kait8.com, ending an era at the University and marking one of the largest demolitions in Jonesboro history.
Region 8 News was live at the event with full resources. Now, you can relive the massive demolition that garnered national attention.
The building has been unoccupied for the past several years and the university has wanted to get rid of it to make room for the future.
The contractor on the implosion is Chandler Demolition who has been on site since March deconstructing the building to get ready for the implosion.
"We have to prepare the building for implosion. In this building it meant gutting out four different floors plus a portion of the basement. Those are the blast floors," said Ricky Chandler, President of Chandler Demolition.
1,100 holes have been drilled in the building and explosives have been placed in the basement, first, third, sixth and eighth floors.
