    Non-explosive demolition of a building is accomplished as follows:

    The demolition project manager/supervisor will determine where undermining is necessary so that a building is pulled in the desired manner and direction. The walls are typically undermined at a building's base, but this is not always the case if the building design dictates otherwise ,at this point`fire can effectively be used to soften the structural steel...however..In some cases a plane is used to demolish the structure down to a certain manageable height. At that point small office fires will do the rest this method is used for tall buildings where and explosive demolition is not appropriate or possible.
