The multi-storey Supertech twin towers were dusted to the grounds on Sunday, August 28, 2022, at exactly 2:30 pm. The 100 m high building that was even taller than Delhi's Qutub Minar came down in 9 seconds using the waterfall method for demolition. In its place, there is a heap of concrete rubble, steel and iron bars.
As per the Supreme Court's order, the debris has to be removed within 90 days. Project Manager of Edifice Engineering, Mayur Mehta informs that nearly 80,000 metric tonnes of debris have been collected on the site. The clearing work has begun with staff from the Authority clearing the waste around neighbouring buildings Emerald Court and ATS Village.
He says, "Around 150 workers from Noida Authority and 60 workers from Edifice are on the spot. The work has started for the removal of the debris. Here, 50,000 metric tonnes will go to the basement and approximately 25,000 to 30,000 will go to the CND Waste plant of Noida Authority based in sector-80."
He adds, “We will plan the clearance of debris accordingly after taking the neighbouring RWAs under confidence so that there is minimum noise and disturbance for the area residents."
He also said that the Edifice Engineering team will use at least 4,000 tonnes of iron and steel (from the debris) to partly recover the demolition cost.
