Nashville, Tennessee (WKRN) – Two dormitories on the campus of Vanderbilt University were demolished on Saturday in a controlled implosion.
According to a release from Layton Construction, Carmichael Towers 1 and 2 were demolished with a controlled implosion. Carmichael Towers 3 and 4 were demolished in 2019.
This dismantling gives way to a new boarding university under the Future VU program on campus that supports the university’s academic strategic planning.
The controlled implosions occurred only a few seconds apart from each other.
“These towers are located on West End Avenue, one of Nashville’s busiest streets, lined with shops, restaurants and hotels. Succeeding in blasting the Vanderbilt dormitory is sure to succeed. It took a lot of planning and accuracy to do this, “said Shawn Farrell, construction manager at Leighton Construction.
