  • The Orange Bowl Stadium

    Posted on July 13th, 2010 Pam No comments

    After 70 years the Orange Bowl condition was declining and the decision was made to tear it down.
    The stadium had a 72,000 seat capacity and was 70 years old.

    When tearing down the Orange Bowl Stadium in Miami, 95% of it was recycled. They could have demolished it in a very short time, but decided to take it apart piece by piece.

    The cement was used as filler in roads, the steel was mixed with coal and melted, some was recycled into ‘orange bowl’ man hole covers.

    The demolition took 6 months, with over 6,000 tons of steel and over 250,000 pounds of plastic.
