  Demolition - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Demolition is the opposite of construction: the tearing-down of buildings and other structures.
For most buildings, such as houses, that are only two or three stories high, demolition is a rather simple process: the building is simply pulled down by excavators or bulldozers.
With heavy equipment, demolition of a house is a two man job that can be completed in a day or two.

 Demolition Delay Ordinance
The Demolition Delay Ordinance (Chapter 2.78, Article II of the Cambridge Municipal Code) was adopted by the City Council in 1979 to afford public review of demolition permit applications for potentially significant buildings.
Demolition is defined in the ordinance as "the act of pulling down, destroying, removing or razing a building or commencing the work of total or substantial destruction with the intent of completing the same." The Inspectional Services Commissioner has provided further guidelines to outline what actions require a demolition permit.
When a demolition application is reviewed at a public hearing, the Historical Commission votes on two issues: first, whether the building is in fact significant, and second, whether it is in the public interest that it should be preserved.

Demolition showcases "Ripper" Owens at his best and Judas Priest released a song like "Nothing Else Matters" and Metallica's Black Album was the masterpiece of the 90s.
