Plaza Hotel Implosion

In 2012, our friend, Will Hayes, put Phil Barrington in contact with Bill Mather and Angie Gubser to discuss filming the implosion of an 11-story hotel across the street. Mr. Mather was kind enough to allow Matt and Phil to set up their cameras inside the blast perimeter, on the roof and in a vacant second story office of a building he owned.

Four separate angles of the building implosion of the Plaza Hotel by Precision Demolition on May 24, 2012 in College Station, Texas.
