Adamo Wins Contract For Silverdome Demolition

It was disclosed this week that earlier this month the Adamo Group, Detroit, has been awarded a demolition contract for the Pontiac Silverdome, an assignment that’s expected to cost from $15-20 million.

The 80,311 seat stadium with air supported roof was used as the home stadium for the NFL’s Detroit Lions football team from 1975 to 2001, after which it moved to Ford Field. Other semi-professional and collegiate football teams used it but the stadium closed for the last time in 2013. Its dome was deflated at that time and has since been ruined by the weather,

Recently the parking lot on the stadium’s 127 acre site has been used for the storage of recalled Volkswagen cars powered by diesel engines.

A June 9th scope of work deadline has been established for the stadium’s owners, Triple Investment Group, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. While unable to determine when demolition will actually start, Adamo has indicated it may begin within 45 days of the June 9th deadline.
