IDE celebrating its 40th year

Posted: 31st March 2016

From humble, some may even say parochial, beginnings, when a small group of the leading lights in the UK demolition industry came together in 1976 to create a new professional body, the vision of those founding fathers has become an established and respected reality and under its 21st, and youngest, President, Duncan Rudall, The Institute of Demolition Engineers marks a special anniversary as it reaches is 40th birthday.

The IDE has grown, settled and established for itself a national and international reputation for fostering and promoting individual and industry professionalism. It supports and represents the full breadth of the demolition sector, from the newest students to the leaders of major national and international companies. Proud to partner with the NFDC and NDTG, the Institute of Demolition Engineers promotes education, training and professionalism that can take members from their first days in the industry through apprenticeships and incremental development all the way to Chartered Engineer recognition.

On 1st July 2016 the Institute of Demolition Engineers is gathering to celebrate 40 years of achievements and to look forward to the next 40 years. Join demolition engineers from across the UK and from overseas at The Science Museum to mark a true milestone and to be part of the way ahead.
