In the course of his duties, he is responsible for ensuring the company runs smoothly, in addition to managing all types of demolition and training others in the organization for the day that they will eventually take his place. As one of the top five professionals in world in the demolition field, Mr. Perkin is now looking to retire.
Mr. Perkin's publications include "Demolition of Concrete Structures by the Use of Explosives," "Technical Paper No. 3," "Demolition of Concrete Structures by the Use of Controlled Explosives" (Institute of Explosives Engineers, U.K.), and "Demolition of High Rise Flats by Controlled Explosives Implosion of Oak and Eldon Gardens." He attributes his success to his ability to work long hours, flexibility and good team behind him, which he has trained.
