More than a decade after the last game had been played at the University of Virginia's University Hall it was over. At 9:58 AM on May 25th 2019, two sirens sounded. One minute later a single siren rang through the air. Then promptly at 10 AM a series of charges began to sound. It took 13 seconds from the first charge until the third home to UVA's Men's Basketball team was flattened. However this process started months ago and took preparation and expertise. These photos are a look into the process of demolishing a large sports arena.
