The company conducting a downtown Vancouver demolition gone wrong did not have a written safety plan in place, according to a City of Vancouver report.

Global Excavating & Demolition Ltd. also didn’t have final clearance from the district building inspector on June 10 when two exterior walls of a building being torn down fell on the street, crushing a fence, lamppost and newspaper boxes.

It was the company’s first attempt at taking down a building, after 14 previous demolition permits for single-family homes since 1995.

The city has suspended Global Excavating’s two active demolition permits until a review is completed and the company reimburses for damages.
