Italian term or phrase: Cantiere (di demolizione)
"Cantiere" is generally "building/construction yard" but here it's the opposite ("demolition") - only I'm afraid "demolition yard" is not exactly what I need: does it indicate the actual site of the demolition, or is it more like a scrapyard? If so, which is the correct erm I wanna use here? Thank you!
