PCB contamination within areas of an industrial facility that actively manufactures metal parts for jet engines and other industrial applications required removal. Envirocon demolished several large contaminated structures at the active facility and managed the scrap recycling program for the client.
- Abated, decontaminated, demolished, and disposed of three main structures (over 70,000 square feet) and ancillary buildings at the active manufacturing plant
- Removed structures included steel framing and decking, reinforced concrete, chlorinators, wash towers, hopper systems, fan units, ductwork, piping, and other processing equipment
- Used an 80-foot high-reach excavator to demolish structures in a “top-down” manner
- Overcame challenging working conditions with deteriorated buildings using surgical demolition to avoid damaging buildings and control rooms that remained operational during demolition
- Project completed with zero safety incidents or environmental exceedances under strict monitoring and adherence guidelines from state and local regulators
Envirocon managed the aggressive schedule by flexing personnel and equipment resources daily to maintain productivity. Our team also prepared an alternate plan and worked closely with the client, engineer, subcontractors, and local regulators to demolish a ventilator system that contained galbestos cladding with a felling approach prior to abatement. This recommendation was approved, and the demolition proceeded with zero air quality exceedances or impacts to the project schedule.
