Industrial Projects

Across the country, we’ve worked on massive industrial sites for demolition, lead and asbestos abatement, and asset recovery.

Georgia Port Authority

Savannah, GA

This project was on the Georgia Port Authority property, which required all workers to have TWIC cards for access. This port is the busiest port on the east coast with thousands of trucks per hour entering and exiting the area.

All trucks used for materials, equipment, and disposal had to be scheduled and escorted.

The removal of the complex left the property exposed to the canal with no security fencing. We were required to leave a partial wall in place until the end of the project and work with Port Police and fencing subcontractors to ensure 100% security to the site. The work area was also partially over the water, so we took care of equipment and demolition debris to ensure no environmental impact. Personnel wore PFD while working near the water. Tides were monitored to ensure spoils piles were removed before high tide.

The project was completed on time with no safety incidents.

Jasper Cultural Center

Jasper, IN

This project required abatement and demolition of the former Hoosier Desk facility. Care was taken to remove items such as doors and beams to be used in the new Jasper Cultural Center, built on the same site.

The just-under-75,000 square feet facility was demolished by conventional means, and over 6,000 tons of brick and concrete were sent to a local recycler for reuse.

The project was completed on time with no safety incidents.

Georgia-Pacific Gypsum Plant

Sigurd, UT

This project included the complete above ground demolition and abatement of a 150,000-sq. ft. gypsum and wallboard plant. The buildings and manufacturing equipment included a crusher building, mill building, board plant, warehouses, shower house, kettles, tanks, storage bins, grinders, conveyors, dryers, outbuildings, pipes, and pipe racks, and above ground utilities.

A variance was obtained to remove asbestos cement (Transite) panels from a portion of the roof during demolition. The roof was sprayed liberally with water during demolition, and air sampling was conducted to assure compliance with state regulations.

This project was completed eight weeks early with no incidents. Over 190 loads of ferrous materials were shipped off-site for recycling.

Acme Site

Quanah, TX

Above ground storage tank and outbuilding demolition, as well as asset recovery of equipment, was the scope of work of this project. Elevated work required torch work from a manlift and a crane for rigging.

While demolition included a rock storage tank conveyor building, a partition wall and old conveyors were maintained for future use.

This work was completed in an active mining facility, and all employees received MSHA training to be on site.

Santee Cooper

Cross Phase 3-4, Pineville, SC

This project involved precise and controlled demolition of the bottom ash hopper while avoiding contact with the boiler coils. Our work was done at heights over grated flooring that required spark containment using fire blankets, water, and multiple fire watch personnel.

The economizer removal required working closely with crate and rigger operations. Sluice piping demolition required burning at heights and rigging of materials to be lowered to the ground. This project was completed under an accelerated schedule working 24 hours per day.

All work was completed on time with no incidents.

Santee Cooper

Cross Generation Station Units 1-4, Pineville, SC

This project required the full abatement of mastic, selective demolition of the gypsum dewatering building and complete demolition of two lime silos. Additional work was added to the scope that required two 12-hour shifts for the bottom ash hopper soil excavation removal, economizer demolition, SCR demolition, and pipe demolition.

Concrete material was crushed on-site for reuse and recycling. Project was completed on time with no incidents.

Former WASTEC Facility

Wilmington, NC

This project required the deconstruction and removal of a portion of the former WASTEC Facility. A portion of the main plant remained intact with the exception of partial deconstruction necessary to complete removal of two overhead cranes.

We backfilled and compacted over 3500 cubic yards of fill material, rerouted electrical circuits to maintain the shop and high bay fixtures in the tipping floor area, and installed concrete piers around steel columns. The project was completed on time with no safety incidents.

Tropicana Tank Farm

Bradenton, FL

This project required selective demolition and dismantlement, management of stainless steel recovery, and partial plant decommissioning.

Pepsi Plant

Florence, SC

This project required asbestos abatement and demolition prior to retail redevelopment.

Stevens Steam Plant

Graniteville, SC

Abated in excess of 6500 linear feet of an elevated steam pipe and completely demolished the Stevens Steam Plant which powered Avondale Mills. We removed six tanks, two coal silos, one ash silo, and two 394,800 gallon fuel tanks.

Agrium Plant

Wilmington, NC

The project included the selective demolition of all fertilizer plant equipment, along with the roof penthouses. Project detailed rigging and shearing of equipment while maintaining the integrity of the structure. We were able to complete this job one month in advance of our projected completion date.

Kinder Morgan

Charleston, SC

Pipe removal over water.

SC Port Authority

Charleston, SC

Saw cutting and joint sealant. Demolition of 6500 square yards of concrete 17” thick. Loading and hauling.
