School Projects

We’ve performed asset recovery, demolition, and abatement on schools around the country.

BD Lee School

Gaffney, SC

This project required an asset recovery effort and a demolition of remaining facilities. Assets were staged in areas to protect them from loss until sale. Once an area was clear of assets, the site was demolished. Target worked closely with the Owner and auction company to ensure recovery efforts were maximized.

In addition, asbestos was abated, universal wastes collected, and refrigerant recovered prior to starting demolition. Building components were sorted and recycled with any proceeds added to the asset recovery.

Over 100,000 square feet of buildings and structures were removed or demolished in three months.

School for the Blind and Deaf

Old Boys Gym, Spartanburg, SC

This project included the demolition of the aboveground structure, as well as footer removal. Work was completed in a short time during a school break for the safety of the students. County sediment and erosion control plans were followed, including grading for positive drainage.

The project was completed on time with no safety incidents.

UNC Chapel Hill

Koury Natatorium, Chapel Hill, NC

This project, located between the Dean Smith Center and the UNC Basketball Hall of Fame, involved the physical separation of the front offices from the rest of the Koury Natatorium Building which was to remain in place and occupied during the work.

The interior was gutted to minimize nuisance dust migration prior to the building separation. Mechanical means were used to separate and demolish the building while maintaining a ventilation shaft, mechanical room, and live fire suppression system. Grade beams that supported the structure were removed, and the existing caissons were hammered down below grade.

A second mobilization was required to demolish the above grade ventilation shaft, and mechanical room after the building that remained was changed over to a new system. The work took place on an active campus with heavy pedestrian traffic with no incidents.
