General Electric (GE) Company, Gear Plant,

Lynn Massachusetts: 

Complete demolition of a 500,000 (foot print) heavy steel structure.

Project involved demolition of the entire facility encompassing many smaller buildings in addition to the Gear Plant. The Gear Plant had asbestos containing roofing material that had to be separated from the waste stream operation during the demolition. The project also involved:

·       Recycling over 12,000 gross tons of heavy steel.

·      Recycling of approximately 20,000 tons of concrete from slab on grade foundation, machine pads and walls.

·      The concrete was crushed to 3 inch minus dense grade product and used for achieving final grade after demolition.

The project had a strict completion deadline of 5 months which was achieved.
