PROJECTS

Our extensive experience and wide-ranging expertise is not exclusive to one specific industry. In fact, we’ve had the opportunity to perform some of the nation’s largest remediation, demolition, and redevelopment projects across a number of major industries including chemical, paper and pulp, manufacturing, and industrial power plants.

Industrial Power Plants

Each type of plant poses its own unique hazards. Power plants are significantly taller than nearly any other building or structure industrial demolitions are performed on. These sprawling, towering, coal-powered facilities include massive cooling towers that can exceed 400 feet tall, compared to a manufacturing plant that on average stands around 2 or 3 stories tall.

As a result, industrial power plant demolitions pose exponentially higher safety risks in order to perform work at those excessive heights. The harsh reality is that falls are a great concern, as is the risk of dropping equipment from such dangerous heights, so performing work safely requires additional equipment, planning, and discussion.

Total Wrecking Power Plants

CHEMICAL PLANTS

Although all mills, plants, and factories have chemicals or hazards on their sites, chemical plants can pose a greater hazard threat than most other plants simply because of the volatility of the resources being stored, produced, or used throughout the facility. Chemicals not only pose threats to the immediate demolition and remediation crews, but they’re also a tremendous environmental risk and need to be approached through planning and surveys in order to understand the risks.

Only then should all chemicals be removed, cleaned, and purged from all equipment, piping, tanks, and vessels prior to all demolition activities. Only the most reputable, experienced, and turnkey demolition company has the expertise to perform work of this magnitude and sensitivity. Total Wrecking is the top nationwide demolition contractor for these needs.

 

Total Wrecking Chemical Plants

PAPER/PULP MILLS

Paper plants by their very nature are extremely flammable, as are other turpentine products and highly flammable materials often found on these sites. Demolition requires the removal of steel, which traditionally requires the use of torches as well as grinders, saws, and other motored tools that produce sparks. That could put a building like this up in flames!

That’s why Total Wrecking uses safe, “cold-cutting methods” that are completely spark-less. Total Wrecking has a wide variety of cold cutting methods that can be used to extinguish any threat of fire or combustion while safely and efficiently dismantling these types of plants.

COMMERCIAL DEMOLITION

There’s no one-size-fits-all solution for any type of demolition, and pharmaceutical or manufacturing plants all have their individual hazards. While these facilities are widely considered lower-risk to dismantle, that does not mean they’re without their own dangers, considerations, and elements that make them complicated projects of their own.

Manufacturing plants often contain chemical hazards that need to be addressed ahead of time, or could produce penicillin that a worker or workers could have a severe allergy to. A plant could be in close proximity to hot oil lines or major power lines, or perhaps work needs to be performed around an element that has to stay active during demolition. Whatever the challenge, Total Wrecking has the expertise and experience to solve each problem thoughtfully, efficiently, and safely.
