SELECTIVE & SURGICAL DEMOLITION

A TRUSTED LEADER IN INDUSTRIAL DEMOLITION

EXPERTS AT THE MOST COMPLEX, SENSITIVE NATIONWIDE DEMOLITION PROJECTS

Surgical Demolition, a core service offered by Total Wrecking & Environmental, is the meticulous process of selectively dismantling specific parts of a structure while keeping other (often operational) parts intact. This technique is crucial for projects requiring renovations or modifications without altering the building’s structural integrity.

Our industrial demolition experts ensure every phase, from detailed planning and surveying to safe removal and recycling of materials, is conducted with an eye for preserving the building’s essential elements. This careful and comprehensive project approach not only reduces overall costs and environmental impact but also paves the way for effective repurposing and material salvage.

WHY SURGICAL & SELECTIVE DEMOLITION?

COST EFFICIENCY

Total Wrecking & Environmental’s surgical demolition services are designed to be cost-effective. By precisely targeting necessary areas, we reduce the resources needed (including labor and equipment) and carefully preserve other building segments with extreme precision. On top of that, our surgical demo services include full asset recovery to further reduce total project cost.

ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY

By choosing a project that doesn’t demolish your entire building, you’re creating an opportunity for building reuse or continued operation, both of which allow the project footprint to remain as small as possible. Our surgical demolition approach reduces waste and lessens environmental impact through careful material segregation and recycling.

PRESERVATION OF VALUABLE ELEMENTS

With surgical precision, our selective demolition experts are industry leaders when it comes to preserving vital architectural and historical elements of a structure. We skillfully identify and protect these components, ensuring their integrity for future use or conservation.

MINIMIZED DISRUPTION

We understand the importance of minimizing disruption in densely populated or operational areas, including downtown city blocks. Total Wrecking & Environmental ensures a controlled, quieter demolition process, significantly reducing the impact on surrounding communities and maintaining business continuity wherever necessary.

OUR SURGICAL DEMOLITION PROCESS

PROJECT ASSESSMENT

Our process begins with a thorough assessment of the building and property to evaluate the structure’s specific needs and objectives.

STRUCTURAL MAPPING

We meticulously analyze and map out the structure, focusing on areas targeted for demolition while preserving the rest.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

Total Wrecking & Environmental’s standard-raising and uncompromising safety leadership implements rigorous safety protocols to protect our team, the public, and the environment throughout the entire demolition process.

SYSTEMATIC DISMANTLING

Our ultra-sensitive surgical demo approach sets a new benchmark for the industry. Selective demo specialists will precisely remove designated areas with minimal impact on the remaining structure.

MATERIAL SALVAGE AND RECYCLING

Sustainable practices guide all Total Wrecking projects, including surgical demolition services. We salvage and recycle materials wherever possible, reducing waste and project costs.

POST-DEMOLITION CLEANUP

This intricate process concludes with a comprehensive cleanup, ensuring the site is safe and ready for its next phase.

COMMITMENT TO SAFETY, QUALITY, AND INTEGRITY

At Total Wrecking & Environmental, safety isn’t just a policy; it’s woven into the fabric of our company DNA.

Every surgical demolition task is carried out with an unwavering dedication to keeping our hardworking crews, clients, and community members safe. That’s why we go above and beyond to ensure every single crew member is always up-to-date with the latest safety practices and training.

We build trust through transparent, honest interactions, honoring our family values in every project. This triad of safety, quality, and integrity is fundamental to our identity, making us a reliable partner for any surgical demolition project you have.

SUCCESS STORY / CASE STUDY

CLECO BOILER 6

CLECO’s Coughlin Station consists of 3 combustion turbines (CT) and HRSGs that supply steam to two repowered steam turbine generators, Unit 6 and Unit 7. The Units were repowered in the early 2000s and the natural gas boilers were left mostly in place. The Unit 6 Boiler, an early 1960’s vintage B&W natural gas fired boiler for a 115 MW steam turbine, has deteriorated and requires removal. The scope of the demolition is focused on removing the abandoned boiler and its associated components such as pipes,  catwalks, stairs and steam drums. This project was performed surgically by the use of skilled torch personnel, riggers and cranes to pick boilers down. Once demolition was complete, structures were left in place in preparation to accept a new boilers. A new permanent rail and cover was also installed. All work was done in an active power plant and Total Wrecking was required to work around scheduled plant outages and scheduled maintenance.
