Abatement & Demolition
Eagle Remediation and Demolition Services, LLC (Eagle) performed the asbestos abatement, asset recovery and demolition of an industrial facility located in Irving, Texas. The facility consisted of two buildings with a total of 265,000 square feet.
The project began with the abatement of approximately 40,000 square feet of sheet rock, 1,500 linear feet of TSI, 27,000 square feet of floor tile and mastic as well as asbestos flashing on the roof. Prior to performing the roof abatement, Eagle utilized the services of a structural engineer to perform a roof inspection to ensure employee safety while performing the roof work.
Simultaneously with abatement activities, Eagle performed the removal of valued equipment including compressors, shelving systems, electrical components as well as non-ferrous metals. The components were segregated, packaged and transported to the appropriate buyer or recycling facility.
Following the abatement and asset recovery, Eagle removed the bulk of the construction debris from the building interiors and transported the waste to an approved disposal facility. Eagle utilized a licensed HVAC company to perform the evacuation and recycling of the refrigerants from HVAC systems onsite.
One wall of the building is located below grade. To maintain the concrete wall and allow it to support the soil against it a structural engineer was used to design a shoring system to support the remaining wall with the building removed. The engineer designed a beam and strut system which was anchored to the wall and concrete floor. Once the shoring system was installed, Eagle partially saw cut and removed the wall above the existing soil level.
Eagle performed the demolition of the buildings utilizing an excavator equipped with a shear attachment to cut the metal building components, an excavator with a thumb for segregating and loading demolition materials and a track loader to assist in demolition, sorting, loading and site cleanup.
Other equipment included a water trailer for dust control and a sweeper to keep work areas clean. The buildings were demolished in sections, allowing the recyclables and debris to be segregated and transported offsite in an orderly manner. Demolition progressed from the west to east where the shared wall is located. Once the demolition reached the wall the upper portion of the concrete wall was removed at the cut line.
Upon completion of the demolition activities, Eagle will clean the site, fill in all openings in the slab and cut any anchors or trip hazards flush with the ground surface. There are three pits onsite. The pits were backfilled with clean fill and capped with concrete. Perimeter fencing will be installed in areas where there is no perimeter fence.
