Demolishes Building Adjacent to Substation - NJDescription:
Every demolition project has its unique challenges, but there are times when the most difficult ones are posed by the client's neighbors.
On one such project, R. Baker & Son was tasked with performing a total demolition project of a 3-story building that was immediately adjacent to an active high-voltage electrical substation.
Housed within the substation were dry-type transformers, overhead transmission lines, high-voltage air switches, and PLC control cabinets. Shutting down the electrical substation was not an option, as it would have effected many electrical grids throughout the area. R. Baker & Son had to protect the substation and prevent debris and dust from entering the area while performing the demolition project safely and effectively. Specs:
