Interior Demo - Making Way For New Manufacturing Facility

Interior Demo - Making Way For New Manufacturing Facility

R. Baker & Son was recently contracted to provide interior demolition services for a new client that had just purchased a 95,000 square-foot rubber tire tread factory. With plans to construct a new manufacturing facility, the owner was anxious to get started with demo and construction prep. 

First to undergo demolition in the facility was a two-story, 8,000 sq. ft. office space. The Baker project team got to work safing off the office area by disconnecting the electrical, plumbing, sprinkler, and teledata systems. Workers removed drywall and other demolition debris from the office area and moved it to dumpsters using telescopic lifts, scissor lifts, a front-end loader, and two bobcats. Metal studs and other ferrous scraps were separated for recycling. 

While the offices were being demoed, two other crews set to removing the old lighting along with obsolete unit heaters and miscellaneous ductwork. All plumbing and electrical were removed except for the main service, which would be used for temporary power needs. Exhaust fans and intake louvers were removed and the openings were blocked with plywood and screening to prevent birds and other animals from entering. Two large bay doors were removed and replaced with temporary hinged doors for future construction purposes. A scaffolding system was erected to allow exterior access to the roof. 

Once interior demolition was complete and the building had been reduced to four exterior walls and a roof, R. Baker & Son sawcut the 6-inch concrete floors, about 20,000 sq. ft., into 2’x 3’ sections for removal so new plumbing and trench drains could be installed throughout the facility. The concrete was tested for contamination, of which there was none, and removed for recycling. 

Safety was a top priority on this demolition and construction prep project, which took approximately five weeks to complete, including complete interior and exterior cleanup before punch list review. R. Baker & Son crews worked from north to south to allow construction activities to start directly as soon as demolition of each section was completed. The project was completed safely and with efficiency, and two weeks were gained on the overall project schedule.
