Description / Significance

This project consisted of demolition of the old Bangor Walmart building.  The building was a steel frame structure with steel joist and CMU block exterior walls.  The roof consisted of a typical modern insulated rubber roof membrane that had to be removed.  One unique aspect of this project was that the CMU block walls were hollow and contained a Styrofoam like loose fill insulation.  The wall was removed in sections and the insulation was contained and collected for proper disposal.

The scope of work for removal of the approximately 75,000 square foot building included the following:

  • Building Demolition.
  • Processing and recycling of all steel salvaged from the project.
  • Removal and salvaging of electrical switch gear located onsite.
  • Cutting and capping of existing underground utilities.
