Client: Midwest Service Group/Mississippi Lime
Location: St. Genevieve, MO
Project: Bag Houses and Preheaters
Year: 2015 Duration: 1 month
Mississippi Lime Company contracted with Midwest Service Group to abate asbestos and remove the existing baghouses, preheaters and associated structures at their facility. Midwest Service Group subcontracted the dismantling of the baghouses, preheaters and associated structures to Hayden Wrecking Corporation. The items that were be to removed were situated around equipment and structures that were to remain in place. Hayden Wrecking utilized an Ultra High Demolition Excavator equipped with a rotating shear to dismantle the baghouses. A standard configured demolition excavator equipped with a rotating shear was used to further process materials and load out. The rotating shear was then replaced with a hydraulic breaker to remove the concrete foundations. Hayden Wrecking utilized a hydraulic crane and its trained demolition craftsmen to dismantle the elevated equipment and structures. The Ultra High Demolition Excavator equipped with a rotating shear was used again to precisely reach into the structure to selectively dismantle the gunite lined preheaters. The hydraulic crane and trained demolition craftsmen were used again to selectively dismantle the remaining structure. All salvageable materials were taken to a recycling firm and Hayden Wrecking assumed the salvage value of the materials.
