Location: Boone, IA
Project: Dryer Demolition and Conveyor Support
Year: 2016 Duration: 4 months
Monsanto contracted with Hayden Wrecking Corporation to demolish dryers that were supporting conveyors at their facility in Boone, IA. The schedule required the completion of the project prior to the beginning of the grain harvest in August. The dryers were located adjacent to equipment and structures which were to remain in place. Hayden Wrecking trained demolition craftsmen utilizing manlifts and cutting torches to selectively dismantle structural components on the dryer in order to separate it from the structures to remain. The crew also removed the conveyors from the dryers so that they could be reinstalled. Hayden Wrecking utilized an Ultra-High Demolition Excavator equipped with a rotating shear and concrete processor to dismantle the dryers. After completion of the dryer demolition and cleanup Hayden Wrecking subcontracted the fabrication and erection of structural steel to support the conveyors. The subcontractor then reinstalled the conveyors to complete the project.
